Femina Miss India 2019 lacks inclusivity: Twitterati

Twitterati calls out lack of inclusivity in Femina Miss India 2019:

Miss India Beauty Pageant is one of the most prestigious ones in every country. The winner represents the country all around the world, so she must be deserving right. Recently, Times of India published a collage of the contestants for Femina Miss India 2019 in the newspaper. And soon after it was posted a Twitter user shared the photograph and asked people “What is wrong with this picture?”

To this the people reacted:


Meanwhile, a former contestant of Miss India shared her views on colorism in pageants.

People started pointing out the fair representation of India beauty and obsession of Indians with light shade tone cards.

People said it seems like the girls are not presenting their own states but just the North – failing to represent the diversity in India.

After all this discussion Twitterati came to a conclusion that this is a representation of India’s unfair obsession with lighter skin and a huge failure to represent the dark beauties of the nation.

In India mostly lighter skin tone women have won the title. Whereas, if we look at their countries they have diversity in colorism.

What do you think about this?
