A collage featuring all 30 participants of Miss India 2019 beauty contest raised twiterrati conversation. It has caused a heated debate as online sleuths tried to figure out why the girls looked so similar. Plus the “light” grim fact that all had such fair skin.

An Indian user has posted the photo-collage from Times of India paper on Twitter with a question: “What is wrong with this picture?.” Enthused post got an avalanche of replies.

All of the contestants had dark shoulder-length hair and fair skin tone. Thus the organizers of the pageant were slammed for sticking to a single beauty standard. Some commentators even suggested that the girls were clones. Erstwhile others insisted that they were pictures of the same person.

A few philosophically noted that the girls being so alike was actually a good thing. This is reasoned as they could all consider themselves the winner when one of them takes the crown.

Darker-skinned beauties were not fighting for the title, despite India being such an ethnically diverse country. Some backed up by pointing out that such a situation was typical for the pageant.

India’s obsession with white/ fair skin is an everlasting trend. Note that the majority of Hindu gods being depicted as white-skinned. “Fairer is better” is the slogan that many Indian women hear from their early years. Reason being it’s easier for those with lighter skin to find a good husband.
