This Diwali let’s take a pledge to esteem all people based on their innate value and not judge them based on their skin colour. In celebrating skin colour diversity we give back to people the dignity they deserve. In the past this was not seen as a serious issue. Dark skinned people were expected to take negative comments about their skin colour in their stride and not make a big deal of it. But this Diwali let’s make a big deal of letting our nation know that radiant comes in every colour.
This Diwali let’s decide to lead change!
- Sign the petition
- Make some noise on Thunderclap
- Post a respectful appeal to Emami on their Hi Handsome page to lead change
- Organize a petition signature drive
- Join us in Mumbai to request Emami to ‘take down’ the Fair and Handsome ad
There’s something we can all do to celebrate 1.2 billion shades!
