The poet writes about the deep seated malaise in Indian society, which glorifies fair skin, and demonises dark skin - not realising the profound effect it can have on our mostly brown population.

Being dark, dusky, is not a disability
Being black, brown, is not a disease!
I’m handsome too…
Maybe you can’t find it!
But that doesn’t matter any more
Why it should always be
Fair and lovely, fair and handsome?
Why in every Indian story,
Mythologies, fairytales, Bollywood movies
The prince, princess, heroes…
Always depicted with fair skin?
And the devils, villains
Often portrayed with dark skin?
Why is the idea of being beautiful,
By default attached to being fair?
And only fair mean to be lovely and handsome?
Is really black, dark, ugly?
No, it is not, If it is..
Why is wearing black loved more?
Why are facial moles considered as beauty marks?
People write: “black is love”
Is really black love? Or just black attire.
I’m one in a million who experienced it!
Makes me feel uncomfortable with my own skin!
You are the reason…..
I didn’t loved the real me.
Installed beauty cameras
Just to click fair.
Kallu, kaliya, kali…
Hurts, not the words
But those hatred expressions
You know what I feel when someone says –
“Kali hai aacchi nahi lag rahi,” indicating someone.
“Aaccha wala photo do na”
“Tere liye West Indies se ladki lani hogi”
“Aaj tu gora lag raha hai”
“Koi fairness cream kyu nahi lagata?”
It’s not your fault!
We learn, what society reflects.
What does it, really?
You need to be fair…
To be successful.
To be confident.
To clear an interview.
Simply – black, brown, dark, is useless…
And those who endorse fairness creams…
SRK, Sonam Kapoor
Katrina Kaif, Kareena, Kavya
Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra , Virat Kohli… Etc
Stop endorsing fairness creams
Huge crowd follows you,
Think before it…
Skin color can’t be changed,
Don’t support colorism.
But this is not the truth
This is conspiracy,
Conspiracy to make every Indian feel
Discomfort with our own skin
Every skin is loveable,
You have to understand…
You are precious
You are born to be happy
Nobody can put you down!
Unless you allow them..
Just smile and forget what others want
Beauty is not about being fair!
It’s about being yourself!
It’s about having a pretty soul!
Be the faith in humanity

From all news reports, clearly, Aftab Poonawalla seems to be a psychopath, and It was a well-strategized story of domestic violence, abuse, subjugation, and a well-planned murder.
Trigger Warning: This deals with domestic violence, gaslighting, murder, and abetting violence, and may be triggering to survivors.
One case has gripped the nation and I do not need to mention which. My problem is with how the news reflects a victim’s character. The disrespect we show to someone who was long abused and lives no more is appalling. The disservice we do to her through spoken and written words lies in the sensationalizing of the entire case.
How do you spot a crazy human? They do not have two horns and red eyes. They may have no empathy but will show it to lure the victim, just like a child abuser lures a child with candy. Their grooming styles may vary but it is mostly about creating an untrue sense of safety and security around the victim. They present themselves as this effortless savior, an ultimate generous destination for a mentally and emotionally vulnerable person.
Fathers play a crucial role in nurturing and raising children, so why isn't paternity leave considered essential?
Some time ago, Bollywood couple Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt were in the news, yet again. An entertainment website, Bollywood Hungama, reported that the expectant father, Ranbir, wished to take paternity leave to spend time with his baby when it arrived.
The website claimed that the actor would not be signing new films for the time being. He would take care of the child, while his wife Alia would return to work at the earliest.
One would think the internet would laud this sweet and thoughtful gesture. Instead, Ranbir got trolled for his decision to be a stay-at-home dad. Netizens made fun of him; they claimed that it was because he had no offers in the pipeline, and Alia was far more successful than him. Others claimed that it was the right decision – his recent films (other than Brahmastra) had bombed, and it was time he reflected on his roles.
