There are more fairness cosmetics targetting Indian men than women. Are they that gullible? Or is it Inferiority complex. I'm not interested in this topic vis-a-vis women.

|That was not the original point I'd made. I am trying to get a hang of your systems op. I was specifically asking about fairness cosmetics? - SHANA MARIA VERGHIS - 5 years ago|
|When I said, "looking Good" , it includes all kinds of Cosmetics. For example, Chandan, Kasturi are some of the cosmetics used extensively to look good. Additionally, "Sura Panam" the divine drink that makes anyone look young. - rambabu - 5 years ago|
|Saffron has all the qualities that enhance skin color. Men using cosmetics is not uncommon . This practice was necessary even according to those times of yore - rambabu - 5 years ago|
|That's all very well. But the topic is about obsession with being fair. Not personal grooming. - SHANA MARIA VERGHIS - 5 years ago|
|Prevailing trends in the Society dictate the human habits. With the times, these habits turn in to obsessions. Nobody wants to look different from others. When Wearing Jeans is the trend, no one dares to go out with a Lungi. Obsession for Cosmetics is no different. - rambabu - 5 years ago|
|Yes, I understand all these points. But I want men to respond on why they think some of their fellow members are so obsessed with this. Because I've been thinking it over for a while, since I saw Shahrukh Khan, who I thought was fairly intelligent, advertising a fairness cream. And frankly I thought he was promoting racism, even further. So I had planned to write an article for my paper, and I even checked cosmetics stores. Of course it was a random survey, but once I gave it my attention, I noticed that many men's cosmetics have a fairness product. And this is not that true of the women's products I saw. It is entirely possible that the shops I went to did not stock the line. But it gave me something to think about. I even discussed this with several of my men friends and he said that actually he was chatting to some American guys on the web. And one of the questions he was asked by them too was, "Why are you Indian men so hung up on being fair?" And these were a bunch of guys in a chatroom. I know a very well known musician who was dark skinned, and not bad looking. And then like Michael Jackson, he started to look weird, because he had been using bleach, of all things. So basically I'm looking for opinions. From 'their kind', if you like. Obviously there is a weak spot that the market is happily exploiting. The key words are fairness cream obsessed Indian men. - SHANA MARIA VERGHIS - 5 years ago|
|Well, was not aware that you were looking for answers from males only! - Kalyani Nandurkar - 5 years ago|
