this post is in honor of all the girls who feel the need to shun their culture and heritage because it’s not white, and yet have to endure all the “how do you get so tan” questions from white people. this post is for all those girls who grew up - either in america or india - being told that to be white is to be beautiful. this post is in honor of my culture, my background, my heritage, my spirituality, my religion, of which i am fiercely proud. #reclaimthebindi
