Goa's Beauty Contest: Miss Natural – by João Barros-Pereira

Goa's Beauty Contest: Miss Natural – by João Barros-Pereira

Skin whitening and skin lightening creams are extremely popular in India, and Goa in this way is a part and parcel of the country. India is undoubtedly two countries geographically, and consequentially aesthetically, too. In the north there are four distinct seasons unlike in the south where we have a lot of sun and rain.

The sub-continent is also racially made up of two countries, Aryans and Dravidians. Since melanin is necessary for human beings to fight against strong sunshine, it is not at all surprising to see the majority of people have a dark skin complexion. Unlike in the south, the majority of the people in the north of the country are fair, especially in the Punjab, Kashmir and so on as their blood is mixed with that of people beyond our political borders which is indeed cold if not very cold. As is well known, Alexander the Great visited India 2500 years ago and some of his soldiers married local women and settled down in the Punjab. Much later, people of mixed heritage were born in British India and Portuguese Goa
