All colours are not the same.

Recently we had an InFB Challenge that a fellow blogger and I thought out, and if you follow me on twitter, you'd know that I was busy co-ordinating the whole challenge. Basically, it was called the VIBGYOR challenge. Read more about it HERE. So instead of doing an outfit post, or a diy or just a random colourful post, I decided to complete a painting I was doing already. So I went ahead and did this. The above picture you see is my painting. 

Now I'm not a painter, neither do I claim to be good at painting etc. But its something I've always enjoyed doing from my childhood. Be it in art classes at school, or drawing competitions in the society. Drawing and painting, always attracted me. So I gave continuity to this hobby of mine through the challenge and did this painting, that's more like a colourful message. 

About the painting: 

As the painting clearly sends out a written as well as painted message of a topic I often rant about on the blog, it also shoes how all colours are not the same, and people are just like that. We all are unique and amazing in our own ways. 

I'm not a stick figure and I'm proud of it, is an affirmation that I believe in and say. I wish a lot of people out there would be more confident about their figure no matter what. With movies, television, radio and media in general setting the bar for perfection high, society also expects people to be a certain size zero. I often read on a lot of blogs that their relatives are saying : Tum kitni moti ho gayi ho? Kab patli banogi, ladke sab intezaar kar rahe hain. (You've become so fat. When will you become thin? All the boys are waiting)

Its statements like these that ruin the world. Does that mean people who aren't so called thin are not fit to be dated? 

While people will continue behaving and thinking the way they do, its a few that actually try and make a change. I am definitely standing for us people who aren't stick figures. We have curves, we love em. We are confident of ourselves.

All colours are not the same, just like all people are not. 

What do you think of this post?

  1. that painting was nice.. cool :D

  2. I have never got the idea of a stick figure,
    How did it even come into existence ?

    I am in love with my curves :) and yours too sweetie :)

  3. Love the Post ,great Words! You look gorgeous :)

    Lovely Greetings from Austria ♡

  4. All the boys are waiting? That's a crazy thought. No one should change their weight for anyone else but themselves. And if you are happy and confident in the way you look, then that's all that really matters. There are definitely girls out there who was stick thin and completely lacking in confidence.

  5. Such a great post! I can't believe relatives would say that! Our society does place a huge emphasis on skinny. I remember reading Sweet Valley High a long time ago and the characters in the book were described as a 'perfect size 6.' Now the fashion industry would consider that fat. I bet if those books were written now it would be a size 2 instead of 6. So what is going to happen in 10 years? Will 2 be considered 'fat'? It is ridiculous. It has to stop!

  8. The painting & the message is beautiful :)

  9. That statement is so curt! "all the boys are waiting, become thin"
    I think it's high time that people start accepting who they are and then getting comfortable about the idea!
    because one you're confident, no one else can shatter you by making such stereotype statements!
    totally agree with you Sonshu :)

    Much Love,
