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.
