Perception

August 21, 2009

After a few viewings of TV programs in India, N1 asked me

“Amma, in all the soap advertisements, they show skin-coloured people, why ??? Indians are brown, aren’t they ??”

PS: skin colour = ‘white’ as in say, Germans – N1’s definition

Our nephew, the 5 1/2 year old Kanna, with an arm stretched, asked me in a complaining tone –

“Do I look brown ?? N1 says it’s brown colour !!!” (Kannan is ‘fair’)
