Let me tell you a secret.
When I was a kid, I’d always wanted to have a photoshoot done for myself - you know the kinds that models have? That one.
I think as teenagers in India, so many of us had these little fantasies of becoming actors or models, but I must admit I was a bit more glamour-struck than many others. I would pore over magazines like Filmfare, Cine Blitz etc., trying out different outfits and looks and deluding myself to believe that some director/producer was going to discover me one fine day.
So, I just came across a meme on social media the other day that said this:
“I’d rather eat pizza and drink wine than be a size zero.”- Sophia Loren
Most men responding to this post went gaga about how they like women where there’s something to grasp, how they like the kind of bodies that were depicted in our temples, how only women with love handles are the ones who can be called women.
Then there are memes that say things like “You’re fat. Don’t sugarcoat it, cause you’ll eat that too.”
