Do you remember the remake of Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on “Internet in the Mahabharata era”? He is back with another remark and this time on Indian beauty. On Thursday CM Biplab Kumar Deb said, ‘Diana Hayden doesn’t represent Indian beauty, only Aishwarya Rai does.’
Aishwarya Rai was a quintessential face of Indian beauty, pretending that the parameter to choose Miss World and Universe 5-years in a row was market-driven.
According to his statement:
“Indian women did not use cosmetics in the old times. Indians did not use shampoo, they washed their hair with methi water and bathed with mud. These beauty pageant organisers are international marketing mafia, who spotted a huge market in the country. Today, there is a beauty parlour in every corner of the country.”
At the design workshop held in Agartala, the BJP leader said, “Indian beauty should ideally look like Goddesses Lakshmi and Saraswati. Diana Hayden did not deserve to win the Miss World crown. Actually, it was part of a fixed plan which was hatched keeping in mind the interests of the international market. Aishwarya Rai’s victory was well deserved as she represents the quintessential Indian woman.”
Not only limited to this, his media advisor Sanjay Mishra told the leading daily, “The chief minister made the remark on Diana Hayden in the context of how international cosmetic companies fix the outcome of beauty pageants to capture the market in a particular country. The chief minister was only trying to promote India’s own traditional ways.”
