Divinity & our belief in the God give us peace, happiness, prosperity & positivity. Also, it teaches us to respect all the fellow beings. But how come we judge & differentiate people on the basis of their complexion?
Why’re people so obsessed with the fair skin?
Another surprising fact in a country like India where all the people are blessed with human skin complexions. How is it that our Gods & Goddess supposed to be so fair?
(Even in The Ramayan & Mahabharata!)
We truly respect that The Gods & Goddess have taken different forms according to the mythologies but have you ever in your dreams thought of they getting a makeover?
The Chennai Based Film Makers Naresh Nil & Bhardwaj Sundar breaks the barrier about the fairness of skin & challenging the obsession of the society! All thanks to the two creative minds who broke the notion of white is associated with holier-than-thou!
As stated on the Facebook page Naresh Nil Photography , the purpose is simple:
“By depicting Gods we revere as dark-skinned, this initiative aims to celebrate a different view of their divinity, serenity and all pervasive beauty by going beyond perceptions. Dark is not just beautiful, but divine.”
