"Fair?" Skin Colour in India.
I don't get it. These people lived under the boot of the English. WHY would they want to look white? The products they use to "bleach" themselves won't make people white. The fathers in the film saying such nasty things about their kids, and the teachers even saying mean things because children are "too dark?" Poor kid, to hear his own mom saying what do you think? That he goes to school with the English children that he should expect to be treated well and be able to study? Schools for people like them are schools where no-one cares. The little boy douses himself with powder to try to fool the other children... but he always sweats and the ruse is up.
