I was actually going to propose your point but the other way around- (i hope this doesnt make anyone angry, but feel free to refute me if you disagree) but I was wondering if maybe this fair skin obsession sprung about <b>because of a sense of internalised rascism?? </b>Perhaps, because of all our years of British colonialism, and white domination, and globalisation now, there was this sense of cultural inferiority amongst Indians toward thier Asian culture, and this brought about the perception that fair= more beautiful and superior, even when a very small percentage of the country is actually fair? I kind of got this from hearing stories about the way some black tourists are treated over there, especially in comparison with thier white skinned counterparts- but please tell me if you think I'm completely off the mark here.

Do study this phenomenon not just in Indian context, but also, say, Brazil and South Africa. Perhaps your hypothesis will get tighter along with the problem's contextualization.

Cheers.
