Bollywood star and former Miss World Aishwarya Rai, frequently heralded as the world's most beautiful woman, was criticised last year for failing to lose her baby weight after the birth of her first child. Fans said the Indian model-turned-actress, 39, had let her country down, with people commenting on a YouTube video about her fuller figure, saying 'she is a Bollywood actress and it is her duty to look good and fit', and 'she needs to learn from people like Victoria Beckham who are back to size zero weeks after their delivery'.

In a country where a cup full of rice per day and starvation are the norm, the standards of beauty are a bit more Rubenesque than ours, it seems.
I was going to post a picture of the goddess Ganesha....
TTIUW out pics....
3 point deduction in posting fame....
The western world’s idea of “attractive” seems to change every decade or so.
> I was going to post a picture of the goddess Ganesha....
Ganesh’s gender is male.
You cannot stay Miss World forever.
39 years old it’s time she was allowed some slack.
It’s a good thing I didn’t post a picture then!
I stand corrected.
We could send them some twinkies...
Oh wait.... they closed due to big labour...
I did a quick Bing image search... the woman’s got it. She really does. Fat or skinny, she’s a lovely thing.
A search reveals many images here:
Well we are talking about India here.
That back seat triple-chin shot with the sour puss isn’t ‘lovely’...but, still much much better than Kim K on her Twinkie Binge Diet.
> When can we put an end to this “world’s most beautiful woman” and “world’s sexiest man” idiocy?

Sorry for mixing up the genders.

Thanks for the clarification. “In His (or Her) image...”
Send them Krispy Creams. There is only one proven way to get fat and that is to balance copious amounts of food and sitting on ones butt. If get fat quick schemes seem to good to be real, they generally are.
Send them Krispy Creams?
Hell! Send them Moochelle. Just eat what she eats and you’ll be plenty zoftig, my gosh, my golly.
“In a country where a cup full of rice per day and starvation are the norm...”
Thirty years ago this was true, but ironically even though their population now exceeds one billion, India is a net exporter of food. Starvation exists among the poorest of the poor as it does everywhere in the world, but to say that “a cup of rice per day” is the norm is no longer true.
How did they do it? They got rid of socialist collective farms and adopted western agricultural techniques, including widespread use of chemical fertilizers, heribicides and pesticides.
Nod diet sodas either.
One would think that all of those elaborate dance numbers would keep them in shape. Bollywood has produced more movies than Hollywood does for years, a fact Bollywood supporters will tell you so often that you’ll wish something bad would happen to them. He’s what most Bollywood movies are about;
Your post reminded me of an article I read recently about the pitfalls in India’s agriculture outlook because of policy mistakes:
