Indian women taking dangerous 'fat pills' to GAIN weight and emulate curvy Bollywood stars
Daily Mail UK ^

Posted on 05/06/2013 10:14:35 AM PDT by Perdogg

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.

The western world’s idea of “attractive” seems to change every decade or so.

"frequently heralded as the world's most beautiful woman"

When can we put an end to this "world's most beautiful woman" and "world's sexiest man" idiocy? First of all, who decides these things? Secondly, do they check out every man or woman in the world before they make these claims? Obviously not, the choice is always made from among a few hundred celebrities who get a lot of publicity. Thirdly, of all the beautiful women and sexy men in the world, some would appeal to some, and others to others, and there would be so many possibilities to choose from that it would be impossible to choose.

You cannot stay Miss World forever.

39 years old it’s time she was allowed some slack.

I stand corrected.

I did a quick Bing image search... the woman’s got it. She really does. Fat or skinny, she’s a lovely thing.

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.

of course, the point I was making was that “Plumpness” is an attribute of a beloved Hindu Deity.

Sorry for mixing up the genders.

She's pretty, but the "world's most beautiful"?

Not quite...

Don't know if that's true, but she's certainly a contender.

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.

“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.

If they just want to put on weight then I recommend a couple of these every week...

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:
