What’s in a number?

Haven’t we become too overtly reliant on these self-appointed measures of conformity?, ‘act age appropriately’ ‘dress for your size’ ‘you’re too tall to wear heels’ ‘too short to wear flats’ ‘Issumar tak shadi nahi hoi?’ ‘36,24,36’ Akhir kyun? Agar mein moti houn to kyun na pehenou ghaghra choli? agarmein chalees ki houn to kyun na pehnoun shokh rang? If YOUdont like what YOU see, look the OTHER WAY. What do you say ladies, isn’t it high time we broke free of these self-afflicted shackles. What’s the only thing that matters when making a choice as personal as the clothing to put on one’s body is if it makes you feel good, like your true best self. We were astounded by Touqeer’s beauty and charm, and boy! did we have a ball of a time shooting with her, she stunned in every ensemble we put her in, whether it was a demure three piece ensemble, a bright and loud kurta, or even a gharara, seeing her so comfortable in her skin really reaffirmed our belief that beauty really is a state of mind.
