A Cultural Look at the Beauty of Indian Women

Beauty: A Divine Asset

Beauty is a God-given gift. It is lovely, natural, artistic, and can leave your heart a-flutter. The concept of "eternal beauty" carries on when one is able to recognize beauty, possesses it, and carries forth its message.

In his famous ode, Keats said, "Truth is beauty and beauty is truth. That's all ye know, and ye needs to know."

Indian girls and wives are among most beautiful things in the world. Read on to learn about their attributes.

An Indian Woman's Beauty

Culture and values

More modern styles and the Western trend of doing things has led to Indian women shedding their traditional outlook to some extent. These trends have led to the apparel changing a bit. Their lifestyles change, as well — many Indian women move out of their homes earlier than did did before, while some modern girls have adapted habits of drinking and smoking, and so forth.

However, this is not all Indian women. In fact, the above mentioned ladies account for less than 1% of the population in India. The majority of our ladies are still God-gearing, kindhearted, and committed and devoted to their life partner only. The values of family still hold strong and true for these women. These all play a role in the cultural beauty of an Indian woman.

Facial features

The majority of Indian ladies have one of the following type of facial shape:

  1. Round face
  2. Triangular face
  3. Square-shape.
  • The last one is not as common as the first two.
  • Nose. The most attractive part on a person's face is the nose. Beautiful Indian women have finely-shaped noses — they are either triangular or small. The smooth tip makes it appear nicer.
  • Eyes. The eyes will be largely black, with brown eyes being a close second. However blue eyes are very, very rare for Indian women.

Apparel

  • A saree is the most suited dress for traditional Indian women.
  • Churidars are also equally respected and make up a proper outfit.
  • Skirts are not usually worn by majority of married indian women, though they aren't prohibited.
  • Jeans and shirts are not also seen on Indian ladies these days. However they are mostly donned by educated ladies, college students, and those living in cities and big towns.
  • Wearing a loose top-like jubba (shirt) is now on the way to gaining acceptance as an honourable outfit. In big cities, adult ladies also wear jeans and tight shirts, which gives a sexy look.
  • The younger generation is definitely developing a leaning towards sexy dresses, due to the influence of western trends.
  • Properly worn dresses in general almost always enhances one's beauty.

Indian ladies have taken care of dressing themselves for a long time. In olden times, even in Ashrams of Saints, it is said that ladies used to decorate themselves, with flowers. Even today, donning oneself with flowers as a part of their accessories or outfit can be considered a unique preference for Indian ladies. Sarees are also uniquely Indian for thousands of years.

Goddesses

Indian culture also views its gods and goddesses also as beautiful individuals. For example, Lakshmi (the goddess of wealth), Saraswathi (the goddess of knowledge and learning), Parvathi (the wife of Lord Shiva), are all very beautiful. Prayer verses praising their beauty have been sung for thousands of years now. It is said that their beauty is the symbol of their bounty.

"Sathyam, Shivam, Sundaram"

In Indian culture, beauty is considered as the expression of godliness.

  • "That is beautiful, which is favorable to all," says a Samskrit hymn.
  • The actual meaning of the word "Shivam" is also a favorite. "The beauty is that which does good to all." Meaning that even if a person seems facially attractive with nice features, they are not truly beautiful unless they do good things.

I admire India because you preserve your ethnic culture well. Modernization does not mean Westernization. I admire Indian women because they remain Indian in an era when Western culture dominates teh world.

Most of the Indian women are beautiful, because of the culture, which is based on age-old secrets and the ancient wisdom of past experience. These secrets are a legacy passed down the generations from mother to daughter.

I am a europian girl and I want to know about the complexion , hair , eyecolour and all features of an Indian women.

Dear Ruby,

Indian ladies generally have black hairs.when they grow old, hair color turns white.

But now, some people (both men and women) color their hairs to brown as a fashion.

Body complexion is either block or white, of course, in varying degrees.People of Eastern India i.e. from the states of Manipur, Arunachal pradesh, and even Assom, have a very good white complexion.

Eye color is either brown or black. But we like black colored eyes much.
