    Dark skin is just another feature. You mentioned that “Also, even if a fair skinned Indian girl is fat or has blunt facial features she is still considered more beautiful than a slim and sharp face featured but with dark skin colour Indian girl in most cases.” Obviously, in general, sharp features look better than blunt features, slim body looks better than fat. For the same reason, fair skin looks better then dark skin tone. Dark skin men may be more acceptable than dark skin girls, but if you think about it, short girls are more acceptable than short men.
