What a way to wanna be!!

The other night i was having dinner with bunch of friends n i noticed that one of them ( a super sexy chica)had a wallpaper of DOSTANA on her phone... now i ask her do u like the movie so much??? ... n she says.. not really its just that looking at priyanka chopras flat stomach makes me want to work out more...!!! n we went on to curse her for a little bit before returning to our meal...

N it not just us..Its everywhere...i saw this pic of an Indian model in a magazine..5ft 10"... 52 kilos!!(imagine what that looks like)...everyone wants the hot body...i think its competing with the big pay package or the dream man!!...the articles on how britney spears or jessica alba lost their pregnancy weight are hot on the internet!!!..despite the financial crisis places like VLCC and Labelle are making big money...the street corner chai bandis are being replaced by gyms..n kareena kapoor has taken the place of johnny depp on our walls...

i wish it didnt affect me but it does..i worry about what i eat... i drag my dog along for a longer walk when ive had a chocolate pastry..i like skinny people a little lesser..n i feel like its all around me..my girfriends.. my sister..all gorgeous women...in the quest for the so called perfect body...it constantly reminds me of this line in a shania twain song "Bigger is the best!!... but only in the chest.. What a way to wanna be"...i cannot rationalise my own behavoiur leave alone trying to do the same for all the women in the world.....

What i can do of course is wish that this trend would die... that women can eat our burgers n fries without being guilty...be comfortable in/with our curves...n remove perfect body of our wishlist n replace it with something that would make us happier!!

Your first random thought amuses me, not because of the thought, but as it's quite clear how a young girl who does not want to get burdened by peer pressure, amicably resigns to her being one among the many who dont want to, but still do.

A great begining I must say, All the best!
