I had to bring this up because I feel pretty strongly about it.

I picked up the Gulf newspaper one morning (as I am now based in Dubai), along with a magazine called Scene that comes with it. The cover story was Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s weight issue. I simply don’t get this! Not only models, actors but even fashion designers have been endlessly criticized for promoting models that are too thin, because it sends the wrong message.

Here we have someone who is saying enjoy time with your new born, continue to feed her/him, eat well while you are feeding and don’t be in a hurry to make time for the gym. So why is she being asked to take inspiration from Victoria Beckham, who has been time and again criticized for being waif thin and giving women the wrong message?! Your thoughts?
