Glamour is subjective

Glamour is subjective

We have to agree that the idea of glamour is very subjective and differs from a person to person or society. What is considered glamorous in San Francisco might be considered offensive in India. Thus, it is very important to be culturally appropriate while being glamorous.

Varieties of short hair are in trend today and it definitely makes one look glamorous but stereotypical people are considering it as a rebellious attitude and look. Conventional schools till date encourages long, neatly tied hair for the students, as supposedly it depicts discipline. Tattoos are nothing but a permanent form of ‘mehendi’, but where Mehendi is considered culture tattoo becomes an unconstructive western influence. But tattoo and length of hair are ones personal choice of feeling glamorous within and outside and these should not be considered as points of judgment.  

I’m not only advocating glamour in its western forms, Indian wears like saris and bangles are utterly glamorous but only when one can carry it with style, panache and comfort. With the kind of hectic life, we lead today wearing a palazzo, trouser, shirts, loafers and sporting a short hair is very convenient and conscious glamorous choice ladies we make.

Our society should not hold cliché ideas of glamour and burden it on today’s youth as the standard definition. I think today glamour means to experiment and choose what fits you the best and to carry the same with confidence and respect to others.  As long as we look presentable and do not hurt any religious or social sentiments glamour should not be judged or stereotyped.
