Here's an all new FAIL to all the education and effort in Indian betterment out there. Vaseline's come up with a Facebook feature for you to become fair. This is aimed at men.

Basically the way the feature works is you take your profile picture and make it two or three tones fairer. And then you realize how pretty you look and run out of your house and thank the Vaseline gods for showing you a better way of life. And of course, the spokesmodel for this venture is Shahid Kapoor, basically insinuating that your favourite Bollywood actor will only think you're decent looking enough for him if you're white enough.

Good one! I know that the news is supposed to be objective but has anyone 'reported' this application to Facebook yet? Or have they begun the Vaseline application?
