    Default Indian beauty queen accused of not looking Indian enough

    Row over blonde-haired, blue-eyed Miss India beauty contestant ... who 'doesn't look Indian enough'

    Her stunning looks won her a coveted title in New Zealand's Miss India contest.

    But Jacinta Lal, 21, was today at the centre of a huge row after she was accused of not looking Indian enough.

    The blue-eyed blonde, whose father is Fijian-Indian and mother a New Zealander, was booed by spectators when she won the Wellington leg of the MissIndiaNZ contest.



    Organisers later confirmed that there had been 'two or three' complaints about Miss Lal's eligibility.

    The row comes just days after the Indian government protested to New Zealand about alleged racial slurs by TV host Paul Henry.

    Miss Lal told the New Zealand Herald she had heard people say that she was not 'Indian-looking enough to win the pageant'.

    'But despite those small-minded people that made those comments, there were many Indians who encouraged me to enter.

    'So just because some narrow-minded people make a comment like that we can't assume that all Indians think the same way.

    'There is no difference between what Paul Henry is saying and what those select few Indians were saying. They are all wrong and should not say things like that...'



    Organiser Dharmesh Parikh said that he had also had complaints when Miss Lal took part in the MissIndiaNZ finals in Auckland in August and became one of two runners-up.



    'People said: "Oh my God look at this blonde girl coming to Miss IndiaNZ, what is she doing here?," he said.

    'Whoever these people are, they are a very small part of it.

    'This event is called Miss IndiaNZ, with an N-Z, and I strongly emphasise that this event is not an Indian event, it is a Kiwi-Indian event, so you must have New Zealand residency, New Zealand citizenship and you must have some sort of Indian background.'

    'It is a little bit sad, but it is unfortunate for Jacinta as well because she should be accepted into this Indian world as well because she is a beautiful Indian girl.'

    Sounds like racism to me.

    "So just because some narrow-minded people make a comment like that we can't assume that all Indians think the same way."

    Well enough of them do and it's stupid to pretend like we have no idea why. So let's cut them a break. And how about we cut whites a break for liking whites and so on?

    She looks bottle-blonde though. The roots are dark.

    Perhaps if she didnt dye her hair, she wouldnt have had these comments in the first place.
    But considering shes only half-Indian her white-features stand out more.

    well, does this miss Italy look Italian?
    Her name is neither Italian (Denny Mendez) but she won an edition of Miss Italia. Comments were made becouse some people thought that Miss Italia rapresents the beauty of all the women living in Italy, so also a not-Italian living in Italy could be voted; but most think that miss Italia rapresents the Italian beauty, so, it doesn't care if she's brunette, blonde or redhead, but she must be at least European-looking and Italian.
    I go for the second and agree with Indians who complain.
    Anyway India has many racial complexes, fruit of the colonial time. It is very common to see Indian women with dyed hair and who use lighting cream.

    That's some Marxist bullshit right there. Someone with that much Negro influence can never represent what it means to be Italian from an aesthetic point of view. If she is also an "Italian beauty," then the phrase "Italian beauty" is a near meaningless one that merely pinpoints someone's geographical location. Big whoop. You might as well say that chopsticks can be European if some Euro chief thought up a dish that used chopsticks to eat the meal and that forks can be East Asian if a Chinaman did something similar. So stupid.

    Although this thread had been 8 years I wanna say it's not one bit racist or narrow minded.

    She is half Indian but her face 0% Indian, she doesn't even look like Anglo-Indian (generally with significant south Asian influence ) everyone would simply guess her for a European, White American or a White Australian. What's the point of having her represent Indians ? Also people might have the false perception that Indian beauty are inferior to European.
