What does it take to look pretty?
In the autumn of my last year in Lady Shriram College in Delhi, our English dramatics society chose to adapt for theatre the 1989 Oscar-nominated movie Steel Magnolias. It is a tragi-comic tale about a bunch of women in small town Louisiana. Much of the drama takes place in Truvy’s Beauty Parlour, where they all have come to get dolled up for a wedding. Truvy, the funny, gregarious lady who runs the parlour makes a comment, that has stayed with me since. “There’s no such thing as natural beauty," she drawls in her southern American accent, while putting on eye make-up for one of the women.
