while we are all mourning the untimely demise of Sridevi, it is important to remember why this may have happened to her.  society demanded that she stay slimmer/look younger than a 40 year old, 50 year old and  plus 50 woman needs to be--hence, the continuous surgeries.  

when i met her about 5 years ago, she was beautiful but a sad version of that self that we loved so much in a movie like Chandni.  What a lot of pressure to keep her weight down, to make sure that her face had no wrinkle lines....continuous clinic visits in Southern California.   

as a friend of mine wrote this morning...do we need a #metoo movement in fashion, #notsize0?  Milan has already implemented this but these patriarchical implants were in her head -- the husband, who claimed to love her so much should have intervened, did he love the way she looked as his arm candy more than he loved her?  She herself did not trust in her own beauty -- she was a clothes horse for whoever would care to dress her. 

What i conclude is such a lack of love for oneself that one's own lips don't suffice, one's own face is not good enough, one's flesh and blood have to be sucked out of her so that she can wear the best of couture.  that is the sadness of a life that could have been lived so much better not just for her but for her daughters.”
