    Very common in India and not surprising... this all ties in with their "abolished" caste system.

    It is very common in many places around the world.

    Their believe:

    Tanned = Arbeiter and Farmer
    White = City and Wealthy

    It is not a very healthy way of thinking, but who are we to oppose the idea.

    If people can tan, why not "de-tan".

    Skin whitening products are marketed and sold all over India, East Asia, the middle east, Africa, etc.

    Ironically they're side effect is not unlike tanning, premature wrinkling and the such.
