Last week, 19-year-old Singapore-based student Tricia Ferdinandt wrote this long thread about being South Indian.

Ferdinandt says, “Well, personally I feel that anything desi is North Indian and Pakistani (light-skin oriented). In the South Asian beauty accounts I always see, the ones with fair skin and eurocentric features are being featured and I was tired of that. I wanted it to be a hashtag where people can feel proud to be South Indians no matter what shape, size, skin tone, state etc.”

As a reaction to the hashtag #brownszn (Brown Season) which she believed focused mostly on North Indian beauty, she started this one.

“I then realised how I have never actually seen a hashtag or space that celebrated the diversity and beauty of South Indian people so I wanted to pioneer in that,” she told BuzzFeed.

The result has been South Indians from around the world tweeting pictures of themselves to showcase their pride.

Ferdinandt, who is Malayalee-Chinese on her dad’s side and North Indian-Tamil on her mom’s side, said, “I hate that when someone thinks of India or Indian movies, they think of actors with light skin and actresses with eurocentric features. We all have such diverse and unique features.”

“It chokes me up because they tell me how the hashtag means so much to them and how it has made them appreciate their culture,” she added.
