Adding color.

I wanted the colors to be vibrant and typical of Indian cloth of the North. Also I wanted the color of her skin to be dark brown. Typically a lot of images of Indian women and those promoted in Bollywood are fair skinned. Fair skinned is superficially associated with beauty. I wanted to purposefully avoid this unintelligent notion of beauty and so my image of women will be various shades of brown.
