At 79, Asha Parekh graced a magazine cover and Twitterati is in awe

We all know how unfortunate beauty standards can be. Mostly because instead of liberating and empowering people, they can often act as restraints, labels, or limits. But at the same time, we are thankfully in a time where more and more people are helping to break those norms.

Ageism is one of the beauty standards that we observe today. The prejudice that likes to tell people that their value and beauty lies in the fleeting years of their youth. Ageism has been most prevalent in the film industry and it has weighed more heavily on women than men, TBH.

But a recent magazine cover featuring the gorgeous and graceful 79-year-old Asha Parekh definitely proves that all stereotypes are wrong.
