Mindy Lahir was always an alien, in her own right, living in the West where the typical Indian woman in her mind was haunting her life. She often felt out of place. The ideal Indian woman is one with a holistic value of the Indian culture, from her dressing to the makeup and daily routine.
The coming to birth of Mindy Kaling creation was a great relief to the self-identity of Lahir. It opened up her world to a more relevant environment. She was struggling to fit in the society trimming her hair with the uni-brown color.
Mindy did not bow to the pressure of the marriage culture in India. Marriage is not one thing to give a blind eye back home. It is the goddess of fortune. Instead, she begun the Mindy Kaling series at her prime age of 30s as a single lady and took it through her single-mother times.
Most of her youthful time, she dedicated it to the advocacy of women in health and fertility. Just like her creator, Lahir is tied to the love of the romantic movies, the pop culture, and occasional white man.
She derives a lot of admiration from her mentor who is an Indian-free woman above the traditional makeup and lifestyle; a free talker and a ready-witty woman.
Kaling creation is a representation of the revolutionalized Indian woman who stands out rightly tall for advocacy, a fighter against racial discrimination, and a voice for universal change. Mindy owes the other lots of gratitude for allowing her to shape her career and profession.
