    Re: The description of fairies in the Indian stories.

    It's not clear at all what you mean. Who are "the white girls"? What do you want us to check?

    Why did you write it? Is it part of a longer piece of writing?

    Please don't post any new questions until all your current ones have been dealt with.

    No, it is not a part of a longer piece of writting. I think I won't be posting questions for few days after these questions have been dealt with.

    By white girls I mean white girls. I want to say in Indian fairy stories that are meant for children that are told to them at bed time like usually children ask you to tell them stories. Most of the stories do have fairies in them so when they tell them these stories they give the description of the fairy as well who is the protagonist like there was a place there lived a fairy and they tell something like "she was very beautiful, she was very fair, she had red cheeks, blonde hair, blue eyes, so it is clearly a description of a white girl, Indian girls are not like this.
