The Reason Beauty Contest Needs To Be Abolished

Contest

The concept of life is a reality, thus, a woman’s creation is a symbol of crown, dignity, honour, and beauty. Women are therefore special. I believe the same way every woman see herself or feels. 

Worldwide, every year, young women are paraded on the podium to search for the most beautiful woman in the world. The question: “Is holding of yearly beauty contest necessary?” What is beauty? Is it the mind, from the heart or the face?

There are so many women physically disfigured, through some sort of illness or naturally born with deformity or handicap, that may feel somehow psychologically depressed or rejected in the society when they watch things like “Beauty Contests.” Besides ‘Beauty Contests’ lowers the confidence and self-esteem of many women facing obstacles in life.

The birth of modern technology and scientists have provided comfort for human beings, in different fields, including medical. Apart from incubators and other equipment that save lives, no doctor or scientist has been able to put breath in a dead man’s nostrils to bring him back to life. So why should a panel of judges sit down to classify one as beautiful and the other ugly? However a woman looks like, she needs respect and acceptance in the society.

In my own opinion “Beauty Contest” is meaningless. It should be abolished. The late Princess Diana was one of the prettiest women who ever lived, but according to British newspapers, she was a woman suffering in silence before her untimely death.

If beauty had played important role in her life and had given her all the happiness she was looking for, from her wayward husband, Prince Charles, she might be alive today. Because many hope to participate in such contests, they experience eating disorder, leading to anorexia.

In my opinion, a beauty contest is not necessary and needs to be abolished in our society.

Do You Ever Dream Of Playing A Role In A Movie?

film 2We all enjoy watching exciting movies and our favorite film stars, to lively up ourselves, as a source of entertainment, after an exhausting day from work or to create a happy union with families, especially at weekends.

We learn a lot from the movies we watch, as they play with our emotions. Sometimes we do cry, get frightened or laugh our hearts out on some films, since some of the films are very hilarious.

As we enjoy watching films or entertain ourselves, have you ever wished or considered to play a role in a film or be an actor? Days back in the early seventies, there was a columnist, “Nana Ama advices you,” in one of the leading Ghanaian newspapers.

That could be the first time I read my letter in a newspaper when Nana Ama gave me the advice of how to become a successful film actor after I enquired from her what steps to take to become a film actor.

I watched my favorite television films, ‘Bonanza, The Mod Squad, High Chaparral, Cisco and Pancho, The Sea Way, The Saint, Department S, The Sea Way, The Persuaders etc, without the opportunity to reach Hollywood.

However, one day my dreams were fulfilled locally, when my father, a journalist and a documentary film producer and director, working at the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation, offered me roles in two of his films, ‘Cocoa in Ghana and Backyard Industries,’ in the seventies. I was very happy indeed.

I believe that everyone has a talent or born with a talent. Some discover that talent early and others late. Unfortunately, some of these dreams can never be a reality, because there is no means, especially when you are born without a silver spoon in the mouth. But we can always contribute to shaping the life and pattern of people positively in the society. I am therefore happy to be a writer.

Tom Jones: Why Is He Getting DNA Test If He Has Black Ancestors?

Tom Jones is recovering in hospital after he fell ill and was forced to pull out of a concert in Monaco

Tom Jones has revealed that he wants to get his DNA tested to find out if he has any black ancestors, with the music legend admitting that he has “always wondered” if he is mixed race. The 75-year-old is keen to get the test done in the near future so that he can gain a better understanding of his heritage.

Speaking to Times magazine, the star explained: “A lot of people still think I’m black. When I first came to America, people who had heard me sing on the radio would be surprised that I was white when they saw me.  “Because of my hair, a lot of black people still tell me that I’m just passing as white.”

When Tom’s mother, Freda, who is of Welsh and English descent, gave birth to him doctors reportedly asked her if she had any “black blood” after she developed dark patches of skin following her labour.

Tom clarified: “When I was born, my mother came out in big dark patches all over her body.
“They [the doctors and midwives] asked if she had any black blood and she said she didn’t know. I’m going to get my DNA tested.

“I want to find out.”
Well, if the producers of ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ are listening, we think we may just have nabbed their first star of the next series…
