Bald Beautiful Model Toshada Uma is Challenging All Societal Norms

Society defines beauty with restrict denotations. Someone who is tall, fair and has a perfect slim body is considered to be beautiful. Especially when it comes to women, beauty is associated with everything perfect, perfect size, and face. Aren’t we fed up with all stupid ads that support the idea of being “fair and pretty”? This is the time we should change our mentality and these stupid social norms that define perfect beauty.

What if we tell you that one Indian model is alone challenging all these social norms associated with beauty? We are talking about the “bald and beautiful” model, Toshada Uma who has taken the internet by storm for all the good reasons.

India based model, not only shuns the stereotypical idea of “beauty” but also challenges it by setting new norms or let say re-defining beauty in her own terms.

  • Toshada Uma is a 19 years old model who chose fashion industry in order to prove herself. She is making the world talk about her for all the good reasons. Her story is as interesting as she is. She is not a teenager who shot to fame overnight, she rather fought for herself and from herself in order to be someone who is not different but makes a difference in the society.

Toshada Uma

  • To start from the beginning, Toshada was only 9 when she was diagnosed with a rare condition called Alopecia. A medical condition in which a person starts losing all the hair. She was devasted at once when she started losing her hair.

Toshada Uma

  • A 10 years old girl, was getting bald and she had to deal with it. So, she did. She started losing her hair, she had bald patches all over her head. But even this did not stop her from living her dreams and making a career of her choice. Her medical condition could not stop her from focusing on her interests.

Toshada Uma

  • As she grew her medical condition grew with her, by the age of 15 she knew that it is now a part of her identity and she should embrace it. Instead of hiding her medical condition she decided to make it her asset. She decided to shave her head completely and teach the world to accept all the people similarly.

Toshada Uma

  • Toshada started gaining recognition, media, photographers started approaching her for being a model. Uma always had an inclination for fashion and modeling was the best things ever happened to her. She sure gave it some thought but then she asked a question to herself that she now wants everyone to ask. Why shouldn’t she be a model?

Toshada Uma

  • She totally embraced herself and started modeling. Other than modeling she started her blogging and reaching out to the world by social media. She started an online business called Altshop where anyone can have a piece of her style and fashion.

Toshada Uma

  • Well, Toshada already has fans all over the world, she is bald, 4.8 ft tall and ruling the fashion world on her own terms. She is making some major moves in order to jolt down the societal norms that stereotype the idea of “beauty”. It’s Uma who is telling the world that beauty cannot be denoted or connoted by specified features or shape or color. Every woman is beautiful and every woman should embrace herself with all their deformity, or medical condition or physical condition.

Toshada Uma

  • It’s the society or the world’s way to bully you by setting up grounded rules and types of beauty. By idealizing a female body as perfect in every form. And bullying is not right, bullying must be shunned.

Toshada Uma

We at Gudstory, salute the spirit of 19 years of Toshada Uma who stood up to tell the world and she is “bald and beautiful” and anyone who doesn’t find it beautiful should get their facts corrected. Be a fan and follow her on social media to support her. To connect to Toshada Uma click here.

Recently Kun Banega Crorepati was celebrating International Day of the girl child on October 11, where the co-host called two of the special guest namely, Manasi Joshi and Deepa Malik. Both of them are really very inspiring if you know their story. Also, Big B has celebrated his birthday on 11th October and has appraised both of them for their struggle and hard work they have put in to get there they wanted from the beginning. Manasi Joshi is a Para-badminton athlete and Deepa Malik is Paralympic medallist. Let’s know more about them.

Did you know that Manasi has won Rs. 25 lakh on the KBC? But her this achievement did not overshadow her hard work and determination that she followed to become a pro in Badminton like her father as she started playing badminton with her father at the age of 6. Over a month ago, Manasi had won the Para-Badminton World Championships which was a day before when PV Sindhu won the World Championships but still she did not get much attention among the people which Manasi has got.

Manasi’s real life is filled with lots of struggle. Fighting all odds, she managed to win the gold. Though she doesn’t have her left leg as she lost that in a truck accident. But she wasn’t disheartened even after happening this. She continued with her passion for Badminton and started rigorous training to become well trained. She used to practice and play along with a prosthetic leg. In 2014, she won a silver medal in her first national-level tournament. While in 2015, she has won gold and all because of her struggle and hard work.

Despite facing so many hardships in her life, she managed to struggle and achieved all that she always wanted. We all could imagine that playing with one natural leg is not easy at all. We must say athletes like her should be encouraged and praised for what they have achieved from her struggle. She should also be given equal importance like everyone gave to PV Sindhu as she also deserves to be in the limelight.

We must support and encourage them to get better ahead. We wish you all the best Manasi. May you get the best of all in the future.

Chinu Kala

In this article, today we will talk about a common person who is not a celebrity. But her hard work and dedication towards achieving success in her life have made her a hero in real life. Yes, we are talking about a very young, bold and beautiful lady who used to earn Rs. 20 a day has become a successful entrepreneur today. This is such an inspiration to all of us. The lady named, Chinu Kala who left her home in Mumbai with just Rs. 300 due to some family issues going on in her family to start a new life.

Chinu started her success story at the age of 15-

Chinu is an entrepreneur and former Mrs India finalist as well as a socialite. She started her story of success when she was just 15. She used to do door-to-door selling of knives and coasters to get Rs. 20 in a day. As she does not have any support from her family, so she tried a variety of jobs to manager her expenses for long eight years.

She says, “These initial years toughened me up and taught me that nothing comes easy in life. I slowly worked my way up the ladder.”

She started modelling in 2006 and launched Ruban’s Accessories

In 2006, Chinu began to do modelling and then she also participated in Gladrags Mrs India Pageant, 2008 after insisting by her friends. But after sometimes, she realised that modelling was not her cup of tea, so she left that. Then, she started her first venture, Fonte Corporate Solutions which was a merchandising start-up in 2008.

Through her business, she has learnt a lot of things by meeting consumer demands with products and services to meet their expectation. It was then she realises that there is a huge gap in the Indian jewellery industry. In 2014, she finally decided to close Fonte Corporate Solutions and founded Ruban’s Accessories which was in Phoenix Mall, Bengaluru. For some time, she struggled a lot in selling her jewellery directly to customers and her customer base started declining day-by-day.

Therefore, she decided to shut down all her offline stores and planned to start selling jewellery online through different platforms like Flipkart, Myntra, and Jabong to grow her customer base. Her brand now receives 1,000 orders online daily. Besides this, she also sells her jewellery to the US and UK through her own portal.

Ruban’s Team-

Her team consists of 20 employees in totality including five designers who make the designs. Chinu says, her business was making money since the day one so she was pretty confident of making more money through her business. In FY 2014-2015, Ruban’s has received a turnover of around Rs. 3.75 crores. The business has also been launched in the US through Amazon and is also planning to launch in the European market as well. While in 2016-17, they got the revenue of over 56 lakh and Rs. 7.5 crore revenue by the end of the year.

Future Plans

Ruban’s team is planning to work hard and achieve a mission of Rs. 150 crores by the year 2024. Chinu is also planning to add some more vendors across India to sell her jewellery and increase customers.
