7 Celebrities That Reclaimed The Mayun Yellow

Don't wait for someone's mayun to wear yellow


Owing to our desi culture and traditions, we often tend to limit certain colors to certain occasions. Wearing red only at your wedding (please don’t be the one wearing red at someone else’s wedding), green at a mehndi event or green and white on 14th August because hello, Independence Day.

And if we dare to wear these colors outside these so-called designated events, we are reminded by more than one person that they thought we were going to a function or celebrating our azaadi, only God knows what one means by that.

Among many such colors, one of these is yellow. The color is vibrant and bright but is often worn at a mayun. Most people shy away from wearing it outside the said function as they are afraid they might be called out for it but seems like that is changing. And we can’t be more glad.

Not only are women on the streets in the country seen wearing yellow but our female celebrities too are reclaiming the color. Wearing it on holidays, red carpet events, Eid or casual outings with friends, blessing us with one Instagram post at a time.

Here is a list of seven divas who wore yellow and owned it:

1. Aima Baig

2. Hareem Farooq

Let’s spread happiness in whatever way we can. Let’s help people however we can! There already are many spreading hate and terror, and it’s pretty easy to be evil and hateful, but let’s be a beacon of light in these dark times. And dont forget to say a prayer for our Muslim brothers and sisters in Kashmir, in Palestine, in Syria, in Norway, and not only Muslims but pray for the humanity! Pray for every life lost, pray for everyone to be safe, pray for everybody’s betterment, pray that may Allah give everyone the strength to deal with their losses and may Allah ease their pain. And let’s pray for the oppressors too that may Allah soften their hearts and show them the right path. Meri taraf se aap Sab ko bohat bohat eid Mubarak! ‎اللَّهُمَّ اِلهَ جِبْرَآئِيْلَ وَ مَيْكَائِيْلَ وَ اِسْرَافِيْلَ وَ اِلهَ اِبْرَاهِيْمَ وَاِسْمَعِيْلَ وَ اِسْحَقَ عَافِنِىْ وَ لَا تُسَلِّطَنَّ اَحَدٍ مِّنْ خَلْقِكَ عَلَىَّ بِشَئٍ لا طَاقَةَ لِىْبِه O Allah!  God of Jibraeil, Makaiil and Israfil, and the God of Ibrahim, and Ismail and Ishaq, Grant me peace and security, and do not let anyone of Your creatures overcome me, with anything which I have no power to forbear.
