Abhinav Mukund made a comeback to Team India last month, but that is not the reason why he is in the news today. Abhinav Mukund took it upon himself to make a strong statement about racism/ colour bias that goes on in the country, with a very powerful and emotional post on social media. The left-hander talks about the times he faced racial discrimination and colour bias during his teenage years. He has urged Indian citizens to take a stand against racial bias with this post on Twitter.

As soon as Abhinav Mukund sent this post out, there was a huge amount of support pouring in from Twitterati. Users on the social networking site praised Mukund for voicing his opinion.
Racial obsession of the worse kind. Far worse than the racial divide, which itself is despicable. Feels fury; no need for sorry for anyone.
