It was a much needed break for me to blog about something that I appreciate everyday! Beauty.
Beauty is what? A simple answer to that question is: Everything you feel beautiful is beauty. As oft quoted in conversations, “beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder”. Its all how we feel..
During my college, one day I was with a few of my classmates, savoring a hot “vada pav at the tapri” breakfast and saw a couple walking hand in hand. The boy was really handsome, but girl was not so. That’s when I remembered the quote “Agar dil laga gadhi se, toh pari kya cheez hai” (If heart is struck to a donkey, even an angel is nothing)” 😛
We were also taught by two professors who were married to each other, both of them from opposite ends of India, he is a dark dude and she is the snow white.
I am a firm believer of the inner beauty and my friends can vouch for that. It’s a feeling that you can see on the skin and beneath it in humans and animals (or should I include fur for animals? :P) and ever so awesome nature.
There are so many real beauties out there, in the form of a mother, as a wife, as a friend, a role model, a sister, a lover, every relation and emotion we share with many women is so beautiful. My father and mother worked together too hard to bring me and my sister up from total financial breakdown, which speaks volumes of their beautiful relationship with my family.
Dove and Yahoo! brings you all a wonderful platform called as the Real Beauty. It’s one place where I invite every women (yes, including the one who called me being a sexist) on this world to come and share their feelings on this wonderful platform. Those who joined in already have posted so many meaningful blog posts had have sought expert opinions, got inspired with the Women who brought in change in today’s society, soon to be launched Expert Chat et al.
And yes, am making sure my mom and sister too are participating and so will be many (girl)friends of mine 😉
To all those who believe in the inner beauty, here is a small poem. It’s the poem I wrote for my mom, who has been so beautiful to me…
In my heart, I can see,
How much lovely you have been,
I miss your care, and that lovely stare,
To me, how beautiful you have been,
You understand me,
You speak my mind,
You know everything,
And still you be kind,
You feel for the poor,
You feed them with love,
Happy that you could share,
See those smiles, so beautiful,
Of the kids on the streets you met,
Times you spent with me on beach,
Watching the amazing sunset,
When the rain makes a mess on the streets,
The mighty Sun creates a Rainbow,
Running from a city to another,
To your supernatural force, I take a big bow,
Among the moon and the sun,
The birds and flowers and hue,
I now know what is real beauty,
It is you mom, and what’s within you.
Thank you very much mom, for being the most beautiful person to me.
These thoughts I have put together are true, and I participating in a contest at IndiBlogger, What does real beauty mean to you? If you like my post, please consider voting for me.
Thanks for your comment on my blog, Hemal. I really appreciate your love for your mother. Those were beautiful lines indeed. Btw, why stop your mother or sis from wearing lipstick if they want to? 🙂
@Zephyr thank you very much mam for your comments 🙂
hehe, yep coz i personally dont like they wearing it. I am limiting them from doing it coz I think they look more beautiful without it.
Its a different matter that they rarely do it, leave occasions like a marriage.
My point is why wear it everyday! and without that, i think all women would just look more beautiful, dont you agree? 🙂
sweet and lovely!!!!
Thank you very much Neeraj!
why is it that the moms and the daughters r the most beautiful. beauty is love as u rightly said!
dude, coz Dads and sons are handsome.. 😛 lolz
yep dude, beauty is love…
Hey something is wrong with your feedburner. It is giving me some problem. Let me unsubscribe and subscribe again
Problem Sorted. I had my feed issue with some other application and hence had changed my Feedburner URL. And which I forgot to update within my blog Feedburner Plugin. Thanks a ton Avada for letting me know about this. 🙂
Heart touching lines…. awesome.
Thank you Jayendra for your comments.. its brings in a smile when my work touches hearts of people.. it really means a lot to me as a creative person..
Welcome to my blog 🙂
Every one appreciated the poem, let me acknowledge the poet 😀
As pure as a dove, as promising as a vow
This guy is an essence of love, to which every emotion would bow
His charm is charismatic, his calmness is picturesque
His silence showers thunder, his talks work wonders
His feel would make one surrender.
Possesses the ability to conquer the world
With the confidence in him to confound the odd
Leaves his mark with magic unspoken, untold
Even his command is so pleasing, that every worry seems easing
Carries the strength to handle the mind
Accepts the challenges to keep him over the tide
His presence can make you run miles
But he can make you fall just with his thin smile
Talk to him once, you will feel hes so tough
Be with him for some time, you will feel so above
Walk with him, he can take you in his stride
Be his best, you will feel so proud
So gentle, yet to profound
So quiet, yet so thoughtful
Soothing than the breeze of wind, innocent than the face of a kid
A friend, a best friend, a person to cherish, a feeling to caress
Have him around you and feel the HAppinessssssssssssssssss 🙂
