True Beauty is a State of Mind…

on February 5, 2012










“Flowers… are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world.”~ Ralph Waldo Emerson 

Can we Define Beauty?

The difference between Pretty and Beautiful is- Pretty is temporal-whereas Beautiful is Eternal.. Hence, Whomsoever who tries to define the term.. must first be reminded of the uber famous quote by Margaret Wolfe Hungerford.. “Beauty Lies in the Eyes of the Beholder”, I totally understand that all my readers must be thinking, we all know it.. So stop Blabbering Generalizations & tell us something new.. But My Idea while writing is exactly to focus on the generalized state, because we’ve all made the cardinal mistake of Self Doubt by asking ourselves or others.. “How am I looking today?” “OMG! Why did this Pimple have to crop up on my Face today?” “Why do I always have a Bad Hair day on my most imp. Romantic Date?”

 Am not saying all these questions are unreal & going overtly philanthropic by saying that these questions have no Meaning! Offcourse they do..! Looking & Feeling good is Very very important, but how can you look good when you don’t feel Good? While We can Feel Good when we don’t necessarily look good.. To Prove this, I’d like to iterate a simple situation which I think has occurred to us all, When we get caught in a heavy downpour, Our Hair is a Mess, Clothes wet & suddenly Our significant other shows up & says whilst playing with your Hair “Hey! You are Looking so Handsome/ Wow! You Look absolutely Beautiful” Doesn’t this compliment mean more to us, than the envious stare of acknowledgment from the one we dislike, or a wink from the corner of the eye resounding to a Wow from a Flirt..

If all of you agree, then why does this Perennially Voyeuristic streak amongst us exists which vows to try to impress insignificant people..? Good Looks or Beauty are part genetically transferred & more importantly God Gifted. We can always enhance it visually by Looking Chic, Afresh & Self Confident. ..  the Key Word is Enhance.

 We are all Born Beautiful, always remember that, and I Quote “Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.”~ Sophia Loren, Also Perceptual Beauty is different for one & all, For Some Beauty is the Face, Others – the Personality, For some the Attitude, Others- A Generous Heart, For some the Care, Others- A Pleasing Smile.

 One thing is Common that there is nothing Common in any Person’s outlook & approach towards Beauty. If we further deliberate, What makes a Picture truly Beautiful? Or in these Modern Day Social Networking based Profile shots? What truly makes it Beautiful.. I am no Saint so shall exemplify with my own Profile picture, it isn’t the Diesel Jeans, nor the Ferrari T Shirt, nor my Louis Vuitton belt nor does the Blackberry in my Hand. They are merely objects that Project of my Social status, but if my Profile shot looks Good to some of you its because of the Real Smile, A Candid moment captured on Camera, a sumtotal of the merry state of mind. Shopping for your favourite Brands, looking Metrosexual & to be given a Wonderful compliment can often be the Driving force but it is just that & no more.

We Men Dress in an Armani suit with a Slick Rohit Bal Shirt, Ferragmo Belt, Rolex watch & Bally shoes to look good, but does that really reflect our true Beauty? You, Gorgeous Women, wear YSL dress, Mac based Makeup, Jimmy Choo Shoes, LV Handbag, Dior Watch, Gucci Perfume & Prada waistbelt make you truly Beautiful? The High end brands are by no means my way to bask & showoff knowledge but merely iterate that these aspirational brands don’t guarantee you, a Beautiful you.

The Real Beauty in you can only be seen when you have a Sound Frame of Mind, Positive Outlook & A smile on your face that can brighten up the most Gloomy of Days! Pretty is something you’re born with. But beautiful, that’s an equal opportunity adjective. The Radiance, Aura & Real Beauty of any Living Person are always measured by  the above.. SO TRUE BEAUTY IS INDEED A STATE OF MIND.

 “People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.”~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross








“Some people, no matter how old they get, never lose their beauty – they merely move it from their faces into their hearts.”~ Martin Buxbaum
