What is your definition of beauty??

The question was asked to me, "What is beauty?" . The concept of Beauty has changed a lot for me through the years. Beauty isn't just the "eye candy" on my side. And It isn't the "fake and bake" nails, hair, brands... It isn't the diva or a stud on glossy cover of a magazine.. it isn't finest of the resorts at finest of the exotic places...It isn't the fancy must have condo.... It isn't the most expensive gadgets you play with, the whole day...

Beauty to me is...
A power dressed man kneeling down on a dusty trail to pacify a baby...
A friend with a pout just to make me smile..
A dream which makes me smile even whilst asleep..
Someone's genuine heartfelt smile.. 
 My father hugging me for no reason...
Father-daughter dance on a stupid ever track and at weirdest ever place.. 
Mother and son dancing with sweetest broadest grin....
Me dancing and jumping with glee like an infant..
Unconditional love....
Giving selflessly without any expectation of something in return..
Friends sitting on a bench oblivion of ice cream smears on their faces..
An online blink with a message you've been waiting for ...
Nature all around me .. those rain kissed trees
My pictures with my mom..
Few saved conversations.... few archives..
Hearing a song that moves me to tears reminding me of memories of mom, friend and few more..
Having family and friends their for me....
Parents sacrificing their important meetings for their child...
Unspoken feelings felt by your best friend and being emitted through their eyes...
Being pacified by people I love when I go angry....
Unspoken words and knowing what is being said...
Unexpressed feelings heard felt and reciprocated...
A hand held out even before i stumble..
Standing up for what I believe in..
Giving .. surrendering my self to people I confide in..
Listening and believing when someone says in earnest ever tone.."you are a beautiful person"
Gift of love and acceptance...
And walking with a contented smile even when pain beyond my endurance hits me.....
Beauty for me is... When I smile through my heart and soul!!!
I am on a constant search for these things...half achieved.. half midway... half yet to find!!!
 These are the things that hold beauty for me...
What's your definition of beautiful??

“You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
call to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting –
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.”
― Mary Oliver
i can only take this oppurtunity to dedicate these words of a grt writer mary oliver to a yet again a vivid writer.the necklace which u have made out of the words is amazing . lot have been said on beauty but the way u brought out the actual sense of beauty is what needs to be emphasized more.i m honoured to read these soothing words.keep writing, keep enlightening the people like us who in the garb of chasing the unknown have forgotten even the basics.tc

Every word you wrote is nice. Brought instant smile to my face as read every line. Proud that we were together in school. Still remember you self made instant stories in school during free time. Keeping poring your heart.

Wow...amazing !! So beautifully written.

Debaditya Haldar said...

My definition of beauty would be...anything that pleases the mind, and brings happiness to the soul.

It does not always have to be anything perfect...in fact, it is incompleteness that adds to beauty.
