When we imagine about real beauty, we draw pictures of stunning sirens reigning Bollywood or Hollywood. Their spotless skin, neatly carved features, and velvety hair are paragons of beauty for us.
But this way, don’t we get parochial in our thinking of defining beauty, when we limit our version of beauty only to flick females?
Oh! Yes the ramp roaming models and television stars also vie, in our mind, for the coveted tag called, beauty.
Is the word beauty confined only to looks? Can we enlarge the possible meanings of this word beyond the boundaries of flesh?
The real beauty lies in the behavior of a person. The attributes of compassion and commiseration make anyone more wanted in a life than other persons who are indifferent to the needs of others.
Mother Teresa was never in the league of Miss Universe or Miss World, even then the crown of beauty pageants feel dwarf before the puckers on the forehead of the grand lady. No beauty pageants get complete without the mention of her deeds by the participants in order to prove their commitment to the society. She touched the oozing wounds of lepers and adorned the eyes of them with glint of hope. She made the beauty of life palpable and thus let the world experience the meaning of real beauty that resides beneath the endeavors of a common person.
Real beauty is not only about gorgeous girls and funky ladies, it goes beyond them.
She is one of the victims of landmine in terrorism- hit Kashmir. She might go by any name but that is not important. The thing that is important is that she was 14 when she lost her both limbs in a landmine blast in the decade of 90s. She and her family were devastated. She needed help of her family members in performing the tasks related from defecation to ablution. With the indefatigable effort of her family and immovable grit of hers applied for years, today, she walks without help of anyone(and of course with the help of artificial limbs) and defines the real beauty of being happy in covering yards with her sheer determination and spunk.
Real beauty is not related only to smooth skin and healthy pigments, it encompasses more than them.
He belongs to upper echelons of society where being fashionable is more important than being human. In that society physical beauty counts a great deal. And when Gautam Singhania of Raymonds was diagnosed with Vitiligo, even his close friends advised him to remain in the confines of his house. (Even if, India is in the race of becoming a superpower, to be a white skin in the country of brown skin is still considered a stigma.) But he defied the reeking notion of society about Vitiligo affected people and today is one of the respected business barons of the country. He compelled society to acknowledge that real beauty is not on the skin but beneath it where a valiant heart beats.
Real beauty is not only about drooling over somebody but it is about respecting somebody from the bottom of our hearts.
She resides in the tribal backwaters of India. Early in the morning she wakes up and goes to the jungle to collect wood to cook food. Even under the simmering Sun, she toils in the field to eke out a living for her family. She doesn’t have luxury of any nutritious meals, she is emaciated and you don’t need an X-ray to count her bones. Even then, when her suckling child writhes and cries with hunger, she offers her bosom to her child even if there is no milk in it. She suffers the bites of the child but never drags her away from her bosom. She demonstrates the real beauty of being a mother, which is celestial and inimitable, even in the outright paucity of resources.
Real beauty is not slave of being blond or brunette. The real beauty emanates from being bold and brave.
Rani Lakshmi Bai was neither fair nor a flawless face, despite that there is hardly anyone on the face of the earth that can match the beauty of her personality. She was fearless and fearsome at the same time; she was motherly and macabre at the same time. She exhibited that real beauty is in being courageous and holding your ground, even if you are beleaguered by your enemies and you know that defeat is certain for you.
Real beauty is everywhere in this world and not restricted only to curvaceous bodies and silky skin. Real beauty is in the rough hands of a laborer that crushes stone with hammer to douse hunger, it is in the dexterous hands of a doctor who weaves rhythm of life in ailing bodies during every operation, it is in the parents’ dream, for their children, of a fabulous future, and it is in the smiles of innocent kids that know no discrimination of cast, creed, race, and gender.
