What not is Beautiful in this Beautiful World!?

Have you ever tried to recall the moment you cried for first in this big world, laying in your mom’s lap? Wasn’t her tear drops were the Most Beautiful thing you had ever seen (if you remember) or you would have to see ever?

The pride on your father’s face looking blank at a ‘newborn you’, overwhelmed with emotions or probably exhausted with the emotions. Wasn’t it the best sight of the beautiful world you had just stepped in?

I don’t remember those moments either, but giving mere a thought leaves me goose-fleshed! The life we are blessed with is full of surprises, happier and awful too. What’s common with all the surprises is the Beauty of Life that is bestowed on us.
Each and everything we knew, are in process of knowing, or have been destined to know, is beautiful! Sun setting in west is as marvelous as one rising in east the other morning; so are the beaches of Arabian Sea and ghats of Ganges. Serene, subtle and beautiful!
Sometimes when a day starts on wrong note, you start with a frown on your face from home; haven’t you ever met a little kid en route, whose million-dollar smile compels you to forget whatever bad has just happened and rejuvenates your soul from within? That’s the beauty of a mere smile….

Who’s the one who hasn’t experienced the glory of innocent love? Being called as the best amongst the folks by the beloved; sweetest girl of the class or the smartest boy of the group…hasn’t it ever struck the best chord of your heart? Haven’t you ever felt how an ordinary-girl next door transforms into the most beautiful girl you have ever seen in the world, when you fell for her? Loveable is the beauty of love! Some become poet, some fail everywhere and some strives for the greatest heights…just for an emotion they can never define, but call it Love! Isn’t it the most beautiful emotion that spreads from a mother to her child, a father to his pride, girl to his man, guy to his lady and so on…so forth…
There are countless lists of countless things that have their own kind of charm. Be it a ghat of Sahayadris or snow laden tops of Himalayas; the death valleys of California or the lively prairies of North Americas; beautiful birds or shy hippos; beauty pageants or rural women…as far as one can see…beauty is what one can actually feel! Pity for those who have a vision for the darkness, haven’t you ever noticed the beauty of dark night when moon is clothed with a starry gown?

I am not a poet, but even if I would have been, it’s impossible to describe the Beauty of this Beautiful World in words… We don’t need to be someone to cherish it, just be ourselves, the innocent self to live it…
From an old post…
Beauty is in the eyes,the way you see, is the way it is. They say
My heart sees more than my eyes,let me be blind. I feel
Those who really feel that Beauty is everywhere and we are blessed to have eyes, may spare a few more minutes watching this video....
