coz its pretty...


beauty lies in the mystery of uncovering something that holds intrinsic depth and reaches a part of you that makes you believe in hope again.
in a world where beauty is seen as nothing more than outer appeal, its frustrating that people just choose to like something or someone 'coz its pretty.' yours truly is guilty of this too on certain occasions - i guess its growing up that teaches you that beauty lies somewhere between finding something amazing that makes you more of who you are. no, nazeer- not vetkoeks ;) although in ramadaan, that might constitute beauty to some who cannot tell the difference between vetkoeks and sweetmeats...as for Ash who would probably see those pink scarves as veils of beauty or biryani in all its oily glory...or maybe its found in Joe's emails and our hour long phone calls...or in my mommy's hugs...
what is beauty? i would say you can only find it in humility...in the absence of an ego which can really make someone beautiful look really ugly...its in sensitivity...to know the difference between the soft comfort of silence and tactless steel admissions of 'i told you so.' Beauty is natural...and all the make-up in the world will never do justice...its in a shy smile that lights up a room- that reveals someone's genuine feelings in a moment. a moment is all it takes to uncover something beautiful. and in true bollywood style, these moments are always filled with music and sha-rukh khan making eye contact with some girl whose hair is perfectly ironed and flying aroung lightly thanks to like 3 fans...is it? i dont believe that fireworks and violins constitute these moments of beauty...sometimes the absence of these things is even greater- when you can be silent and peaceful within yourself and know that serenity has been found.at last.

I think Robbie is beautiful:)
I find our 1 hour phone calls the highlight of my life; I never stop laughing with you :)
Beauty has always been a feeling to me. I don't look at people or choose friends for their good looks (unlike Oscar Wilde, hehe)...

Wait!!! I do have good-looking friends! I am like Oscar Wilde!(not gay, lol). Helloo, Qdee, you're one of them!:)I swear, it was a mistake...

Anyway, I agree with you, simplicity and humility make people glow from within, and silence accompanies some of the most beautiful moments of your life. Beauty can be seen in vetkoeks and fender dents (not to my father, though) or even in plastic lunchboxes.
when it comes to people, some still follow the 'he's fair therefore he's handsome' school of thought. PETER CROUCH is fair, people,...(duh, he's white, he can't help but be fair, but he's a good example of fairness not being a measure of beauty) :)

Recently for me, beauty lies in the way a person's face lights up when they see you, the genuine happy look. Q you have been looking very beautiful recently and you make me feel beautiful too (I need that because scarf is doing bad things for my confidence in my looks department) ...lol! oh is that why I hardly see you anymore! Am I not beautiful enough for you anymore?

:) LOve and kisses
