Mirror, mirror

January 23, 2014 1 comment

Look in the mirror. Does the person you see match the person you feel like on the inside? How much stock do you put in appearances?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us MIRRORED.

Mirror, mirror on the wall – who is the fairest of them all? The obsession for beauty and good looks goes all the way to fairy tales of Snow White & Cinderella.

We are looking for a reflection, a confirmation from someone that we look good. This gives us that much-required ego boost to make us feel wanted, to give us a fan-following.

The cosmetic industry thrives on this fad. Cosmetics, perfumes and surgery can change the shape and features to make you look like a barbie doll or a model. Actors, models and Miss World pageants are all responsible for all the glitz and glamour of this industry.

But the sad fact is that it is not cosmetic surgery that the people of today need but an inner surgery – a reflection into our behaviour, our attitude and our values in life.

Our character, our values and beliefs and our actions are in essence the beautythat should shine forth. They project our charisma, a rare beauty, a gem that needs no polishing. When our heart is pure then we do not need a mirror to see any reflection. Our face, our gestures, our words and our actions will be synchronised with our thoughts and the world will see an integrated personality of true beauty!

Reflection

March 22, 2013 Leave a comment

Pompous and  grandiose
They claim to know all
Obnoxious and disparaging
They belittle you

Dishing out plans for you
Charting life’s course for you
An army of consultants
With no dearth of advice

Looking for perfection
Cloning all to their image
They build an army
Of sycophants

They build tall empires
And gleaming towers
And count their success
In dollars and cents

Freckles and frowns
Are all they can count
As they look at their reflection
Of a life gone by
