Everything has a beauty all we need a little humble heart to see it.
Real beauty is wholesome and eternal. You might wrinkle someday but real beauty will never fade. The beauty that comes with scars accepted strongly and stories reflecting it. It's much more than just a combination of physical attributes. I find beauty when it is pure. Being an artist, I’m very naturally attracted to beauty in any form. And perhaps when the beauty is real it simply touches the heart cord with ease. The moment is fearless, fresh and flawless.

Defining the real beauty is difficult, since it is unique for each one of us.
I'm here not at all pointing finger towards the physical attributes. I believe physical features are genetic and needless to say you made no contribution of you in your looks. But latter on how you carry yourself on the edges of life is where the real beauty secretes lies. Though real beauty is intricate subject of matter but it deals with reality integral.

Indeed, “the beauty truly is in the eyes of the beholder” but no wonder it’s you who reflect those traits that captures the heart.

I have a sweet friend who have quite an average looks. When she talks, honestly to me often sounds silly. She is someone who is often hidden in her jokes and her long curly locks. Most of the time we don't take her seriously. But she dance well. In fact whenever she is on the stage, I identify her as a complete different woman. When she brings her hand on her waist, with a slight twist of her neck, her eyes gets glitters making a standard sleek pose of dance in front of audience. I see her as a confident and a strong person. I have no idea what goes through her mind when she is dancing or when she is simply on stage...but I see radiance in her grace. It’s when I cannot stop praising her.

...I can't believe,
l discovered the secret of real beauty is oxygen..
Often I wonder what makes her look so gorgeous when she is on stage. Of course I won’t give credits to lights and make-up layers she puts on her face or fake long eye-lashes. It is definitely something else. May be its, the dance.

Dancing is quite a physical activity and lots of muscles are in use with a sound synchrony of dance-steps, music, emotions, facial expression etc. Definitely lots of air, oxygen is used, rush of blood, the energy, the enthusiasm in act brings that spark.

And heart must be pumping hard, so more oxygen supply to the body. So is the magic of real beauty Oxygen?!

Goodness! I can’t believe, I discovered the secret of real beauty is Oxygen!
One fine day we were sitting as usual, chatting on silly stuffs. Suddenly, I told her that I adore her when she dances. She looks so beautiful while dancing. And surprisingly the moment I told her about dancing, she elatedly jumped off her seat and started talking more about other dance forms she likes and instantly she shared her knowledge about her interest, the dancing and dance-songs! I could see the brightness in her eyes.

Interestingly I had never noticed her so joyous!

Oh! Bling! Bingo! Now I know it all. It wasn't just the rush of oxygen in the blood-vessels that brought radiance on her face. It was all about dancing that blaze her up in enthusiasm. It’s about her passion. Her passion of dancing pulls the best out of her, almost the 100percent of her when she is on stage and dancing. Somewhere I realised and thought so far she being a timid, silly girl, her instincts of passion brought her intellectual pursuits on stage. May be all this in wholesome reflected the real beauty in her. The real beauty is when she was simply happy and content in what she is ardent about.

Your real beauty could lie in music, literature and art or sports.

I perceive now, may be physical features could be the first factors to count the beauty on scale but the real beauty is much deeper in parameters to feel. Certainly a good-looking person, well dressed, hair neatly done, glowing skin would capture the attention. But how long that attention will stay?! I know the moment that person opens the mouth; my jaws will touch the ground if I see the dumbness of that person. There has to be something more than just a great finesse and panache in communication. There should be a substance in the talks we make or the interests must extend to continue the movement of mesmerizing moment. There has to be a confidence reflecting back into me looking into their eyes that she is self-sufficient to excel into a topsy-turvy world. Oh! Dear she's not just a pretty face! Physical beauty isn’t a bad thing but real beauty just adds few more golden stars in the status.

I have seen and met many beautiful* people (physical*) and nothing beats the beauty of the woman working in the farms. She wears no blinking clothes, have no wild knowledge of brands, neither she worry about fashion nor know much about beauty-parlors, posses absolutely no makeup, just naturally tanned skin, rough hands and cracked feet.

She does her domestic household, works hard on farms, does craft works, weaves clothes in between, and takes care of the cattle and family.

No matter how much her rough hand is, she works with those hands honestly. Her cracked feet are sincerely going miles to get water and her tanned skin still has radiance. The radiance is in her the simplicity of her living that reflects her real beauty.

My other very sweet friend has a severe scare on her hand when accidentally she fell down trying to save a neighbouring kid endangered on the traffic-streets. I bow to her bold-heroic deed and ever since than her strength have reflected her beauty as a person. That what has been her identity she is defined with.

We all are unique, could be thin or plum, fair or dark, with curly hair or straightened hair...nothing should matters, until and unless you are healthy. Physical attributes should not hinder your elementary happiness. It's your true happiness that reflects the real beauty in you! Then why be apologetic of looks!

...the real beauty codes is a key to bliss and confidence.. she can attain..
Real beauty is the combination of codes and each base is exclusive for an individual woman.
It is important for the woman to identify the code and nurture in her.
How one can find?
Is that easy to carry on the quest for beauty codes?
Answer is Yes!
Because that code is the key to bliss and confidence she can attain!

Real beauty does not need to make efforts to get noticed. You just know when it’s there and around, aspiring and inspiring everyone around conquering attention effortlessly.

  • If Kiran Bedi was not that challenging and acting courageously in her job, she could have lost the zeal in life. She would not have been so inspiring to steer a revolution.
  • Only if Mother Teresa was not serving the needy and compassionately helping, she would not have been so stimulating. She gave her life whole new meaning and that what defines her real moments in life.
  • Or take Lata Mageshkar! If she had not dedicated her life in singing, she would not have been so praised for the passion perceived.
  • And P.T.Usha, being from the middle class family who choose the unconventional path on tracks running and capturing her dreams...the beauty lies in the swift approach acclamation.
  • And Sonia Gandhi who has been always so firm and focused with her vision and thought-process, marks her name in the list of the top world women as the most influential woman. I believe the real beauty lies in her sensitivity she shows in each move of every phase of her life.

Though, I know real beauty seeks attention effortlessly...a lots of efforts and hard-work is dealt in bringing out that polished pure beauty. Such beauty charms have scars and have heartfelt chivalrous stories quite motivating. Yet they perceive flawless beauty in their persona beyond the boundaries and barriers of any kind.

In today's scenario when people are picky about everything in life, there are women who blossom to touch new heights in life and choose to explore the unexplored for the purpose of life to make it worthy. There conviction in their aim of life, the real beauty lies. Women fighting all odds with a smile on her face are the true beauty to get inspired from heart-touching moments of life quite gasp-provoking to applaud.

...ordinary women had scars and struggle in life but sure had immense power to heal, turning them into phenomenal souls after churning..

For me is my grand-mother is magnificent woman, who despite not having good literacy made sure her kids were well educated. She sent them to best school and colleges. If she had not fought back her struggle being strong-minded then I would not have seen my glorified future today.

My mom, like any other woman had aspirations like any other mother to serve and give the best to her child. At times when she was let down by relatives and other people forcing her to have two or more kids, she decided to have one child as a daughter, not bothering about what world says. That’s phenomenal for her vision and will-power against the strict social norms!

Since these ordinary women had scars and tough struggle in their life but sure they had immense power to heal which prepared them as phenomenal souls in the contest of life winning and spreading happiness as gift-hampers.

You can fake and fool people ones, twice, thrice but not all the time and every time and everybody same time. A good body language is a skill one can learn through different courses but to show the warmth in your gestures comes from inside and can't be moderately feed, well that's the beauty one attains is real.
They have such tremendous warmth in their presence to influence and infuse the beauty around everyone while creating hope and harmony. She should be solitude solitaire in her own way yet being a leader should bring change in other’s life too for betterment and steer at times of crises.

Dove Real Beauty on Yahoo! India
In the real world of today, where everyone wants to be a clone of someone beautiful and wishes to look attractive following the same dress-sense or getting a same hair-style and going for physical perfect rectification through surgeries or other medicated methods.

For me the real beauty lies in imperfection, when she is strong enough to accept the flaws and scars as the perfect part of life and still moving to move and motivates the world with their perception, lays real beauty of an individual.

The magic is not in batting-eye-lashes but the overall wholesome looks and little kind gestures of poise and grace that brings smile on other’s face instantly is intrinsic real beauty!

Perhaps we don't choose our friends saying, ‘She have beautiful hair. I want to be her friend' or 'She got a curvy body, let’s be friends with her forever.' We are friends because we care. They are there when needed. We share a sweet connection together and that is real and ultimate.' We relate, respect and feel right together.
Yes! We bring the best, bold and beautiful within us with them. Remember that’s real beauty, we count on!

Real beauty is eternal and lives not on our looks!
Real beauty is reflected in our attitude, our actions!
Real beauty is the beautiful dreams shared for others and ourselves!The beautiful thought is the real beauty.

~ Please do not show-off your clothes but flaunt your sweet soul.
Stop worrying about face and wrinkles, simply steer up life.
Stop taking pain in adding numerous layers of make-up, arresting your expression.
Just make-up your mind...it's simple and easy!
Worry not about shape, sizes or numbers get a color-box to color your life!
You don't need a face-lift,You need to up-lift your spirits!
Beauty is just a business; real beauty is rainbow, full of true colors.
Forget about the figure, have some fun!
Stop spraying perfume unnecessarily, be sunshine!
Just remember.. more than being called as gorgeous, being identified as generous is worth!
A blessing is nothing else but an essence of real beauty.

~ I'm so sure, we all are blessed and well gifted with something special and sweet to serve the purpose of life with passion!

~ Keep the Spark ALive..
