Fair and Lovely

Let’s get over the silly obsession
For beauty and a fair complexion.
To get a fair and lovely face
Here are some simple ways...
Banish all thoughts petty and mean
With a sensitive heart and mind clean.
As doubts and negativity go fleeing
Our face reflects a new human being.
As good thoughts and feelings spring,
They on our face mellowness bring,
That makes our appearance gentle,
That’s reflection of a glow mental.
The goodness of mind and heart
Plays a very important part
In making one fair and lovely
And giving a demeanour lively!
So throw away all those creams,
That sell unreal fairness dreams.
Let positive thoughts and feelings flow
To give the face a calm and serene glow!

Comment Thank you very, very much Ru, Kulbir and Dr. Mallick for your generous words of appreciation. These thoughts were my safety valve against a barrage of epithets that stuck with me since my school days of 'Blackie', 'Kali Madrasan' (studied in a Maharashtrian School at Nagpur) and of course 'Fatso'...!!! But my own sense of humour always made me laugh these comments off...As I used turn and ask the boys 'So, bloody what, man?"

Thanks Aparnaji for the most beautiful and apt pic! Loved it.
