Feelings of a beauty

16 Feb

At times u feel bad about things and at time u feel good.  Last weekend was an opportunity for me to visit Taj Mahal once again. And this time i was alone among a group of thirty hellites. Just before the much hyped valentines day. What an occasion , what a place and what a feeling !!

Somewhere i have read that God loves beauty. The beautiful rain in the morning with sweet chill made me happy again and i felt connected and blessed.

But is there some difference in the very definition of beauty in our eyes and in that of God’s??

Perhaps God has created a beautiful picture of this world which is not so beautiful for me or may be i have to play the role of a dull and dark colour which does not attract any attention to the beholder.

I wish if i could accept myself as a marginalized and unsparkling speck. I wish i could see that larger frame of colours and not just my dull existance.

But Taj Mahal told me a story of loneliness. A beautiful and majestic monument associated with eternal love but itself a loner. It witnesses thousands of hearts beating for their partners and taking vows for life. What a mute spectator and misery!

O great Taj!  Perhaps I can really feel how you feel.
