“The Presumed Definition of Beauty”

Hey beautiful soul. 🙂 

 I had no plan on writing this post but I always think about this ‘Idea’ of beauty that we humans have. I mean, it is the most complicated things, well not only this but every concept that is associated to humans is complicated, I believe. The definition of beauty is quite vague if we think about it. There’s not definite meaning of what really beauty is. Is it abstract? or is it physical? Does it really exist? or is there no existence of it whatsoever..?

We all hold some kind of definition regarding this term – beauty. For some it could be fair skin, almond eyes, long blonde hair, fuller lips and for some it could be light toned skin, big eyes, small lips, pixie haircut and for some it could be brilliant mind, a sense of humour, loyalty etcetera. The point is, every person in this world has their own concept, imagination, visual of what beauty is and in what beauty lies.

I’m going to be honest, before writing this blog I actually went on Google and searched for the definition of beauty. According to Merriam Webster the definition of beauty is “the quality or aggregate of qualities in a person or thing that gives pleasure to the senses or pleasurably exalts the mind or spirit”

Basically it is something that is aesthetic to human mind so when we think about it, beauty doesn’t really have shapes or forms, it doesn’t lie in a person or thing, it doesn’t show a quality or physical trait. All it says is beauty is pleasing to human’s mind or soul. So then why is it that we look for beauty in person’s physical state and try to measure it on some scale provided by media or given by society. When beauty really has different definitions or more specifically no certain definition then on what basis we claim that we don’t find that person beautiful?

My point is, beauty is something that relates to aesthetic and any thing can be pleasurable and happiness to human’s mind. It is not limited to gender, age, race or any physical state. So, we should rather find pleasure in souls rather in shapes.

Hope I didn’t offend anyone. Please share your views, what do you think beauty is?

Sincerely,

One of the Blessed Ones. ❤

“Our Perceptions and The Reality”

Hey beautiful souls. 🙂

Hope everyone is doing good and if not, don’t worry it will get better no matter how impossible ‘better’ seems right now.

I have never actually limited my blog to any specific category. There are multiple issues and I know that people around the world are addressing them but I felt a need to discuss them in my blog also and before writing this blog I believe I need to give a disclaimer for any one who might find it offensive or insulting in one way or another because trust me I never intend to hurt or insult any one in any form.

I’m a student of literature and linguistics but I also study different courses regarding social sciences and by the end of every day I’m learning about so many things and trying to look at things, people, situations in so many ways that sometimes I doubt that how did I actually manage to live up till now without even considering these enormous concepts.

Either I’m studying linguistics or human rights, the thing that constantly bugs me is that how we all are same and yet how unique we all are, how we all see the same things and how we perceive them in different ways, how we all are right yet how wrong we are to each other. Out of all these observations I have learnt one thing that what we see, hear, understand, might not be the reality but what the reality holds is completely different from what we have been believing. We all hear the same sounds differently, we all see the same things from different angles. Sometimes it doesn’t mean that we all are wrong but sometimes it also doesn’t mean that we all right.

We all see things from the frame of reference that has been provided us by our own minds but that doesn’t change the fact that we all can commit mistakes while judging and observing things. It is a human nature to judge, to commit mistakes but it is also human nature to accept things the way they are, to accept that everyone has their own frame of reference and their reasons to believe, act, say things according to their own contextual reality. Because at the end we all are same and yet different in every single way.

Please share your views and contribute to this topic, it will be really appreciated.

Sincerely,

One of the Blessed Ones. ❤

“Made You Up”

“Wondering upon what to paint

With the canvas in my hands

I thought and thought of different ways

To show the love I’ve always had

I thought of shadows, I thought of light

I thought of colourful rainbows in the sky

Bringing the brush to the sheet

I held it for all I knew and let it paint

After some moments I recognized

All I could see was a silhouette of some kind

Maybe this was the moment for me to realize

You were nothing but the figment of my mind.”

P.S I know it was a lousy attempt at writing a poem but I really wanted to share it with everyone on my blog. Please share your views and suggest me how can I improve my writing skills. And please try not to be so harsh on me. 🙂

Sincerely,

A Wanderer’s Soul. ❤

“Rescuing a Damsel in Distress…”

Hey beautiful souls. 🙂

So, I don’t know if people are going to agree with what I’m about to say or they’re going to contradict me for it but I believe there are people out their who kind of already know this thing and somewhat believe in their hearts that it is true but still maybe need someone else to tell them about this thing.

I think one of the problems with some writers either of YA genre, NA genre or generally any genre is that they tend to bring a “saviour” in every novel with social issue that we have. I mean, it is okay if you are trying to make your novel more interesting or trying to get people who are interested in that sort of thing (trust me I’m not saying anything against these writers, I might be the biggest fan of these genres). I’m only saying that there are some social issues which cannot be solved by including a love interest in protagonist’s life.

You cannot just make a life of teen mom by introducing a boyfriend in her life and try to make it seem like everything is going to get perfect, nor you can show that a domestic violence can lessen its effects on some children just because the guy next door has charming smile and he promises to take her somewhere magical.

There are people out there dealing with some issues like bullying, domestic abuse, anxiety, and all they have got to look for solutions regarding their problems is these books. They start looking into them and think of it as a possibility that some other human being will come right into their lives and fix everything.

You can’t argue with saying that these people should know that these stories are fictional because we all know that when a person is desperate s/he looks for any sign that could possibly come in front of him/her even if it is in some fictional story. When people read these books they start to wait for their own “hero”. It could be a cute guy next door or a new boy in school or they might wait for a total stranger to meet them in a book store. But it is what set them to expect that they are only going to be saved by a boy or a girl. People in those times need to know that you don’t need a boy to save you because nothing gets perfect as time changes, things only get better. You can only make things better and even if you can’t, don’t relay on a prince charming to come rescue you because sometimes the people who are really close to us can also save us, they can be our parents or siblings but they also love you and will do anything to make you happy, just like you will do anything to make you happy.

I apologize to anyone who thinks that what I said is upsetting or untrue. I guess everyone needs to know that they don’t need another human being to save them rather they need to know that every one of us possesses so much power and strength within ourself that we are completely capable of doing anything on our own. .

“Once Upon A Time I Was Not A Reader…”

Hey beautiful souls. 🙂

So yes, there was a time in my life where I wasn’t a reader (or at least I thought I wasn’t).

You know how when we are young and we try to be cool and somehow we end up thinking that being a reader is not a cool thing to do… This is what happened to me and now that I think of it, it actually surprises me how much of an idiot I was to think that – no offence to anyone who doesn’t read, trust me I respect you but the thing is I don’t really respect myself for believing that 😛

This is how the story goes….

(Fun Fact: I’m an obsessive fan of Wizards of Waverly Place for like ever)

I used to watch Wizards of Waverly Place religiously (I still do) but back in the days I would watch same episode over and over again. In WOWP Alex Russo was shown as such a cool teenager she would wear these incredibly cute outfits and her hairstyle was so cute that I think every teenage girl would try to copy her, hell I wanted to be her. Alex Russo would always read a magazine more like look through the pages and pictures and she would always say that she didn’t like to read. This is where I started acting like “Oh reading is so ridiculous, who does that”. I know right such an Idiot I was. Now what I would actually do is, read these books or short stories every night before I sleep every single day but still I would pretend that I hated reading.

Then in the month of July, 2014 I realized that I had always been a reader it was only that I chose to be ignorant regarding this hobby of mine and this is how I embraced the soul of reader who was dwelling within me and I accepted to the world that yes I do read and I do love it to the core of my heart. (well it wasn’t really that dramatic I only told my sister to buy more books 😀 )

But that doesn’t mean that I don’t love Alex Russo still to this age. I love WOWP, I still watch it, I still pretend to be Alex but more like a reader version of her. 😉

So this is the story of how I realized I have a love of reading.

Share your stories of how you became a reader or realized that you had been a reader all your life.

Until the next time.

Sincerely,

A Reader. ❤

“An Update”

Hey beautiful souls. 🙂

Yes I know nobody reads this blog, I don’t post much then why am I even bothering to write an update, right?

Well the thing is as much as I would love to write a blog on regular basis, I hardly get time to come around doing it. I’m a student and it sometimes get really hard to juggle with studies and writing. Although writing makes me calm, it makes me feel as if I’m actually doing something so that’s why I always post things on my Instagram account because in that way people actually sometimes read whatever I write ( I know shocking right? :D)

But I really want to communicate with people around the world because people irl exhaust me to the point where I stop talking to any one in person. Communication really works in funny way. Here I am trying to communicate with people who don’t even know that my blog exists and live thousands of miles away from me and then there’s same ‘me’ who just don’t want any one to come up in person and actually make conversation with me.

So I guess the update was – yes I’m still alive and yes this blog is still deserted.

Until next time (whenever it would be)

Sincerely,

The Lost Wandering Soul ❤
