What does Real beauty means to ME.

Ever passed with my friends on street and when a good looking girl passes by.. I almost receive comments from my friends..  "She is beautiful. What say?" My strange response goes like this " it seems so, but i am not sure"

Physical beauty do matters and has impact on almost everyone but it is not everything though.

I can bet on this that you would have ever met a guy/girl and at your first instance/sight you might have made in your mind that he/she is not beautiful or ugly or has dark complexion or is little short or so. But when you really interacted with them regularly and you become friend then somewhere at later point of time the same person appears to be beautiful. Isn't it?

A Beautiful guy/girl at first instance make look ordinary at first look but can become the most beautiful person on earth after knowing him/her or the other way a beautiful guy/girl at first instance may appear ordinary after some interactions.

Someone asked me "What does Real Beauty means to you?"

Well. You really can't make a generic definition of real beauty as it varies from individual to individual.

For me real beauty is sum of Inner and External Beauty, and the individual to individual change in definition of real beauty is nothing but the weightage an individual gives to inner beauty over external beauty or vice-a-versa.

For some Katrina Kaif or any other actress may be the most beautiful girl and for many the one whom he loves appears to be the most beautiful girl on earth.

Ok so what is internal beauty according to you?

Inner Beauty is something which can't be seen. You have to feel it.
It's how she reacts to the things, I mean her attitude. The level of interest she shows in each and everything.  The details she tries to find out in things. The caring nature which she shows to me and to rest of the world. Inner beauty is intelligence, understanding, caring and positive attitude towards life.

Few girls look absolute beauty but they are internally ugly, I do not consider them as beauty.

Nice. Then What is External Beauty according to you?

(Beauty is in the eye of Beholder. For some this pic is semi nude for some this pic leaves a deep message)

External beauty is how you appear to the world. How pleasing you are to the eye's of the people. Its your looks, dress code and the way you walk and talk.

External beauty can be easily polished but internal beauty has to be gained day by day by hardships and dedications.

I always believe "beauty is in the eye of the beholder".

For some the cup is half filled for others it is half empty. It's the way you look at. A girl may look descent and beautiful in classical indian attire like saree and similarly in western outfits. But if you have negative attitude towards western life style you may consider her indecent and at times vulgar.

So a real beauty is Intelligent, empowered, knows how to react to the things, good at heart. 

Also Beauty is not limited to human being's only. It can be Nature, monuments, atmosphere or any thing around.

A butterfly sitting on flower is beautiful. Snowfall is beautiful. Mountain fall is beautiful. Taj-Mahal is beautiful and so on.
