A thing of beauty…..

While in America Swami Ramteerth of India was passing through a city street and all of a sudden he stopped with his eyes glued to the face of a beautiful woman  standing on the terrace of her house. A passerby interrupted him asking ‘what is wrong with you’ to which he replied saying ‘I was wondering if this woman is that beautiful to force my attention to her, how beautiful might be the God who created a human like her’. The man who interrupted him felt terribly inspired and became his disciple. Beauty is of course a great divine factor and this is how Keats felt when he said ‘A thing of beauty is a joy for ever’.

  1. Some times I also think that I feel pleasure to see a scenery or some thing like that but why not think about who is behind all this creation.SUNDER HAI VIHANG SABHI SUNDER, MANAV TUM SABSE SUNDER TAM.


    1. Commented well. My thanks. ध्यान से देखा जाये तो सुमित्रानन्दन पन्त की इस कृति में ब्याकरण की दृष्टि से काब्यात्मक दोष है जिसे अत्यन्त सरलता पूर्वक दूर किया जा सकता था। आवश्यकता मात्र ‘से ‘ को ‘में ‘ में बदलने की थी जिसके बाद उद्घृत पंक्ति को इस प्रकार पढ़ा जा सकता था :
      “सुन्दर हैं विहंग सभी सुन्दर मानव तुम सब में सुन्दरतम “. जो वस्तु सर्वोत्तम है उसे सब से सर्वोत्तम कहने की आवश्यकता नहीं होती अरथातु किसी वास्तु को most best नहीं कह सकते।
