The “not-so-lucky” ugly ducklings … :|

Disclaimer: The views expressed in the post are not solely of the blogger. As always, many people and surroundings have played the most important role in the culmination of the ideas put forth here.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Do you know the tale of the ugly duckling?

To cut the long story short – it’s about a little beautiful swan that is hatched by a mother duck. The swan offspring thinks his ugly ‘coz he isn’t like the creatures around him. He leads a miserable life only to find out much later that he is not a duckling, but a swan!

Well… the creature finally got the identity that he had lost, rather never had!
What about the “not-so-lucky” ugly ducklings… all around?
People who never know what their worth is? People who are just born, who breathe till they are alive (?) and who die. But then who thinks about them?

Maybe it’s not all about hard work and efforts one puts in…that one gets returns for. There is certainly more to it. You might be a good person within, but how good are you when it comes to your external appearance? You think external appearance doesn’t mind, if yes, it’s high time you stop kidding with yourself. Come out of the make-belief world of yours! Face the fact - face it that you are ugly. Don’t know whether it is good or bad to be ugly because judging something, which is beyond one’s reach, seems a bit vague task, doesn’t it?

But then if life had been so just would you ever imagine how heaven must be like!!! It’s a confused world out there…it’s very, very blurred! The moment you believe looks don’t matter, you shall be faced with a situation, which shall prove it to you that it does matter a lot! It’s not what you think, how friendly you are, how helpful you are, or any other thing. Things boil down to the tangible part, sadly though!

First you sent me here
When I was not so keen to leave my Dear
Then you just ostracize me for no good reason
And they say You are with us no matter what time, what day, what season!

I do not completely agree on this. yes its necessary to have decent looks. But finally it depends on what lies behind these looks. The person, his values.And besides looks are what you may not possess all your life. One small accident and all looks are ruined or in majority cases come middle age and gone is the glow. But what stays with you is something which is far more solid than looks. You the human being, your good deeds is what the people cherish.

Dampner? this is among the best writeups you've.. written (odd grammar, i agree).
Loved the part about looks being real important. I fully agree with you there. Much as people don't like to agree with that, it makes perfect sense.
Nice to see someone make a fair acceptance to reality, much better than people either taking potshots or being blind to things.
Like I'd said sometime ago, a very taurean article. Waiting for more writeups along these lines...

the concept and idea is very good and the presentation is also fresh.The motive behind the article , looks, is much vast to discuss, and you have given both the angels, to be or not to be good looking. you are coming up with untouched emotions, and i suggest that u shud better knit them in a good storyline, as i think that people relates themselves much easy to a day-to-day story , so here u should also give some human touch other than swan , but anyway, that will just be icing on a very tasty cake.so keep writing.

"It is not our abilities that show what we truly are... it is our choices." -- Harry Potter "Chamber of secrets" If only people would spend time to look beneath the surface and find what really the person is. But how easy is it to dismiss a person based on looks alone ? And what does it say about the person who judges another based on looks.
