What is Beauty?


So what is beauty?
And who is it for?
The Beholder or the Object of Admiration?
Or The Creator?
And who is accountable for the consequences of beauty?

Thus I ponder, as I lie here now,
In the final moments of my existence,
Plucked from my natural environment
By an ardent admirer attracted by my countenance.

What is beauty?
Who is it for..?


– From The Book of Dreams, Sanjay Mukherjee
