The Ugly Duckling

I think Google is GOD. Atleast for the people who say that internet is their religion. I use google atleast two times everyday, even if it is just for you know something as random as getting my self updated on the news that is happening around me.

The thing that is MOST amazing is that, whatever the occassion be, Google has just the right way to tell you about it. And, today thanks to their Homepage image, I got to know, that it is the 205th Birth Anniversary of Hans Christain Anderson...
And, I was instantantly transferred back into my child hood and into those fairy tales that always told about the damsel in distress, and the Prince Charming that would always come to her rescue.
Disney I feel has done a great job in animating and immortalizing so many of his characters, be it the Little Match Girl or Ariel- The Little Mermaid... whose adventures have always fascinated me... even now they do.

But amongst all his fairy tales, the one that I relate to the most is The Ugly Duckling... you know, just the little thing about how you being beautiful inside makes you beautiful outside. I always felt like the ugly little girl, who is not tall, nor shapely... nor like a girl. Actually, there are about million things that are wrong in me as per my mother...but, then, today stumbling upon the author of  The Ugly Duckling... gave me some lil bit of happiness.. a sense of hope, and above all gave me a lil extra push on the feel good factor about myself...

I feel like that Ugly Duckling, who is going to be a Swan some day... Life will happen, Soon.

Sakshi,

Read 4 pending posts now. LSD, thanks for mentioning me. What you wrote makes a lot of sense and I am sure if you give a unbiased thought you will find answers to your own questions. Good poem. You are turning out into a budding famous poetess. What Sania wants is her own affair, only thing is that after marriage she should follow norms of society and join her husband. You are a SWAN, don't you think otherwise.

Take care

Like they say..."beauty is in the eye of the beholder"
one man's sweet is other man's sour...
The ugly duckling is the prettiest by far..coz she is unaware of her worth n ready to be polished...
