A thing of beauty before you is an only joy forever!Yes, you read the thread title correctly, and no need to remind me of the original version. While sitting in a beautiful palace, one need not think of Tajmahal. It would always be better and healthier mentally to enjoy the place where you are. True, any other place or Tajmahal would be more beautiful than the one you are visiting but why to ignore it? Enjoy the beauties and bounties of its surroundings.
Once a famous Baba was being interviewed by a young charming TV Anchor in a popular TV show. She asked him whom would he rate more beautiful between Sri Devi and Rekha. Baba simply said, "For me, you are more beautiful and charming and just sitting before me." Everyone smiled and clapped for the answer. "We often ignore the beauty before us and crave for those at distant places, it's the human tendency", he added.
Baba perfectly told in simple words what I intended to explain in the initial lines. In the same way, there may be so many good places of visit in our close proximity but we never put an effort to visit them but always think of far off places as the visit may not materialize immediately. So, be vocal to local always. Because A thing of beauty before you is an only joy forever!
