Is beauty important?
"Alagu oralavuku iruntha pothum - gunam thaan mukiyam Arjuna"
"Kalyanam nalla thaan nadanthathu - aana enna ponnu thaan avalava vadiva (alagaa) illai"
These were the contradictory statements usually made by my family members for the past few years. The first statement is said whenever I say - that I should marry a pretty girl! The second statement is said whenever they go to a marriage ceremony and see a not-so-pretty bride standing next to a handsome bridegroom! I guess these statements are usually made in many homes today.
There are two girls in the interview. Both perform the same level in the interviews. Both have the same number of qualifications and ranks. Now, one looks absolutely beautiful. The other not! So whom would you choose as your ideal candidate?
If this question was asked to me - I would definitely say - the beautiful one! I guess the majority of the male population would!
So my questions are -
1) From Scene 2, is beauty really important to be successful in life? Is it an asset or a liability?
2) Why do people contradict themselves in Scene 1?
I would like to know your views on these.
