  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Il a été débattue pendant des années si la beauté est dans l'œil du spectateur ou de la beauté est dans le cœur du spectateur. Mais il est pas si bien apprécié que la beauté peut être totalement inutile sans son vrai connaisseur. Que monsieur Allama Iqbal a fait remarquer dans sa poésie: «Pour mille ans la fleur la plus rare et belle de narcisses se lamente sa cécité, Il est avec de grandes difficultés que l'un avec une vraie vision est nés dans le jardin.». Je pense aussi que soit la beauté ou de la créativité ou de génie atteint son véritable sens seulement après une rencontre avec son aficionado authentique, et ce qui arrive rarement facilement. Un connaisseur est donc absolument essentiel, à mon humble avis, l'existence de la beauté, la créativité et le génie dans notre monde. - Deo.
