  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    It's been debated for years whether Beauty is in the eye of the beholder or Beauty is in the heart of the beholder. Yet it's not so well appreciated that Beauty can be totally worthless without her true appreciator. As Sir Allama Iqbal pointed out in his poetry: "For a thousand years the most beautiful and rare flower of Narcissus (or Nargis) laments her blindness. It's with great difficulties that the one with true vision is ever born in the garden." I also believe that either Beauty or Creativity or Genius attains her true meaning only after meeting with her authentic aficionado, her true appreciator; and that seldom happens easily. A connoisseur is therefore absolutely critical, IMHO, for the existence of Beauty, Creativity and Genius in our world.
