There is a famous saying in Hindi, “jo dikhta hai, wo bikta hai”, literally meaning, ‘good looks have great value’. In today’s era, its good looks and beauty that matters the most. Whether its college, office or some party, it has become highly important these days to look good. Many companies are there which recruit people purely on the basis of looks and not on talent. The reason is that many people assume that beauty and brains go together. However, the statement is indeed, incorrect.
Beauty and brains have no correlation. It is definitely not necessary that a person who is beautiful will have intelligence as well. There are many people who are somewhat ugly but are highly intelligent. The strongest example can be of Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, a renowned scientist and the former President of India. Though, he does not look good much, yet he is one of the most intelligent and highly respectable personalities of India.
However, it is also not necessary that beauty and brains can never go together. There are many people who are both beautiful and intelligent. But the point is ‘intelligence, talent and caliber never depend on beauty.’ The intellect and brilliance of a person depends on the individual person irrespective of the beauty of that person.
But, today, in every sphere of life beauty is always amalgamated with brains. At many places and at many times, beauty is even considered more important than intellect of a person which should not be done. Beauty is the external veil of a person which gets fade away with time. Therefore, rather than concentrating on this external beauty one should give importance to the inner beauty of a person. The inner talent and caliber are a part of this inner beauty which must be given recognition. Moreover, organizations are run successfully only on the basis of talent and not beauty. Also, the growth of a person happens on the basis of pure talent and caliber and not beauty.
In the conclusion, beauty and brains do not have any relation with each other. However, beauty and brains sometimes go together but that does not mean that a person without any beauty cannot have brains. Beauty and brains are independent of each other. But the immense importance that people give to beauty these days is highly unfair and should not be done. Ralph Waldo Emerson, a renowned American poet, says, “As we grow old, the beauty steals inwards.” The statement is certainly true. Thus, the importance should be given to brains and not beauty.
