I was at my son Neev’s school. A little American girl came to me and said ‘Neev’s mama you are beautiful’. I couldn’t stop my smile. I hugged her and said ‘Not as much as you’. All I know is suddenly I felt beautiful. A lot of people compliment us –friends, family, husbands, boy friends and colleagues, all the people who we know and matter. We get compliments at different places -parties, office, date, places and events which matter, where we have high stakes. But still some of the best compliments are the ones that you least expected or they are from someone your least expected. It is a special feeling when someone, mostly a stranger who has no selfish interest in making you happy, gives you a compliment. It simply feels genuine and honest. Many years back I got a similar compliment when I was doing a consumer group. As part of my job then, I had to meet consumers, young women and discuss with them about their idea of beauty. A woman then told me that ‘I want to be beautiful like you’. This again was this unexpected compliment that made me happy. It’s really not about whether you are beautiful or not it’s about what makes you feel beautiful and these are the moments that made me feel beautiful.
