Adam & Eve

So.. my internship's going pretty well... learning quite a few things... at the moment I'm at work and pretty jobless for the time being(no it does not happen everyday!! I have a lottt of work on regular days!)... so here's another random thought I had in the train the other day (yes I traveled by Indian Local Train after ages and yes it was scary!!)

A few days back I was watching one of my favorite movies - Before Sunset (Anyone who hasn't seen this.. MUST WATCH NOW!! ) Its a story of two strangers in a foreign land exploring the place and enjoying the day with each other and talking about a million topics all of which I can talk about for hours !!

One of the topics in the movie included something about all of us being a part of 1 single soul... something I have been thinking about in periodic philosophical moments. So the other day while I was in the train.. my brain had nothing better to do.. I ended up noticing everybody in my compartment -eyes, nose, smile, face structure (some may have even thought I was gay 'coz I was staring so much..:S ) Anyway.. Its so weird how you can classify the face types - big nose, small nose, square face, round face, big eyes, hardly any eyes, big lips, small lips etc and then theres the 'medium'. There is beautiful and theres ugly and theres 'hmm..common' (again this depends on different perspectives)

So thats when I remembered the movie and thought well maybe all of us are a million pieces of one special soul... Each of us resemble someone or the other.. My eyes may look like someone else's , my lips may resemble someone else... So in some way or the other all of us are somehow connected...

Thats when this theory struck me!!
God divided 1 soul into two parts... Adam and Eve...

Eve was the pretty damsel, perfect features, perfect body, perfect hair, everything "perfect and pretty"

Whereas Adam was the ugly guy - probably fat, with bulgy eyes, rashes, broken or twisted teeth, with a big beard and everything ugly

They fell in love... coz they didn't have a choice (!!) and had kids - the pretty ones, the ugly ones and the "middle" ones... and probably the world expanded thus.
This again raises another pile of philosophical questions.. who was the good and who was the evil? How did all of that start?? Was Eve the snobbish evil bitch and Adam the poor fat aimless guy? Or was Adam the gigantic evil man who ruled over his petite innocent princess? :S

Why is pretty and ugly predefined ? Who decides this? Why can't tall and fat be the in thing? Why can't 'black' be the hottest skin color on everyone's list? Whats with the pretty/ugly/normal discrimination?

Hmm... so that was the pondering brain of a jobless woman who should now really shut up and get back to work... so until next time!!



P.s- Before Sunrise has a sequel before sunset... which they shot with the same cast literally after 10 years.. also really awesome!

I think its also matter of time size zero is considered to be beautiful... In 60s the hindi cinema actresses were on the healthier side and they were considered beautiful...We will never know what is it tomorow.

But I think if these things are aside... we find our friends n loved ones more beautiful than most of the other atleast in "our world" people who we love are the most beautiful of all :D
