Mirror, mirror on the wall, Who in the land is the fairest of all???

How many of us gaze and begin  a touch-up as soon as we see a mirror in front of us, unmindful of the place???  I am sure, all of you would be nodding your head, of course, with a smile on your lips.  This is but natural for all of us  to ensure that we look good at all times. 

This reflex action is not restricted to humans alone.  Even cats, dogs and birds react when they see their reflection in a mirror.  I have witnessed many instances when a sparrow keeps banging on the mirror upon seeing it reflect. 

I have seen many completing their final touch-ups in their car, I do so :):) The elevator (lift)  is another vital source which provides ample time to adjust in the absence of fellow members with you inside.  In shops, one can see the dresses displayed on oneself to  verify the suitability of color.  In some Chennai sari shops, they drape you with the sari to view in the life-size mirrors and to get approval from almost everyone present in the scene. 

Each of us feel that we look good inspite of our flaws.  To set right the flaws, we resort to make-ups and enhancements in the form of mascara, kajal, lip colors etc etc..  To perform the above acts, we take refuge in a mirror.  A lady in particular, would love to have a full size mirror in her house to get a full image.  Most of us would be carrying a palm-size mirror in our hand bags and this has come in several shapes now.   Nowadays, I see men too getting addicted to mirror gazing !!!!!!!

I would  recall the Scooty Pep advertisement in the television where the model would be adjusting her lipstick looking at the nearby car window and the person inside the car wondering what was happening. It was a good ad.

Vaastu experts have their say of the directions of the placement of mirrors in the house for maximum benefits.

It would not be an exaggeration if I say that 'Mirrors are humans best friends'. How often do u see yourself in a mirror during the day??????


  1. Ms. Chitchat..its not only us girls, but I have seen many boys/males on Streets of Mumbai.. combing their hair and adjusting neckties by looking at the parked car's side view mirrors.. before heading for work...this was when I was working in Mumbai in 2000..the friendship with mirrors is long lasting and it never says things that would hurt us...My toddlers school has a new activity.. they take turns looking in the mirror and one from the group says something nice to him from behind the mirror...motivating self esteem...guess it starts way too early..being he is only 3 now...good write up and missed you.
    Love Ash.

  2. I see mirror a lot of times right from my 5th std or something around that, I remember my granny yelling at me for that. But I never care. But now after a kid, I see only few times though I have lots of tall mirrors all over my home :)

  3. I think that everybody loves to spend a considerable time in front of the mirror to look best. Wonderful post.

  4. All this sounds very familiar!!!! Everybody`s into mirror gazing these days!!!
