Mirror Mirror On The Wall

Alarm clock starts yelling. Its another day. And as like some custom we all head towards mirror. It may be large, medium or a very small one, but the facination it holds is largest than that of anything else in this world. Our routine starts with it and ends with it.
Sometimes it seems as if somebody is staring at us from behind a glass or else vice-versa. And because of formation of this magnetic relationship of ourselves with us, we also call it "Looking Glass". More and more we look in that glass, more we keep on discovering great deal of details about our appearance that were hidden till now. I wonder why sellers shouldn't sell mirrors with a statutory warning on it quoting : "Prolonged use may lead to serious side effects like self obsession, over-confidence, addiction or job dissmisal due to continuous delays in reaching the work place".
Even if the person is very ordinary looking still mirror teaches him to love himself. Beautiful features of a person prompts him/her to consult the mirror every now and then, or else sometimes it compliments us digging and discovering best from our souls like our smile, expressions of peace, love and care over our faces that makes us more beautiful. Mirror brings us close to ourselves forming a unique bond with itself and with ourselves that its beyond description. Its a remedy to boost our confidence. Its a wonder out of wonderland.
Mirror leaves its impact on us in three ways:
Case I : When we look in it and discover we look usual just like any other day, maximum chances are its going to be just another day for us(provided if nothing exciting happens on the work front too).
Case II: If it tells us that we look great and better than the previous day/s, probability is higher that that day will be the day full of admiration, confidence and cheering.
Case III: And now last, as like it happens at times with most of us, we have bad hair days, swollen eyes or something of that sort and we dont find ourselves good enough for another look. As mirror makes us self concious, so due to that we may have a hard day or may be the lost one. And if there is nothing excieting at work place and nobody finds a time to chit-chat with us, or give us a pleasant glance, its going to be the worst one!!
Though some people manages to escape its lure, but more or less it affects our lives in such a fashion. A mirror is that dynamite that can make or break our entire day or rather boost or shatter our whole confidence. The time we spend before it is the time we are spending with ourselves, remembering and adoring ourselves.

People practice speech before going out in meetings or dates, just to be sure about themselves and because of their desire to present best of them before the other person. When sombody is upset or someone is crying, it is surprising to see the forgotten expression of their sorrows, due to their encounter with the mirror. Children stop crying, people stop thinking as and when they are before it. It makes us concious of ourselves.

Shopkeepers know the cunning ways of mirrors. So they all use mirrors elaborately with bright lighting inside their shops, making their customers concious, alert and obsessive about their appearance, which compells a person to shed bucks and bucks on the accessories and clothes for themselves just to quench their souls. It is no wonder that sometimes we bring in home many useless things and clothes that were looking one of the bests in shops but are now worst choice one can ever make. Many times it also happens, that while shopping somebody "not so pleasing" , sitting besides, disturbs us with his weird stares and if suddenly mirrors comes in a way, we suddenly forget everything and becomes concious about ourself ignoring the other things, places, event and people around. Mirror changes priorities of the moment.

I have heard eyes and love are the only things that says alot without saying anything. Mirror does the same, creating many magical moments around. Its a love for oneself. Call it my love for mirror.. :)


  1. all I was saying to myself reading this was, it happpens! you ve just mirrored ppl's thoughts too.

    However, it becomes more dangerous if its a Saint Gobain :)

  2. standing in front of the mirror is like facing brutal truth.. u know ders no escaping.. it shows truth n only truth.. sumtimes it makes u feel hmm not bad.. n d other times it leaves with scopes of improvement.. so ya definitely mirrors n not diamonds are a girl's best friend..
    y leave behind guys?? i know guys who hv d habit of checkin demselves in d mirror more no of times than an average ya sumthins indiscriminating..

  3. Does this write up has anything to do with your name? haha. no i must say a very detailed though process and very true in lot of aspects. But it will be interesting to test the three cases which mentioned in actual.... thinking back how you felt when you looked in the mirror .. and how your day was.. some of these things happen in subconscious mind state.. so i wonder how does your feeling while looking the mirror connects with behaviour of others around you towards you.


  4. lol my name is shesha and not sheesha or shisha, wtv!! its meaning is entirely different and it nowhere resembles with the mirror. But ya lots of ppl have commented the same way. lol
    The three cases may not come true for everyone. Again i didn't actually connected the behaviour of people to our feeling while looking at the mirror rather i have essayed the resulted day after combined reaction of the people's behaviour and our mirror image. As like "if you dont find yourself looking good in the mirror and people around you dont find you looking good too the same day, your day becomes worse."
    you got it?? :)
    Keep smiling


Thankyou for your feedback :)
