Once upon a time, in a faraway land, a young prince lived in a shining castle. Although he had everything his heart desired, the prince was spoiled, selfish, and unkind. But then, one winter’s night, an old beggar woman came to the castle and offered him a single rose in return for shelter from the bitter cold. Repulsed by her haggard appearance, the prince sneered at the gift and turned the old woman away, but she warned him not to be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within.
1)What is (y) our idea of beauty? In what ways has this been shaped by Media?
2)”Beauty is found within”. Do you agree with this? Why?
3)Why is there so much of ‘attention’ for the ” good-looking” and worse, a mad craze for “looking good” within our culture?
4) Why do you think it is so difficult for us to accept the fact that beauty is not skin deep?
