Guided by the appearance can be disastrous. In this world of deception and deceit, what is seen outwardly, is not the reality. Often the glittering appearance, hide the foulness of wickedness. When advertisements display, showiness, have all become the day of life and the judgment of the reality have become very difficult. The good looking innocent people are the perfect cheat of the day. The only way to save ourselves from such hypocrites is to be very attentive and careful in life with good observance.

What is exhibited and displayed outwardly should not be taken, as creditworthy. Visual appearance are commonly deceptive. The quality of a ting can only be judged but its use only. In manycases, a thing appears to be very durable and cheap may turn out a duplicate. Duplicates or imitations commonly have more shinning or glittering or than the original one.

Don’t trust just the sayings or outlook or appearance of any body, it may be a curel cheat, a tricky fellow, a Charles Sobhraj, a Natwer Lal.

Try to ascertain his motives and anaylse his actions. Keep a close vigil. What appears to be gold may turn out a yellow metal, a polish of Gold on iron, a fake colour of gold on brass. So beware of the appearance, judge the things from its original contents, “All that glitter is not Gold.”
