and sunset, mountains and rivers, lakes and glaciers, 
forests and fields provide joy and bliss to the human mind 
and heart for hours together.  Everything in nature is 
splendid and divine.  Everyday and every season of the year

eyes to behold it and a heart to feel it like the English 
poet William Wordsworth who after seeing daffodils 
said: ?And then my heart with pleasure fills and dances 
with the daffodils?.

thrilled with beauty and wonders of nature.  The Aryans

beauties of nature.  Their life is so full of care that

jungle of cities.    Hence the town planners of today pay 
special attention to provide enough number of natural 
scenic spots in town planning.  To develop a balanced 
personality, one needs to have a healthy attitude which can 
make us appreciate and enjoy the beauty of nature.
