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
has a peculiar beauty to unfold. Only one should have
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?.
Nature is a great teacher. The early man was
thrilled with beauty and wonders of nature. The Aryans
worshipped nature. One can learn the lessons in the vast

they have no time to stand and stare. They cannot enjoy
the beauty of lowing rivers, swinging trees, flying birds
and majestic mountains and hills. There is however, a cry
to go back to village from the concrete and artificial
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.
