U for Unicorn

We have heard so much about the Unicorn that it was high time that I read about it. it is a legendary animal which looks like a horse but has a spiraling horn like projection on its head. It was popular during middle ages and is a symbol of purity and grace, which could only be captured by a virgin.

There were also stories build around the creature that spoke of a quest, innocence, monetary poverty, physical beauty. There is also a mortal in the story who is rewarded for selfless behavior.

Contrary to popular belief Unicorns cannot create rainbows or any other misconceptions linked to “girly” things. They also dont look or taste like candy. They just appear so on the wrappers and posters.

They say Unicorns have disappeared because of Pollution and technology advancement. [Sorry but I am just not ready to buy this]

Well they are mythical or real I am not challenging it however I am drawing a parallel analogy to the need of human beings to believe in something that makes it all right and sparkly. It can be a person, things or place or even a non-existent  creature.

  1. Unicorns are always pictured as the good creatures and I think I believe in them, coz they were such good things In Harry Potter! 🙂 And they looks stunning too, with that single horn of theirs.

  2. “There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,Than are dreamt of in your philosophy” – Hamlet. So who knows maybe they did roam the Earth.
