Why Hand Some..

Beauty Full Hand Some Why Hand at all..the guys have legs too...to the best of my knowledge and belief. Did Hand mean something different when that word was coined? Oh so many questions...English is tough I tell you...try erasing it from your minds and relearning it..

I know...but periodically, the words break down...if it is beauty full, then why not hand full, (which they are as you know). And the hand minus torso, head, legs, has me really wonder what that person was up to when coming up for word equivalent to beauty full. Was some meant to be sum. Phew...English has no logic ...tough language to learn.
In fact I was clueless when I read this discussion ...so having referred the net I could get why they are called as hand some and not leg some! Link: Thanks @vandana7!
Definition of handsome - (of a man) good-looking., (of a number, sum of money, or margin) substantial
@skysnap .. Shadi mein haath mangna implies asking her hand in marriage, and that is companionship. On the contrary, we are comparing physical attributes. If comparison is to be made ..people would compare tea with coffee. Not tea with sandwich. It is something like that.
Even women can be well-proportioned and elegant. If you consider the word beauty itself, its opposite should be unbeauty or nobeauty. That would be so simple. From where did ugly come..how do you correlate words like that...so much to learn in your language. So tough. :(

I think what it was back in those days where everything was so violent and crude. Women were lucky to find men with both of their hands. Since only some men had both of their hands they combined. You are so handsome because you have both of your hands and only some men have that. You are so handsome.
