Fancy a world like that where heart had no significance and just functioning of brain was given prime importance to?

Hussain, Edgar Degas, Salvador Dali and others, the serene poets in William Shakespeare, Rabindranath Tagore, Amit Chaudhuri and others, and many such artists who have walked their own mile only to make a name for themselves in the works they knew they could do their best.
