Everything is temporary

“Everything is temporary; Emotions, thoughts, people and scenery. Don’t become attached, just flow with it” Unknown

Philosophy of flowers in our life

“Even the prettiest flower will die one day. It’s nature’s way of teaching us that nothing lasts forever” Unknown

And these days…

Nothing lasts forever.

Not even the Corona Virus.

Yes, my friend.

Mark my word.

We have undergone enough suffering.

No more!

Better days are ahead!

Thank you for visiting my site.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Bargaining Power

“If you don’t get what you want, it’s a sign either that you did not seriously want it, or that you tried to bargain over the price” Rudyard Kipling

One can come across these roadside sellers while travelling on the National Highways in India.

They are the poor people who buy the local produce and try to sell the products be flowers, fruits, other miscellaneous items and believe me the rates are much cheaper as compared to the items in the city.

The products are fresh too!

No added colours or chemicals!

Most of them can be seen near the Toll Plazas, where the vehicles stop to pay the toll.

Do you love to bargain?

I usually avoid bargaining.

I found the majority of the road travellers bargaining with these people, fully knowing that they are very poor and can’t afford proper meals twice a day.

Even in the cities and towns, we come across people who bargain with the street vendors or road side sellers.

I also noticed a similar tendency in developed countries too as far as ‘bargaining power’ goes.

This really shocked me.

I guess the ‘bargaining mentality’ is a chip embedded in our brain as we grow from our childhood to adulthood

“In the morning bargaining with the vendor for 10 rupees.

In the evening… giving 100 rupees as tips”

It’s not about the money. It’s about the mindset, we are just used to the thought that, bargaining is our right.

A right which we often fail to use in supermarkets or malls but think about the vendors, for whom even a single penny matters. We think they will make a profit no matter how much we bargain… maybe they do…

But is it necessary to bargain with those poor sellers?

A few pennies lost by us will not affect our lives much but a few pennies gained by them would definitely add some food to an empty stomach.

So think before you bargain, and if you do, do with a right person”  Navnita Singh

Take home message

Please stop bargaining with poor sellers.

I know bargaining has become a habit, difficult to eradicate…

Let us be kind to street vendors or roadside sellers.

The irony is people who can afford usually bargain!

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Fashion your life as a garland of beautiful deeds-Buddha

“To have ideas is to gather flowers; to think is to weave them into garlands” Sophie Swetchine

The above image is a garland of two flowers together-Jasmine & a Firecracker.

Firecracker(Crossandra) is known by the name Kanakambaram in South India.

These flowers are used to adorn the hairdo in the South Indian States.

These flowers are popular in bridal hairstyles.

Women wearing flowers on hair is a common sight in India especially South India

“Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it” Confucius

Why the Indian women, especially those from South India wear the flowers on their hair without fail, every day?

Every morning, the women religiously put on the flower strands on their heads after a bath.

These flower strands make the women look beautiful (Indians feel that way, and I am not sure, how the westerners feel about wearing a flower on the hair).

Flowers are a symbol of love, good luck, happiness, and prosperity.

In an Indian household, a girl is supposed to wear flowers on her hair because it brings happiness to the family and prosperity to all the members.

Wearing flowers on the hair is the symbol that Goddess Lakshmi (Goddess of Wealth) is residing in the house and that wealth will never leave the house.

Jasmine, Rose, and Hibiscus are common, jasmine being the favourite.

How the garland is made? Check this clip.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Flower Of The Day

Always one gets confused between violet and purple when there are shades in the colour.

Everything is better in purple...

“I do love violets, they tell the history of woman’s love” Letitia Elizabeth

There are so many beautiful reasons to be happy…and flowers are just one! Unknown

I am sure nobody would have come across a person who hates flowers.

None of us knows what is the exact reason, we all love flowers.

Each comes out with own reasons

✔Some say flowers relieve one from stress.

✔Some feel it’s a mood changer.

✔Some said there is a flower 🌸 for every occasion.

✔Many expressed that flowers are always colourful and thus they wish for a colourful life.

✔Many say flowers are pure and so they decorate their favourite deity with flowers.

✔Millions said that the first thing they do when they see a flower is to smell it and enjoy the fragrance that takes them to a different world.

✔Many feel the flower is a symbol of Love.

✔It’s said one can convey one’s feelings just with flowers.

✔Flowers are used as gifts, decorative pieces and a function is incomplete without the presence of the flowers.

✔Many flowers are used in medicine.

✔There is no perfume industry without flowers.

Do you have any favourite flowers?

If so what is your reason?

I love Jasmine for its fragrance.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Yellow is capable of charming God – Vincent Van Gogh

Yellow is a vibrant colour exuding happiness.

The very thought of yellow reminds you of soft sunshine during early morning and late evening.

The colour also reminds us of that energetic honey or vibrant lemons.

The colour is said to be associated with joy, happiness and abundant energy.

“Yellow is a very favorable vibration for mental or intellectual activity, as it promotes a clear state of mind. Yellow heightens your awareness and alleviates depression, sadness, or any kind of despondency. Yellow vibration foods are: pineapples, bananas, grapefruit, lemons and corn” Tae

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
