Flowers have families too
“Why do you have so many chameli plants when you never pluck the flowers?”, my maid asked.
“What will I do with the plucked flowers?”, I replied. “I don’t have enough flowers for a veni, and in any case, don’t wear them.”
“But you could pluck them and keep them next to your bed, so you can smell them at night”, she persisted.
That I definitely could do. I remember plucking almost bloomed jasmine buds and placing them by the airconditioner- fragrance all night, and blooms the next morning.
But I would hate to take them away from their Family.
