Plant life in concrete

Plant’s life can be found within the concrete and broken specks of bricks. The cracks present in the concrete or bricks pave a way for the root system growth for the plants growing out of a seed. As the concrete does not absorb the rainwater so, much water is available for the growth of plants. Plants do not create the cracks as the tender roots cannot penetrate through the solids like concrete and bricks.

Growing Nature

While human lives have somewhere stopped in a hope of the betterment of the current pandemic situation, there’s a living nature in which the others creatures are on their respective routes towards growth.
Similarly, we will also trace the locations of our success, love, peace and contentment by having faith in our positive and uplifting beliefs.

Here are some pictures which I collected from a nearby field.

The arriving summer and the aroma of delicious mangoes complement each other. Consumption of aam-panna, made from raw mangoes is the best way to keep oneself hydrated in the scorching sun.
The ripe mangoes are world famous for it’s delicious taste, the unripe mangoes are also beneficial for health. They are rich in Vitamin A, E and C, calcium and magnesium. They relieve in stomach problems like ingestion, bloating, detoxification of liver, increase in production of bile secretion and enhances the hormonal system.

India is the largest producer of mangoes and contributes to about 50% of world’s total production.
Out of the 500 varieties of mango, Alphonso is referred to as “King of Mango” because of its exotic taste and texture. The variety is mainly grown in the regions of Maharashtra.

Things to Learn from Nature

Adaptation

Nature teaches us to adopt some changes to survive in different circumstances.

For example, the insects have distasteful chemicals to distract the predators. Animals move in groups for protection.

Feelings of Being Blessed

The tree branches laden with fruits bow down. They show gratitude for whatever they have. They possess a tendency of sharing and feeding several many creatures but, a dried tree never bows.

This simply means that the good people are grateful for the goodness they posses and they share it too. They help others.

Silence

Nature generally remains silent, it listens to everyone and it has it’s own rhythm that pleases everyone.

Aware of Limits

Nature is helping and nurturing but, if we over exploit it, we are damaging ourselves. So, it means that it is good be anything but, it should be in limit.

Hope

Every giant creature that is present in nature was once a tiny particle.

A small plant grows in the crevices of walls even when there is no soil.

So, it is the hope that drives the life.

Growth

Each and every part of the nature is moving ahead with progress that means that as time passes we should always work towards our progress with better deeds and actions.

Punctuality

Has there been any day when the sun forgot to rise or when it didn’t set before night?

Everything has a fixed time at which it should be done and we should be always on time.
