On my part, I love the Lotus for the fact ,that it always has the ability to stand out in its sloshy situation, with its head held high, and showing off its vibrant colours. So much so, that we brave the slippery and dangerous waters in an attempt to reach the flower that captivated us from afar…
It is rather easy many a time, to let our external situation bog us down. But to rise beyond that and exhibit our intrinsic value – that is what I hope to learn from this beautiful plant.
