Flowers are a symbol of beauty and peace. When we get up in the morning and see a flower, it brings a smile on our face. We feel peaceful and at least for fraction of a second, we forget our worries. I have to start early to school. My school is just walking distance away, but the distance is twenty minutes walk from my home. Since we do not stay in the city, we are away from the hustle and bustle of city life! I like walking from home to my school because on the way I can see many trees and flowers in the small gardens in front of other houses. They are like rainbows in the sky. Flowers make a place colourful and beautiful. The rose plant is the most common in every garden. Another common flower is jasmine that has a good odour. But my favourite flower is the lotus. The lotus is also the national flower of our country. The reason why I like the lotus is very funny, it’s because I have not seen anyone putting the lotus on their head to decorate their hair! I do not like plucking flowers to be put on the hair. Have you noticed the lotus? It is mostly rose in colour. It comes out from the muddy swamp and beautifies even the damp. When we see the full bloomed lotus we forget the damp and the dirt. There lies the beauty of the flower. The lotus looks very beautiful with its long petals, decked on its big green leaves. Many a times we are tempted to pluck it, but be careful, looks are deceptive! The lotus has a long stem and it’s strong and deep, so we need not try to pluck it as we might fall into the water. There is a story of Maharaj Shivaji, his mother Jijabai wanted a flower to be given as an offering to God. The condition was that it shouldn’t be touched by anyone. Shivaji shot it with his bow, in such a way that it fell on the lap of the Lords idol. The flower that he shot was the lotus. Lotus is said to be a symbol of spiritual awakening, as it stands as a distinct single flower. Our thought should also be like that of the lotus. In other words, we should search for the inward beauty and purity of a person, rather than the outward, as looks may be deceptive!
