Which is your favourite flower?
If you ask me, I won't hesitate a second - It's Lotus!
Such a fascinating, pure flower.
I have seen lotus flowers in temple ponds, lakes, dirty mud, but, they radiate such a sense of energy and vigour in their colour.
And also, irrespective of their surroundings, they are beautiful, always. We, the human beings also should be like this, I feel, Unique, distinct, special - not affected by surroundings!
Also, the water droplets running on the lotus leaves.. they teach a million story.. if you are attached your desires like "water-drops-on-lotus-leaf", you will not be addicted anything!
So, It gives me immense pleasure to just watch!!

Be Happy! Celebrate Life!!
