"Life teaches a lot my dear children", Grandpa was telling to his grandchildren during the evening tea time. Why? Rita asked. Grandpa smiled and said, "See that tree", pointing his finger towards the mango tree that was inside their boundaries from the last 30 years. Adding to his statement, Grandpa then proceeded as follows, "Dear little stars, this mango tree is my very old friend whom I am seeing from last 30 years". During autumn, it sheds all its leaves and regains all of them during the spring. Its mangoes are very sweet and tasty. But one year it gives plenty of mangoes whereas, in some other year, it hardly gives one or two. Maybe it was unwell during that period, who knows? I talk to it and it says that yes it was not well and it told me that I was responsible for its illness as I did not give it water for a continuous two days. That's how we exchange our conversation.
So, it tells me that, Grandpa added to his statement that, "Life comes with different circumstances and we need to stand with it exactly similar as this mango tree who has experienced, struggled and then survived several natural disasters and climatic conditions. Still, it is standing as bold as it was earlier. I am proud of you my friend, said Grandpa by giving a deep hug to the mango tree.
