On a rusty evening, wandering around in a thicket, whilst cluelessly wondering about the colorless life, a tree amidst the bushes, seized the vision; and was attempting to hit the consciousness. Aroma of pride filled the surrounding, in turn making the environment blissful. It stood there in trance as if it had touched the ultimate ecstasy, wanting to preach the very essence of life and was trying to dump some sense into this stupid mind. The very sight of the tree was invoking the images of enlightened Buddha in the heart and was stimulating goosebumps. Sorry…!, got a little philosophical here. Though in their own dimension, no life on this planet is devoid of problems. But, most of us, the human beings, so called the most intelligent creature of the planet, are so scared of issues and loose hope in life. Only a hand-few succeed overcoming the difficulty. But, this tree wants to build hope in those beings who have lost their liveliness and wants to help creatures develop courage, self-respect and an attitude to face the trouble.
Sometime when this tree was yet a plant, someone, for some reason had tied a rope around the trunk of this tree. As the days passed by, this rope began to hinder the growth of this plant. The plant tried hard to open up the tied knot in the rope, but was beyond its capabilities due to lack of limbs; just kidding. It also struggled to sever the rope into pieces, only to know that the rope was strong enough. Hence, all the efforts by the beloved plant were in vain. But it didn’t give up. It came up with a phenomenal way to tackle the obstacle. It finally decided to live with it. The plant grew normally without any hesitation and appears fine except the trunk appears constricted where the rope was wound. Of course, the plant might not have grown to the fullest, but neither did it loose itself to the hurdle and still stands tall explaining its glory to the explorers.
End of the day, walked out of the woods, with a glare on the face and a pearl drop at tip of the eye with a lesson firmly imprinted in heart: Strive to get rid of the problem, if not learn to live with it.
