Talking Plants

By Dr. Sunil Ji Garg on 09-12-2014

‘Syngonium’ was telling ‘Caladium’ that you are far more beautiful as compared to me, but look the master loves me more as I have been put in more number of pots. ‘Dieffenbachia’ was a little nervous today, as the child in the family was sick after eating a part of him. ‘Coleus’ was planning to participate in a fashion show, but she has been asking the organizers if ‘Croton’ has also given her name for the show. The ‘Marigold’ was happy that he was no more required to share the same room with ‘Dahlia’. He thanked his master and was ready to bow in front of his master’s prayer idol.
‘Bougainvillea’ appeared too friendly with ‘Asparagus’, rising hand in hand this time. The ‘Portulaca’ was always afraid of being overshadowed by the ‘Wandering Jew’. The master was watching all this happening in his home garden. He was surprised the way plants were talking to each other. He decided to find the real name of every plant he has at his home, using the Internet. Incredible images of leaves, flowers and trees were seen by him. He carefully noted down every name and every detail about the plants he had.
Next morning when he came out of his house to look at his plants, he felt as if all plants were queued up to ask him, what he found about them. He pulled up a chair and sat down near them. He started calling each plant with their real names. He now knew all the names. He could feel the joy of talking to his own plants. No! This story won’t end the way such stories end, that he came out of his dream, or he fell down from his cot. Everything was real. I experienced it myself, so I decided to share it with you. Let’s talk to nature. We have so many friends around us.
