Bonds of Harmony

Bonds of Harmony

Once upon a time,

There was a kingdom

Of flowers, where

Rose, jasmine, lotus,

Dandelion, geranium,

Marigold, sunflowers,

Parijat, and many more

Blossoms bloomed.


Then one day,

A gardener tried

To separate the flowers,

On the basis of

Their structure, fragrance

And colour.


At the edge of the kingdom,

There was a wise old peepul tree.

A great poet he was,

And had a built a school,

On its branches, for

Bees, butterflies, birds and blooms.


The flustered flowers,

Sought his help.

And the wise poet said –

“It’s only in your diversity,

That each of you thrive,

And together survive.”


“Strengthen your roots,

And bind them with

Others who are near.

Create your web of protection,

Strengthen your bonds of solidarity,

And no matter what,

Don’t give up!

Don’t give up!

Don’t give up!

On your unity!”


The flowers determined to win.

And wherever the gardener,

Tried to separate their roots,

They bonded together,

With greater force and power,


Finally, the gardener gave up,

The blooms survived,

And the kingdom of flowers thrived.


To commemorate that day,

The flowers till date,

Interlink their branches

And roots.

And promise to be

By each other,

Through all the dangers

That they encounter.
