Lotus – Our National FlowerAugust 17, 2007 at 11:25 am | Posted in national symbols | 3 Comments
How many of us have seen lotus in last 2-3 years? It is a very rare flower and can hardly be seen in Metropolitan cities. No no, I am not saying that you cannot spot it up, but only in shops.
So shall we say that selection of Lotus as our national flower was not correct? I think I cannot say it as of now.
If Lotus was our national flower, why was the authority granted to BJP to use it as their election symbol? In villages, people still do not know about political parties. All they know is their election symbol. So a normal villager will say – “Humko kamal nahin haath achchha lagta hai”. Isn’t it something bad for our national flower?
Organizing rallys to break and demolish Mosques under the name of our national flower? Is it correct? Come on, Lotus, our very own lotus require some sincere respect, which is out of books and merely education.
Let us hope to see some respect for our national flower in the future.
