I got this plant as a B’day gift from my office in 2007. Since then it has been one of the important things in my life. I moved from Mumbai to Indore last month.While packing from office I was sure that I will take it with me and when I was packing it along with my other stuff my colleagues were surprised as to why am I taking this along..what good will it do to me ? I said “you won’t understand what it means to me” and after reaching home and packing stuff at home this plant was not having place in my luggage,hubby insisted that I leave it at the flat only. Second time suggested about leaving the plant. And I almost left it unpacked. But when I looked at it for the last time,when our luggage was taken to the ground floor and into the taxis,I sensed that it is saying-“please take me with you”. I felt a connection with it and yes, I just picked it up and kept it into my hand bag. Of course hubby dearest did not know until we reached here at Indore and unpacked.
Today it resides at the window table in my kitchen and I water it religiously every alternate day ! I’m glad I picked it up and did not listen to any of the advices been given to me ! It reminds me of the good time that I have spent in the office and with the people out there. it reminds of the great B’day that I had. It carries a lot of memories with it !
Call me emotional or whatever. I’m like that and I love this plant and I’m very sure it loves me in turn 🙂
