India is a great country. It is proud of its liberal culture where the whole world is treated as a family. Inscribed in bold letters in Dev Nagari on the main entrance gate of the central hall of the Indian Parliament, the shloka from Upanishad runs like this:
I stood facing the Kailash Parvat in Tibet two decades ago. The solid black granite Shiv ling style natural massive rock jutting out in the midst of yellow sand hillocks impressed me. The pilgrims of many nationalities on a religious mission to meet the real Shiva by going round the Kailash Parvat in almost three days was a test of faith.
Exhilaration in environment. Peace in mind, body and soul. Yellow is the dominant colour of the season. The Noida Administration chose to celebrate the advent of the Spring season meat and proper to provide an outlet of joy to the common man, the literati and the glitterati alike. That is what Democracy is and the officials ever keen to come close to the common man for homogeneity in the ever growing habitat of the National Capital Region did not want to let go the golden opportunity provided by the Spring season without celebrating. Vasant Utsav or the Spring celebration in the Noida stadium provided divine sublimation as well as fun and frolic in the three-day festival to welcome Vasant.
Flowers represent beauty of nature, Flowers are anti-depressant. Flowers lift our spirits when the spirit is down in the dumps. Flowers lift the morale of soldiers in the trenches or on the battle line even if the name flower is mentioned in a message or a letter. Flowers presented to a man or a woman on the verge of committing suicide dissuade him or her from taking own life.
