View Full Version : A Pearl & A Flower

One day, a brilliantly beautiful and fragrant flower with attractive
colours met a pearl that lived far in the bottom of the sea and had none
of these characteristics.

Both got acquainted with each other.

The flower said: "Our family is large; roses and daisies are members of
the family. And there are many other species that are various and
countless; each has a distinctive scent, and appearance."

Suddenly, a tinge of distress appeared on the flower.

"Nothing accounts for sorrow in your talk; so why are depressed?" The
pearl asked.

"Human beings deal with us carelessly; they slight us. They don't grow
us for our sake but to get pleasure from our fragrance and beautiful
appearance. They throw us on the street or in the garbage can after we
are dispossessed of the most valuable properties; brilliance and
fragrance" The flower sighed.

And then the flower said to the pearl: "Speak to me about your life!
How do you live? How do you feel it? You are buried in the bottom of
the sea. "

The pearl answered: "Although I have none of your distinctive colours
and sweet scents, humans think I am precious. They do the impossible to
procure me. They go on long journeys, dive deep in the seas searching
for me. You might be astounded to know that the further I lay, the more
beautiful and brilliant I become. That's what upraises my value in
their thought. I live in a thick shell isolated in the dark seas.
However, I'm happy and proud to be in a safe zone far from wanton and
mischievous hands and still the humans consider me highly valuable"

The flower is the unveiled woman (who shows her charms)

and the pearl is the veiled woman (who conceals her beauties) Think
about it!
