A Flowers Song

Zakir Husain
Illustrations by Pooja Pottenkulam

If you were a little seed, safe and warm, nestled down in the earth, wouldnt you always want to stay there? This is the story of how one gul-e-abbas breaks out of her safe home and grows outwards and upwards, towards the light. But if even the most beautiful flower must fade and die, what is the purpose of life?
A poignant tale of how the meaning of one life is to bring joy to another.
