Devrai, Garden Stories- 49
Bee keeping and Gardening

A bee can unravel so many secrets if you care to watch it! All the gardening tricks were lying as if in a heap of jigsaw pieces! The bee waved its magic wand and everything fell in place.
Turning flower into fruit, water and nectar into honey, the bee seems to play a crucial role in the web of life! Some times it goes to the most insignificant looking flowers (the Bamboo flowers in picture) but if didn't, there would be no regeneration in Bamboos. Some Bamboo varieties flower gregariously after long stretches of time ( as much as 40 years) after which they die. Imagine if there were no bees to pollinate this rare blooming of the Bamboo flowers, the whole Bamboo forest would die!
The pollen collected by the bees which is retrieved from the hive is sold at a price much more than its weight in gold! Honey and Bees wax are used extensively in Ayurvedic medicines and is often an essential component also in cosmetics .
One of Atul's friend had gifted him a Thai Guava, which is much bigger than the normal guava that we get here and has hardly any seeds. Atul retrieved the seeds and now we have 3 trees . They bore fruit last year and this year too are bearing fruits. But if our garden bees had not accepted them , they would have remained barren! Such is the Power of the Bees!
