Since the dawn of human civilization, flowers play a vital role in our lives. Flowers are considered as a symbol of love and beauty. It stimulates a feeling of love and happiness and can make the surrounding cheerful. We have a beautiful garden in our home where flowers like rose, jasmine, rhododendron, sunflower etc blooms. My favourite one is jasmine. My father is very passionate about gardening. He takes utmost care of the plants and trees in our garden.

Flowers are popularly used on different types of occasions such as weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, funeral and thanksgiving. Floral arrangements when used in decorations of wedding ceremonies, birthday party or home decor enhances the aesthetic value of the place. Flowers can influence our moods to a great extent. If beautiful flowers are kept in the hospital room of sick patients it can reduce the stress and speed up the recovery. Mamma sometimes keeps a vase filled with fresh flowers in our living room or dining room which creates a comforting atmosphere and enhances the beauty of our home. Research says flowers have healing properties as well. Presence of multi-colored flowers creates a joyful impact on our mind. I like playing and spending quality time in our garden when it is filled with flowers of different colors. While I am depressed or tensed it provides a calming effect on my mind.

Flowers are also used to enhance the beauty of women. Flowers comprises an integral part of cosmetics which are used. Without flowers, the world would have been a dull and dark place to live. Insects such as bees, ants, butterflies, and wasps feed on the nectar of flowers. Flowers are also consumed by human beings. Flowers such as chamomile, mint, Angelica can be used in teas. Many flowers contain medicinal values such as sunflower, calendula for treating sore throats and tonsillitis.

Since childhood, I am very fond of listening and reading story books. My father used to read stories for me before going to bed. During my birthday or other occasions, my parents buy me storybooks. Sometimes I read the stories with my friends when they visit my home. Mamma says developing reading habits help us to enhance our analytical and thinking skills. It improves focus and concentration and can bring immense inner peace to the reader.

Today, I am going to tell you all about some of the stories which I enjoy reading.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

The famous story is written by Lewis Carroll in 1865. The book narrates how a girl named Alice falls through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world of peculiar anthropomorphic creatures. She faces various challenges and many interesting things happens to her in the fantasy world. The structure, character, narrative course, imagery used in the story are enormously influential. The important characters of the book include Alice, the white rabbit, the dodo, the mouse, the duck, puppy, Bill the lizard, the Duchess, the caterpillar etc. My favorite character is Alice who is kind and curious. In the Wonderland she meets lots of friends but it turned out to be a dream at the end. There are twelve interesting chapters of the original novel. Whenever I read the book it gives me great pleasure and it inspires me to use my imagination. I imagine myself at Alice’s place while reading the beautiful story.

Beauty and The Beast

Beauty and The Beast is another popular story which I enjoy reading. It is originally written by Charles Perrault. The story promotes the virtues of selfless sacrifice to protect those we love, finding the inner beauty of people and being kind towards everyone even if they are harsh towards us.

Cinderella

Cinderella is a folk tale which embodies the myth-element of unjust oppression and triumphant reward. It depicts how a young woman Cinderella who was living in unfortunate circumstances is suddenly changed to remarkable fortune. The story shows the ability to achieve success through perseverance and positive behavior while facing negative circumstances.

Snow White

Snow White is a popular 19th-century German fairy tale which features elements such as the poisoned apple, the magic mirror, the glass coffin, and the characters of the evil queen, and the seven dwarfs.

A good book is like a good friend which can make us feel better and relaxes our mind and soul. So we should develop the habit of reading from an early age.
