I planted a mango seed in a pot on my balcony. Soon the seedling grew and became a strong plant. I wanted to provide a proper home for it. And I started praying, within days my prayers were answered.

Amazing! I happily packed off my mango sapling, and now it is happily settled in the large school campus, merrily singing to the tunes of the passing breeze.

Chamomile

Be it the humble chamomile or a huge mango tree, the creator has bestowed it with bountiful treasures for the goodness of mankind.

Scientists found that drinking chamomile tree was linked to decreased risk of death from all causes in Mexican American women.
