Climbed up the granite stairs to look at my Aunt's roof garden... the first thing that caught my eye is this tiny delicate little snowy jasmine, & one can never get enough of its fragrance!
Mesmerizing and intoxicating it is... and it has got an interesting history to it!
♧ it is the national flower for Phillipines!
♧ it is one among the 3 national flowers of Indonesia.
♧ it symbolizes purity, sacredness, graceful simplicity and sincerity. It also represents the beauty of modesty!!
♧ In Cambodia, these are used as offering to lord Buddha.
♧ a sacred flower due to its association with Indian Gods like Brahma, Vishnu, Goddess Lakshmi, and Saraswati.
♧ The fragrance of Lady Gaga's perfume, Fame, was thought to be inspired by this tiny jasmine when she bought one from the street children in Manila the time she had her concert in the Philippines.😮
♧ China's Jasmine Tea 🤗
And manyyyy more...!
I personally like it because when I was a kid, we used to have a jasmine vine in our garden... just after the evening study time, mom used to open the door letting us go out & play...
& the gushing evening breezes used to carry the scent of these flowers to a long distances.
I still remember experiencing the touch of those gentle breezes with a sharp soothing fragrance in it still rings!!
... then realized... we can't just ignore any tiny spec...for as it has got it's own unique role in the deeper pages of our memory!
