Sifting through layers of life
To arrive at the truth of it all.
You have to pass through many stages.
There will be the lure of enticements
There will be the spell of bewitchments
There will be beguiling colours
That seem to hold your senses in rapture.
But if you truly wish to witness
The truth amidst the facades
You will notice the simplest clues
That were always there right before you
Just that you never noticed
Like as often truth is taken for granted
In the arresting sights that enthrall.
Choose to see beyond the facades
You will touch base with the truth of it all.
Interestingly the thoughts that resulted in this post came from mangoes actually. As my thoughts were on how we as consumers are sold chemically ripened fruits like mangoes and bananas rampantly.
Here is simple way I came across to test chemically ripened mangoes which I also tried at home … Just take a large bowl of water and try to immerse the mangoes in it. Watch what happens…
Apparently only the chemically ripened mangoes float in water and the others rest at the bottom .
The bigger mango is floating and the smaller one is resting at the bottom.
Trying to understand a little more I chanced upon this clip below.
This is a great link share on the same subject. Of sifting through the fakes!!!
Watch “How to find out- Organic Mangoes vs chemical treated Mangoes” on YouTube
We are sadly in a world without ethical practices in businesses. We need to find ways to sustain our world . It begins with each of us. As each step to change for better and find solutions starts with understanding the issues up close.
If any of you have experiences or tips on how to find out the artificially ripened fruits do care to share.
Hope it helps to spread awareness.
