The spirit of all that the universal proverb that says : For a tree to bear fruit , it must honour its roots! Grows can also be found inside each and every one of us.

In the stories of long ago we hear of how the people toiled for long hours tilling the land, starting before sunrise and giving their very best to ensure the richest crops at harvest time.
