Matcha is a traditional Asian tea. It is a finely ground powder that is made of crushed green tea leaves, traditionally called tencha, which are from the plant Camellia sinensis. The leaves are kept in the shade for around 20 days before the matcha is produced. It is now a common ingredient used in various dishes, both traditional and modern. Let’s have a glance at its history and origins.
My mom says I inherited… What’s the word?… Yes! It’s the Exaggeration from my dad, twisting up truths into white lies, is it?
Hmm, seems to be true! What is so fun in saying that I broke the cup? I could just say that the cat did it!
I appreciate him most when he finally stands up to Mom, who probably would be happy to see me get swallowed by my history book.
*Attempts to manifest the reunion of the Disney Fandom by screaming ‘Mowgli’, ‘Stitch’ and ‘Mickey Mouse’*
Did it work?
Right! The Disney fans (or not) who are reading this article because of my manifestation, you are in for a treat today 😉
Disney, the 13th most powerful brand worldwide, is known for its wholesome animated and live-action movies for all ages.
Well, if you are pondering a little over the title, let me elucidate that for you. I was just having a little fun playing with the different meanings of the word ‘figure’. By the way, that was a figure of speech used, a pun, well intended. If this brought a grin on your beautiful face, the purpose is served.
It was evening. The sky was a painter’s dream of accomplishment. But how could one capture this heavenly beauty that seemingly lit every corner of the Earth? The sun was slowly steeping into the ground while its scattered yellow lights bid goodbye to the worn-out people of the land. The moon was now peeping from between the fluffy white clouds, glowing softly. Its softness numbed my pricking worries, letting my mind live life for once. The wind was blowing softly. Brushing my cheeks, it quietly landed on each tree, making their nettled leaves sway gently. I stared. My restless red eyes were soaking in the simplicity of this beauty. “Even an eternity wouldn’t do justice to such a paradise,” I said quietly to myself. This moment was my escape from reality. This is when I would pretend that the world was this phenomenal dwelling of peace and love. But alas, one’s imagination can only last so long. Aware that reluctance was tugging at my heart, I turned my glance at the people around. Predictably, what lay in front of me was- in a word – “chaos”. It was quite amusing to see people so wrapped up in their problems, that not even a paradise for a solution would dare distract them. “Mortals,” I said, shaking my head in disappointment.
“God believes in creating infinite variety because he believes variety is the spice of life.”
Pluck any two leaves from the tree. Aren’t they different? Then how can two children be the same? Teachers, parents and grown-ups need to understand that each child is born with a unique set of talents, personality traits, abilities and interests to make this world a beautiful and colorful mosaic. Imagine how dull and dreadful life would be if everyone was either an engineer or a doctor?
Our environment is stressed, and it is not a hidden fact anymore. It is alarming and it is our duty to save it before it is too late. After all, it is because of our activities that our ecological balance has been disturbed. The occurrences of natural calamities are causing loss of lives.
Have you ever read a book and wished you were part of the chaotic friend group? Or sobbed your eyes out after they were reunited with a childhood best friend or when they sacrificed themselves for the other? Then this list is for you!
We are a planet made up of a diverse group of people – and a diverse group of people imply a diverse set of problems. We are riddled with issues so eclectic in their nature, it’s almost impossible to find a uniform solution to all of them.
This is where I think literature comes into picture. We turn to books and poetry when we are most helpless. In times of adversity, we seek refuge in art – which is why it is so important to have proper and equal representation in all of art’s branches.
A story, told well, stays forever in the hearts and minds of the listeners. There are plentiful factors that can be instrumental in drawing the attention and interest of listeners towards the narrator, voice being the most crucial.
