Nice pic Mr P... if I remember correctly, it didn't end well for the 5 Pandavas. I don't remember if this is taken as more of an Aesop's Fables, to teach lessons and morals, or a literal belief, but either way, that white lie and his compassion for his brothers sure cost Yudhisthira a heavy price. Thanks for reminding me of things I haven't thought about for many years since my school days. One almost has to wonder if the flower was bred to match the story, or was a convenient vessel that had already occurred in nature?
