Rice is the seed of the monocot plants Oryza sativa (Asian rice) or Oryza glaberrima (African rice). As a cereal grain, it is the most widely consumed staple food for a large part of the world’s human population, especially in Asia.Rice cultivation is well-suited to countries and regions with low labor costs and high rainfall, as it is labor-intensive to cultivate and requires ample water. However, rice can be grown practically anywhere, even on a steep hill or mountain area with the use of water-controlling terrace systems. Although its parent species are native to Asia and certain parts of Africa, centuries of trade and exportation have made it commonplace in many cultures worldwide.

LIfe is full of ups and downs, the way we see it, reflects  the way life appears to us. The Entire life sums up in Joy, sorrow, happiness, sadness, hope and despair.

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart”

Helen Keller

“Your emotions are the slaves to your thoughts, and you are the slave to your emotions.”
