Animals run & cry when attacked by predators. But plants have adapted to appeal to animals and birds that spread their seeds.
Over millions of years, these plants have developed ways to communicate with animals through fruits, new research suggests, saying something like “choose me.” With traits evolved to match each animal’s sensory capacities or physical abilities, fruits can signal dinner time, and further their plant’s survival as a species.


Red berries and orange figs hang in the rain forest’s canopy. They are waiting for monkeys, apes or birds to scan the foliage, eat the ripe fruit and either spit or defecate seeds far from their sources, spreading their next generation to a new location.

Definition of Bhagvan or God.

Who can be called Bhagvan?Maharishi Parasharawas the author of many ancient Indian texts. He is accredited as the author of the first Purana, the Vishnu Purana, before his son Vyasa wrote it in its present form. He was the grandson of Vasishtha, the son of Śakti Maharṣi, and the father of Vyasa.


ऐश्वर्यस्यसमग्रस्यवीर्यस्ययशसःश्रियः। ज्ञान-वैराग्ययोश्चैवषण्णांभगइतीरणा॥ aiśvaryasya samagrasya vīryasya yaśasaḥ śriyaḥ  jñāna-vairāgyayoś caiva ṣaṇṇāṁ bhagam itīṅganā (Viṣṇu Purāṇa 6.5.47)


The term ‘Bhagavan’ or God, is thus defined by Parasara Muni as one who is full in six opulences— 1.who has unlimited strength 2.fame 3.wealth 4.knowledge 5.beauty and 6.renunciation.
