Abstract

D H R U B A S A P K O T A TheyÕre seated around the Þre pitÑfrom the grandmotherb a d e n i down to the granddaughter b a d e n i Ñthree generations of ßowers threaded onto one necklace. Flowers for the picking, for the plucking. To be slung around anyoneÕs neck. The grandmother ßower was plucked ages ago, and today the granddaughter will be plucked. ItÕs natural. A ßower is a ßower. But the grandmother no longer has any fragrance; old ßowers wither away. Some- one plucks the new ones. Before they have a chance to come into full b l o o m, someone is in a hurry to pluck them, to twist them from the vine. Such a hurry, such a hurry ! T hew o m enl i vew i tht hew a i t i nga ndt heh a r d s h i p s. Ino ne day therem a y be as many as twenty hardships. No one can say for sure. And as for the w a it!
