The Sunflower

The bright yellow color of the Sun flower. Botanical name is Helianthus Indicus. The sunflower is actually made of thousands of florets as you can clearly see from the picture above. It’s a compound flower.  There are a number of Sanskrit words for the Sunflower I found online.  They are of different genders (m=masculine; f=feminine; n=neuter). This signifies the beauty of the Sanskrit language. Sanskrit is an ancient language in which all the sacred scriptures of Sanatana Dharma were written.  In Sanskrit, the Sanskrit language is called by many names but I like “GeervaaNa Bhaarati” or गीर्वाण भारति in Devanagari lipi.
