What prompts our politicians to water freshly-seeded plants even if it starts raining, drizzling or showering? If they are viewed pouring water in the open despite the rains, it will be seen as a politically clever vision. If it happens to be raining scantly, watering the plants timely can lead to the best plant growth from any plot of land in any season.
So, there is no need to pelt ripe tomatoes on politicians if they follow the practice of watering plats during rains. They very well know that timely watering can help the best plant growth from any soiling ground in any season.
Even in the rainy season, watering usually helps because the water that falls is not necessarily available to all plants outside. The roots need air to function and heavy rains can temporarily drive all air out of the soil. Roots start to breathe and function again only after gravity has pulled excess water deeper into the ground.
A timely watering will spur plant growth during drier periods between rains. If you find the time, watch on TV how a well-known woman journalist holding an umbrella while watering the plants even as it rains. She copied the position of a Chief Minister. She was doing so to show the viewers inefficiency and gimmicky nature of the minister’s policies.
The minister seemed to follow the concept of watering through a garden sprinkler just for a photo session as this aspect helps him to show what he intends to exhibit. Undeniably, onlookers will see aberration in the politician’s deed, but they do not seem to know that they fathom every complex point. They don’t even know what botany says about watering plants during the rains.
Moreover, political leaders do not like to lose any moment in their political life without showing their social work. As has been stressed by dejected, rejected and saddened Babul Suprio, who declared that he would not leave social work, was he not aware of politics being a kind of social work? Watering the plant in rains is a sort of courage for politicians. It is acceptable from the present-day usual political point but no longer necessary for the politicians who essentially want to be social workers.
