Avalanche of apples written by @meenasankaran inspired me to write this snippet. She was struggling what to do with apples given in a goody bags when she visited her families and friends for Navarthri. @Gauri03 discards the excess fruits in a plastic bag tied to the fence of her house as 6 apple trees provide too many fruits two times every year. I am focused on how apple changed the humanity over several centuries in this snippet of mine. Despite all the warning, Adam was tempted to eat the forbidden apple resulting in the humanity created and struggling for its survival. He started the avalanche of humans having mind of their own. Over a period, they learned how to make fire and cook food. They lived in groups hunting for food and those men who stayed to protect women developed a habit of sleeping early and waking up early while those who went for hunting stayed awake into night and went to bed very early in the morning. Each group developed their own culture and values and slowly also developed languages to communicate with each other. Still they were awestruck by the nature and didn’t have the wherewithal to develop scientific invention and relied on scriptures to learn more about how the universe came into existence. They thought this beautiful planet is flat until the scientific invention began later. Men and women, out of curiosity began to explore how things work in this planet without anyone managing it like they manage their lives. One day, Sir Isaac Newton was watching how the apple fell from the tree. He didn’t sleep until he found out the reason for the fall of the fruit. He invented that this planet has gravity helping everything in the planet remain in its place. Men and women began researching making a scientific revolution from 1600 onward. Even though many have explored the concepts and shared their thoughts earlier, but scientists began to prove their inventions through experiments. Towards the end of 20th century, a man named Steve Jobs decided to develop a desktop publishing hardware and software that has fonts that looks like a typeset so that people in daily walks of life could use that for their marketing purposes. He named his company “Apple” and it revolutionized the entire world. Slowly the company developed into a giant corporation manufacturing arguably one of the best notebooks and phones besides developing a dedicated operating system for their product lines. i products have become extremely popular and sell in large quantities throughout the world and China became their destination for manufacturing notebooks and phones. Incidentally bitten apple which started the humanity became their famous logo. Let us get back to the fruit itself now. In China apple represent peace, and apple blossoms are a symbol of women's beauty. In other traditions, they can signify wisdom, joy, fertility, and youthfulness. Apples play an important part in several Greek myths. Hera (pronounced HAIR-uh), queen of the gods, owned some precious apple trees that she had received as a wedding present from Gaia (pronounced GAY-uh), the earth mother. Tended by the Hesperides (pronounced hee-SPER-uh-deez), the Daughters of Evening, and guarded by a fierce dragon, these trees grew in a garden somewhere far in the west. Their apples were golden, tasted like honey, and had magical powers. They could heal the sick or injured, they renewed themselves as they were eaten, and if thrown, they always hit their target and then returned to the thrower's hand. In Norse mythology, apples are a symbol of eternal youth. Legend says that the goddess Idun (pronounced EE-thoon) guarded the magical golden apples that kept the gods young. But after the trickster god Loki (pronounced LOH-kee) allowed Idun to be carried off to the realm of the giants, the gods began to grow old and gray. They forced Loki to recapture Idun from the giants. Celtic mythology also mentions apples as the fruit of the gods and of immortality, or the ability to live forever. “An apple a day keeps the doctor away" is an old Welsh proverb that most of us are familiar with, but what makes this fruit so special? What health benefits are associated with eating apples? Well, the forbidden fruit appears to be good for neurological health, prevents dementia, reduces the risk of stroke, lowers cholesterol, reduces the risk of diabetes, prevents obesity, prevents breast cancer, and many more. Since the forbidden fruit can’t defend itself from disdain, I am raising my feeble voice to defend it.
