She was thirsty. Very thirsty. Every cell of her body was craving for just a drop of water. The sun was sucking every drop of water out of her, thus making the air more and more humid, while making her more and more water-deficient.
Her body was slowly turning fragile, pale and lifeless. Her beauty was withering away. The spring of her life had been transformed into autumn. She was losing all hope. She thought her end was near.
Suddenly there came a thunderous noise from the sky that said: “Don’t worry child, you will live. You are yet to bear billions of sons and daughters whose destinies have been pre-decided. Be patient. Life is on its way!! ”
And immediately, a drop of water fell off from the sky. Followed by another. And within the next few seconds, it was heavily pouring. The promise had been fulfilled. Her patience bore fruit. She was full of life again. The spring had returned. Mother Earth looked more beautiful than ever!
