Found growing wild in village tanks, boys with enterprise in their blood, wade into the waters to pluck buckets full of lotus flowers which they take to temple and sell to devotees. A flower of worship used by Buddhists and Hindus, the lotus is found on ancient temple paintings and its flower petals motifs are sculptured on moonstones.
