t's a 'plop'
and the children
rush for it


Poet's Notes about The Poem

WORLD COCONUT DAY TODAY Coconut day on 2nd
September. This day is celebrated to spread an
awareness about the importance of coconut and
to encourage investors to invest in the growth of
this sector. The theme of this year's celebration is
‘Inclusive Growth and Sustainable Development
of the Coconut Industry'.Coconut is regarded as a
life-giving fruit for its amazing properties. Here
we explore some of the unique qualities of this
blessed fruit. Coconut reduces obesity. The
fat in it reduces the bad cholesterol and increases
the good cholesterol, thereby benefiting the
over-all health of a person. As coconut oil is heart-
healthy, its known to prevent a number of heart
ailments too. A cup of shredded coconut contains
17% copper,11% potassium,5% zinc,10% iron,6% magnesium,11%
selenium,9% phosphorus and 60% manganese,
which is necessary for daily-consumption. Raw
coconut, if consumed, reduces the pathogens in
the body and boosts the immune system. So, regular consumption of coconut can ward off cold, cough and viruses. It shelters the body from deadly diseases and boosts the metabolism level, thereby extracting excess weight from the body. Moreover, coconut proves to be beneficial in relieving constipation as the fiber in it assists in digestion. Coconut milk is
rich in iron and phosphorus which helps in building strong bones and preventing anemia. Coconut oil is also useful in treating malnutrition as it
improves the absorption of minerals and vitamins. Coconut is a good option to subside your hunger quickly as it provides abundant energy and makes you feel full. The selenium in coconut milk helps in preventing joint inflammation which could lead to arthritis. Coconut is non-toxic and it does not deplete the body's anti-oxidant reserve like other oils do. They are also good for de-worming as its consumption can flush out various parasites from the intestinal tract. Coconut water is also known for its cooling properties and its consumption is suggested by doctors when someone's affected by chicken pox. It also improves insulin secretion and glucose utilization in the body. The miracles of this blessed fruit are many and it's time for you to explore them. — with Prince Yogesh, Tanu Agrawal, Shah Suhaan and 48 others
