The Forbidden Seeds
“Don’t eat the seeds, Varun,” his father told, seeing him bite into an apple.
Varun was confused, and asked, “Why not, Papa?”
“If you do, an apple tree will grow from your stomach.”
“Papa, then why did you eat the watermelon seeds?”
Varun laughed, and saw his father, who had a pot belly, smiling back.
