The idea of proportion

A man once laughed at God for giving the majestic banyan tree a tiny molecular seed and conferring the Ash Gourd a gigantic uncouth fruit. “No sense of proportion,” he told God, the creator. However, this man had to sleep once under the shade of a banyan tree and when he woke up after an hour or so, he saw a large quantity of seeds that had fallen all over him. If only the banyan tree had seeds in proportion to its size, a single seed falling from that height would have killed the critic in no time ! Realising this, he apologised to God for his poor sense of logic and moved away perfectly safe.
