Lord Giveth, Lord Taketh, by Sankar Chatterjee

Rob picked up a cantaloupe and a watermelon from his neighborhood supermarket. While washing them, he noticed those small tags: “Product of Guatemala”. His mind drifted to the time he was exploring the beauty of Guatemalan highlands with Mr. Gonzalez. As they crisscrossed, Rob noticed stretching farmlands, not far from the mountains. Mr. Gonzalez explained that many of the mountains were historic dormant volcanoes. Spewed lava destroyed nearby habitats repeatedly, while enriching the soil with minerals several miles away, thus making it fertile to farm fruits and vegetables for distant humanity.

Mr. Gonzalez then philosophically murmured, “Lord taketh, Lord Giveth!”
