For years, around forests of Arunachal Pradesh’s Ziro Valley, the kiwi would grow wild. It still does, in fact.

There are two ways to live life. Accept what you have got in your plate or stress over it. When you accept what you have got in your plate, you can enhance it. For example, when you are looking for a pizza, but you are served with bread which does not have cheese or any taste which you were actually visualizing.
