I have seen many people plucking flowers from the other peoples garden or from public gardens. On confronting these people, the general answer is that they are plucking the flowers for God/Puja.
- Does god want us to pluck flowers?
- Does god teach us to steal flowers from public or other peoples gardens?
How religion has made people twisted and dumb, this is a classic example of that. How people are lazy and looking for short cuts even in prayers, is totally appalling.
