The lotus, a symbol of the goddess of wealth and prosperity Lakshmi, is also the national flower of India. It has long been said that the lotus’ growth from deep mud has symbolic significance, as beauty can bloom from any condition. In India, lotus roots are also consumed as side dishes to rice or various types of bread, and they are also used to make pickle.
