Sultana’s dream and nature

“We do not covet other people’s land, we do not fight for a piece of diamond though it may be a thousandfold brighter than the Koh-i-Noor, nor do we grudge a ruler his peacock Throne. We dive deep into the ocean of knowledge and try to find out the precious gems [that] Nature has kept in store for us. We enjoy Nature’s gifts as much as we can”(Hossain 8).

This passage in Sultana’s dream creates a tapestry of rich imagery, and uses particularly¬†vivid metaphors, While reading this quote clearly stood out to me as an important passage of the text.
