Originating in the Greek language, the delta triangle is a symbol of change with a little gap on one side representing an openness to whatever may come our way.

The first time a baby tastes medicine, he cries. So he's pacified with something sweet. In the absence of sweet, water is offered to dilute the drug's bitterness. And eventually it disappears. So does the baby's tears. All, with time. Nobody teaches him to cry when the first drop of that dark liquid grazes his lips. He does so because…

Certain words in the English vocabulary transcend the importance of being emphasised upon. They encompass, within their few letters, such depth and significance, that their explanations suffer from the want of more.
