A sneak peek for the upcoming design by our executive members. Objects connotes many different signs holding meanings. Therefore, life is full of symbols. For the moment, the article tells us what does bamboo signifies and what can we relate this object to our lives as a university student?
Bamboo is a giant species of Poaceae grass family plan also known as Bambuseae. It is evident that bamboo is a plant of great value to a country, particularly countries in Southeast Asia in terms of economic or cultural aspects. It is one of the fastest growing plants in the world! There are various species of Bamboo growing around the world, including in cold-climate countries. Some even live in the four seasons such as the Alata, yellow groove and spectabilis.
Bamboo has its own unique character. To the Chinese people, bamboo is a symbol of virtue and it reflects people’s souls and emotions. But as undergraduates students, Dependability in a bamboo actually symbolizes the strength that every student should have, in that students should be prepared mentally and physically to face the world which is full of challenges.
As most of us are aware of, the bamboo cannot live on its own. It generally grows in clusters, and this reflects us. We don’t face university life alone. Many others are experiencing it with us, including our family members and friends. This indicates harmony in life and the bonds formed with each other.
Bamboo has a variety of uses. For example, it can be used as building material to make houses, musical instruments and more. This symbolizes the variety of functions the University has in producing youths with various abilities and skills in their respective fields as their contribution to the country.
Bamboo also symbolizes the strength of relationship. The bamboo shoots need each other in whatever situation and this shows the high spirit of teamwork. This is an attitude that every undergraduate should have at the university. Instead of only depending on one’s self, we must learn to rely on each other as a community. In the end, this is one of the most important lessons that we can learn as a student in Universiti Brunei Darussalam and as a part of an association, Persatuan Mahasiswa/I Universiti Brunei Darussalam.
