Pomegranate: Seeds of Knowledge

“Take this Pomegranate as a token of our gratitude!” Surprised and a little confused, I thanked this kind Greek lady and held this mysterious looking piece of fruit in my hand. “Why a pomegranate?” I asked the girl with a curious tone in my voice. Smiling back at me she explained that in Greece the pomegranate fruit symbolises luck, new beginnings, well wishes and is given to people on special occasions and/or life defining chapters such as child birth, weddings, graduations, a new job. It’s a way to say ‘thank you’ and ‘good luck’. The pomegranate seeds resemble the days of your life- each seed being an ambassador of the possibilities you can embrace.

Pomegranate fruit symbolises luck, new beginnings, well wishes

Driving away from Idomeni, with the fading image of the refugee camp still in sight. I looked at my Pomegranate, my gift, from all angles, curious what it may bring into my life. As soon as I reached my hotel in Thessaloniki, I started to research the cultural symbolism of this interesting red fruit. It turned out that the pomegranate, anar, رمان , grenade, Granatapfel…carries not just a cultural and religious symbolism in Greece but in many parts of our colourful planet, such as India, Afghanistan & Turkey. Interestingly, it is mentioned in religious scripts of the Abrahamic religions. In art, fashion, health & beauty ‘the Pomegranate’ is all around us.

Returning to Dubai no time was wasted. My friend and business partner Marie and I started working on our project, our business and our passion ‘The Pomegranate Institute’. Connecting people through language, culture, customs and lifestyle.

We are blessed and thankful to be in the UAE and created a concept that will adapt to the dynamic heartbeat of Dubai.
