Technically, Bamboo is a grass and it is highly desirable due to its fast growth. Many believe that it is because of this quality that the Bamboo plant has come to signify many things to different people. In fact, various countries feature the Bamboo plant in their creation stories and some of the tales are very similar. In the Andaman Islands, a group of islands in the Bay of Bengal, it is believed that the first people emerged from the stem of a Bamboo plant. The Philippines also have a similar creation tale to tell. The Philippine story tells of the first man and woman emerging from a Bamboo stem. In Malaysia, the story is the same. The tale is of a man who fell asleep under the shade of a Bamboo tree. While he slept, he dreamt of a beautiful woman. When he awoke, he opened the Bamboo tree and found the woman inside.
