The turnip is also a root vegetable, like the carrot. However, the turnip symbolizes a different aspect of human dynamics. It means to show gratitude to a stranger or strangers, for their help. If in waking life, you have received assistance from strangers, pay your respects to them, to show your gratitude. The strangers do not expect repayment in exact measure, but they need affirmation that their acts of kindness are appreciated, least they turn insensitive due to apathy. It is difficult to meet altruistic philanthropists so we must treasure them to encourage them.
