Color Color Which Color Do You Want?

It gives an awesome feeling when we see colors. Just imagine that our mood is not in our control and suddenly you see a rainbow, for a while you will forget everything and keep staring at the rainbow. Yes, that’s the beauty of colors. Colors make our mind free. It enhances our mood. Our life is like a blank canvas and we have to fill these with beautiful colors.

Every person has their favorite colors but some people love colors according to their personality. The people who are strong enough have dark colors as their favorite. Many people believe that black color is unlucky. But those who have tenacity in life consider black color as their personality. I like black color too. A very dark pitch, shiny black color. It looks resplendent. I prefer my accessories to be in black, like shoes, hand bags, etc. Because it looks gorgeously stunning and also this color matches with any dress.

Colors are classified as per gender too. Pink for girls and blue for boys. Black and White for widows. But being a girl, I personally don’t favor pink at all. Pink is ok, cute. But I find this color very dull and boring. I chose blue to pink. Blue, on the other hand, gives relaxation to the eyes. Blue is cool. Blue has various variant. But pink variants are mundane . But seriously, I don’t know who made this color gender. I mean why can’t boys opt for pink? Why such gender partiality? and for girls, all colors are allowed except for black and white (only if they are married). Well, there are some offices where boys are not allowed to wear pink shirts. Yes, it’s true.

Sometimes I feel bad for boys. In umbrella selection, Girls have many options. But boys have only one and that is black. Well, I know boys don’t care about colors when it comes to things like umbrellas. But at least girls’ umbrellas don’t get stolen because of unique colors and patterns. Ha Ha! anyways, its a color discrimination against men. In the case of wallets, I like men’s wallets rather than women. Because it is easy to carry and fits easily in pockets. I know I can buy that, But girls’ costumes don’t have pockets. True. Reason is, if girls’ costumes start having pockets then the sale of handbags will decrease and hence no pockets. Yes, this is the reason. In Girls’ jeans also, It has pockets but just for show. Can’t even keep mobile in it.

Some people hate some colors as if that color has done something to their life. Many people avoid red. They have many beliefs against that color. Just imagine what if red was human. Even though it is the primary color, even though no other color can make red, even though it is the color of attraction and yet people point at it and say “I will get killed by a bull, if I wear you”.. Thank God! These colors are not human.

Some people love the Golden color a lot. But they think they look rich if they wear Golden dress, Golden shoes, Golden purse. Well someone will abduct you, thinking you are wearing real gold. But seriously, We girls have this weird habit of wearing everything in Gold just to look rich. Well, Huh, No comments, looks good on you, You wear, I will wear black. Contrast matching.

All colors have emotions attached to it. But I still don’t understand why? I mean, red is anger, danger but we also have red-colored hearts i.e. love. So Is red, anger or love? Same way, Black is sad but also classic and professional. Ha Ha ! oxymoron right ? Like our life. Obviously, I don’t give a fig about the emotions. I just love the way the colors are.  Just wear them along with a smile. Enjoy your day and make life colorful. To conclude, always play the color game, “Color Color Which Color Do You Want?”

Thinking and writing about colors, The Holi festival is just around the corner. Play safe Holi, and do read my memories on Holi

The Colored Faces Memories.

Its 2021 and this year too we are celebrating festivals in a dull manner with increasing numbers of Covid patients.  Ya,  the same covid and blah blah. We don’t need any explanation now on what is Holi or Dhulivandhan or Holika. The Holi festival reminds me of 1990s day where there was no rain dance or DJ. It was just water, water balloons and hell lots of “chipku” colors (The colors which takes time to go off).

But, to be honest,  I use to love this chipku colors coz it was funny to see colored faces next day in school.  We hardly use to recognized our own friends and later we use to laugh coz we played with some other kids.

Yes,  there were some cons too.  We used dirty muddy water and even threw eggs.  The most nostalgic thing in Holi was to get up early in morning just to fill bucket full of water balloons.  But right now,  all these things are ban (but not in between us). So instead came rain dance and DJ.  Today, everybody loves this rain dance and DJ.  But one things I like about today’s Holi is the different types of gadgets for kids. Like Water Gun in form of pretty bag or Riffle Gun. So I bought one water gun bag for my daughter. She was very happy but it became heavy after filling water in it. And I was the one, behind her, carrying that bag and she targeted me only.

The Colored Faces Memories


Back in 1990s, we had this silver color. The friend is “Ghost” when his/her face gets covered by this silver color. The one who has this color, we use to refer  him/her as “Ameer Dost (rich friend) “.

To maintain the clean face was very big task then, coz school had this strict rule that student will be punished if his/her face is not clear. So we use to apply oil on our face before playing with colors. Or keep on cleaning the face with good water. And  We even used shampoo.

But Still one corner use to left behind. Mostly, that corner was ears. But we didn’t care of ears and thank god for the colored ears n not the face.

Memories. Memories.. Those days will not come back. But still we can recreate it. Waiting for covid to go.. N silver color to come back to life. 

Holi Hai Bhai Holi Hai, Bura Na Mano Holi hai. 

(Please don’t mind, It’s Holi festival)

Good Friday – March 25, 2016.

Good Friday is observed on the Friday before Easter Sunday. There are a few theories about why Good Friday is called ‘Good Friday‘ probably because ‘good‘ is used to mean ‘holy‘ and that terrible Friday is called ‘Good Friday’ because it led to the Resurrection of Jesus and his victory over death and sin and the celebration of Easter, the very pinnacle of Christian celebrations.

Rangapanchami – March 28, 2016

Rangapanchami is celebrated on the fifth day (Panchami) in the dark fortnight of the Hindu lunar month. This bliss is celebrated by throwing colours in the air. Thus, Rang Panchami is a symbol of victory over raja tama.

The festival is particularly popular amongst fisher folk. They celebrate it in on a large scale and revel in the festivities by singing, dancing and merry-making. This special dance provide them means to release all their repressed feelings, needs and desires. People also utter sound through their mouths in a peculiar fashion by striking their mouths with the back of their hands.

The festival of Rangapanchami is also associated with Holi festival but is not very popular as it is more of a traditional festival and is limited to Maharashtra. Some people confuse Rang Panchami with the Holi festival that is celebrated with colors the day after the lighting of fires. The Rangpanchami festival is more closely associated with rural Marathi culture.
