CBC VIBGYOR BLOG TAG #7 | Red

This post is part of the Chennai Bloggers Club’s CBC VIBGYOR BLOG TAG where some of us will write a post on the colours of VIBGYOR each day starting 1st of September to the 7th of September.

The colour theme for today’s post is Red

Apples, Strawberries, Cherries, Maples, Chillies, Rubies, Blood, Tomatoes, Roses…

Red is surely the favourite colour of nature. Some of the best things of nature are red. 

Red also made our childhood awesome with Santa Claus, Little Red Riding Hood, Scarlet Pimpernel…

A symbol of celebration and auspiciousness, no festival is complete without involving the colour red. 

The colour of prestige, walking over the Red Carpet is considered an honour.

Cheers

God Bless

CBC VIBGYOR BLOG TAG #6 | Orange

This post is part of the Chennai Bloggers Club’s CBC VIBGYOR BLOG TAG where some of us will write a post on the colours of VIBGYOR each day starting 1st of September to the 7th of September.

The colour theme for today’s post is Orange

Orange – The colour of spirituality. Also that of dawn and dusk (The metaphor of life – birth and death).

Orange – Representing Sacrifice – one of the greatest virtue that can be possessed.

Orange – This word brings back the childhood memories of playing Oranges and Lemons, and the tug of war that continued after it. Awesome days those were!

Orange – For a foodie, it always means the wonder fruit and also the yummy carrot. And the hot spicy masala! + Fanta/Mirinda 😉

Cheers

God Bless

CBC VIBGYOR BLOG TAG #5 | Yellow

This post is part of the Chennai Bloggers Club’s CBC VIBGYOR BLOG TAG where some of us will write a post on the colours of VIBGYOR each day starting 1st of September to the 7th of September.

The colour theme for today’s post is Yellow

Yellow – a beautiful colour. Considered auspicious by moms, grandmoms and even McDonalds. The craze for ‘Yellow Stuffs’ in India is enormous. Starting from the humble turmeric, present in every Indian kitchen, to the lustrous metal Gold, which is also present in every Indian locker, yellow can be found everywhere. The lemons that hang in front of the vehicles, the saamandhi flowers that adorn the God portraits, the manja pai carried by some grandpas’, the smileys that add life to the comment battles in FB, our National Animal, above all (literally) our life giver – the Sun…the list can never end.

While sitting hopeless, still thinking about yellow, Google gives me a chance to add an yellow photo…:P

P.S: As moms and grandmoms say, Yellow is for Guru, for whom thursdays are dedicated. So yellow becomes doubly auspicious on thursdays. And today is thursday, also Teachers Day. Now that’s called coincidence! 😉

Cheers

God Bless

CBC VIBGYOR BLOG TAG #4 | Green

This post is part of the Chennai Bloggers Club’s CBC VIBGYOR BLOG TAG where some of us will write a post on the colours of VIBGYOR each day starting 1st of September to the 7th of September.

The colour theme for today’s post is Green

Green – my favourite colour. So much that I recognize any picture as ‘COMPLETE’ only if it has some shades of green. Settled cozily in the middle of the VIBGYOR spectrum, Green can easily be said as one of the most soothing colour, crowned as the colour of Mother Nature and the symbol of prosperity.

Cheers

God Bless

CBC VIBGYOR BLOG TAG #3 | Blue

This post is part of the Chennai Bloggers Club’s CBC VIBGYOR BLOG TAG where some of us will write a post on the colours of VIBGYOR each day starting 1st of September to the 7th of September.

The colour theme for today’s post is Blue

Blue – the most abundant colour in our planet. And the most favourite in our country. Thinking of blue made me realise that blue is present across the extremes of our lives and here goes a simple poem on it

As the sky above us

And the sea that surrounds.

Mighty as the Whale,

In the beauty of Morning Glory.

Terrorizing Monday mornings,

But still a favourite genre.

Not only the sparkles of sapphire,

But also the drops of Ujala.

The beauty of Blue,

Lies in its extremes.

Cheers

God Bless

CBC VIBGYOR BLOG TAG #2 | Indigo

This post is part of the Chennai Bloggers Club’s CBC VIBGYOR BLOG TAG where some of us will write a post on the colours of VIBGYOR each day starting 1st of September to the 7th of September.

The colour theme for today’s post is Indigo

Indigo…one of the most belittled colour. It is always associated with either of its neighbours – Violet or Blue. The Wikipedia page for Indigo mentions a quote – “It is customary to list indigo as a color lying between blue and violet, but it has never seemed to me that indigo is worth the dignity of being considered a separate color. To my eyes it seems merely deep blue.”, which stands witness for the treatment meted out to Indigo.

Anyway Indigo is very much a part of our daily lives. Right from the denim apparels to various other accessories, it abounds us.

And here comes my favourite Indigo thing, which I love to see and use often 😉

Cheers

God Bless

CBC VIBGYOR BLOG TAG #1 | Violet

This post is part of the Chennai Bloggers Club’s CBC VIBGYOR BLOG TAG where some of us will write a post on the colours of VIBGYOR each day starting 1st of September to the 7th of September.

The colour theme for today’s post is Violet

‘Violet’ reminds me of…

the lush Lavender fields in movies…

Violet Miss of 2nd std…

misspelling UltraViolet as UltraViolent…

the childhood joy, sighting a rainbow and trying to recall the colours , learnt in class…

 the delicious Yennai Kathrika cooked by grandma…

sorting Gems by colour and eating them…I do it even now 😉

Colour is one of the most beautiful thing in our lives. There are several things that are synonymous with the colour that they possess and are identified only by their shade. And i’m grateful to God for giving me the opportunity to view the colourful world, which sing glories to God, all time

Cheers

God Bless
