The Colour of Soul

Where do colours come from? Where are they present actually?

Are they present in our brain or in our eyes or on the objects? There is no answer for this actually. Nobody knows what the real blue is.

The Colour of Soul

“What is the colour of a soul?” The best answer I could give is “Mirror-Color”. So it could reflect our own colour, we always see our perspectives reflected back. Isn’t it?

Are you one among many who hype a lot about skin complexion?

Scientifically, Logically and Spiritually there is no color but perceptions.

Who taught us Dark complexion is not good? Especially the Indian mindset! They dictate Dark and Ugly are proportional to each other. Sick mindset isn’t it?

In the past 7 weeks, then 7 days and now instant fairness creams are available in the market. Do we need one? 🙂

We can find moon beautiful only in the dark sky. So what makes us love moon? Moon’s Brightness or Sky’s Darkness?

The point is, we should learn to love things as a whole, as what they are. The difference begins in our perspective but not in the nature.

Every one of us are colourful, picked from a palette of million colors processed in a factory 100 billion cells called “Brain” with the help of our 576 Mega Pixels camera called “Eyes”. We should learn to open our minds to the truth.

The is no colour, but our perceptions. There exists no reason to hate, also we need no reason love one another 🙂

Kudos : Inspirational Story of a Girl Born in Red Light Area

Shweta KattiFor every bad thing that happens in one part of the world, there is a beautiful thing happening somewhere else.

Shweta Katti was born in Mumbai’s Kamathipura red light district. Today, the 19 year old is one of only 6 recipients to receive the United Nations Youth Courage Awards for 2014.

Growing up in a poor family, in the lofts of a brothel, she often snuck into the rooms to watch Bollywood movies. Her story is nothing short of a movie script.

As a child, she saw hard days especially with a violent step father. Growing up in a brothel can hardly be good for any child, but she recounts how the sex workers were always protective of her, and how she celebrated all the festivals with them. It hurt when she walked on the roads, and got jeered and called names like “black dung” because of her skin colour. She says it’s probably why she became a more reserved person and suffered from low self esteem.

Then she began studying in an NGO, Kranti, and last year got global attention when she gained a full scholarship in Bard’s College in USA.

In March, she delivered a TEDX talk to a massive crowd in India on empowerment issues, and later Newsweek declared her as one of their “25 Under-25 Young Women to Watch” a list that also included Malala Yousufzai. This, for her heroic efforts to break the social stigma associated with Dalits, a sub-caste considered “untouchable” in India, and to not only pursue an education abroad, but also become a representative of a repressed community.

In Sep 2014, Shweta went up on stage to receive the prestigious UN Youth Courage Awards from former UK PM Gordon Brown, to a standing ovation and resounding applause from the crowd.

Shweta, all of 19, is still studying at Bard’s College. Her closest friends are two girls from Bangladesh and Tibet. Not only does she make the two of them watch Bollywood movies, but has herself joined Bard’s College Bollywood Dance Club.

We are proud of you, Shweta. Stay happy.

Story : Look Problem from the Other’s View

When I was in elementary school, I got into a major argument with a boy in my class. I have forgotten what the argument was about, but I have never forgotten the lesson I learned that day.

I was convinced that “I” was right and “he” was wrong – and he was just as convinced that “I” was wrong and “he” was right. The teacher decided to teach us a very important lesson.

She brought us up to the front of the class and placed him on one side of her desk and me on the other. In the middle of her desk was a large, round object. I could clearly see that it was black. She asked the boy what color the object was. “White,” he answered.

I couldn’t believe he said the object was white, when it was obviously black! Another argument started between my classmate and me, this time about the color of the object.

The teacher told me to go stand where the boy was standing and told him to come stand where I had been. We changed places, and now she asked me what the color of the object was. I had to answer, “White.”

It was an object with two differently colored sides, and from his viewpoint it was white. Only from my side it was black.

Black or White

Sometimes we need to look at the problem from the other person’s view in order to truly understand his/her perspective.

Video : Shopping while Black, Stand up Against Racism

“Shopping while black” is a phrase commonly used for the type of marketplace discrimination that is also called “consumer racial profiling”, “consumer racism” or “racial profiling in a retail setting”. Shopping while black describes the experience of being denied service or given poor service because one is black.

This Social Experiment shows how people reacts to it. Less than 20% took a stand against it. Though it’s less, we feel glad about the 20 percent. We need more people to join the stand against Racism. After all we are the same Human beings. 

PEACE AND LOVE 🙂

Add Colours to life, look beyond what our eyes can see :)

Colours – The Mysteries around us. Spreading across a huge spectrum, everything in our world has colours to it. Flowers, trees, skies, seas, animals, soils and anything that we can see has colours. Imagine what if the world goes monochrome! Or colourless. That would be the beginning of the collapse, maybe.

How we see colours needs a bit education about the optic study of our eyes and how it works with the brain to see the colours.

Colour is actually just reflected wavelengths of light. The white light is all the colours together and black is no light at all. We see different colours because there are different wavelengths of light and our eyes are able to see a broad range of them. When we see the other colours what is basically happening is the object is absorbing all the colours (wavelengths) except for the colour we see. For instance, a blue object looks blue because it absorbs all the light except for the blue light. To us, it looks blue. And also it can happen only if our brain can interpret the respective wavelength as blue.

For instance the blue what I see may not be the same blue you see, we will have slight variation according to our individual brain’s capability. However we humans have a common range of colours that we can see. An interesting fact is except for mammals like Apes, Monkeys and Chips other animals cannot see the colours same as what we see. That means they can see only a few colour differences. See the chart below.

ANIMAL THE COLORS THEY SEE
SPIDERS (jumping spiders) ULTRAVIOLET AND GREEN
INSECTS (bees) ULTRAVIOLET, BLUE, YELLOW
CRUSTACEANS (crayfish) BLUE AND RED
CEPHALOPODS (octopi and squids) BLUE ONLY
FISH MOST SEE JUST TWO COLORS
AMPHIBIANS (frogs) MOST SEE SOME COLOR
REPTILES (snakes) SOME COLOR AND INFRARED
BIRDS FIVE TO SEVEN COLORS
MAMMALS (cats) TWO COLORS BUT WEAKLY
MAMMALS (dogs) TWO COLORS BUT WEAKLY
MAMMALS (rabbit) BLUE AND GREEN
MAMMALS (squirrel) BLUES AND YELLOWS
MAMMALS (primates-apes and chimps) SAME AS HUMANS
MAMMALS (African monkeys) SAME AS HUMANS
MAMMALS (South American monkeys) CAN’T SEE RED WELL

This infers a great insight to all of us that in reality there are no Brown, white or black among races in people exists. This is the fact. White people are white because their skin tone absorbs all other wavelengths than white, black people are black because their skin tone absorbs all other wavelengths than black, same happens to brown or whatever colour tone people has. So what is the original colour? Black people are not black in real, white people are not white in real, Brown are not brown in real. Well our colours do not exist at all and nobody can say it. The colours will change if our brain’s capability to read the wavelength changes. 

That might be the reason why all animals see humans as a single creature without any partiality for races and colours. Our pets love us whether we are black or brown or white. They feel us the same.

We have a unique gifted ability to read millions of colours. We can see the rainbows, we can see the parakeet’s beautiful feathers, we can the waterfalls divine white, we can see the underwater so deep and what else left for us to blame that we cannot see? Almost nothing.

Animals can see less that might be why they feel more and appreciate more, we can see more but we are feeling less than what we should have been. We can do wonders if we ignore our differences by races, colours, religions, nationalities and whatever it splits us. We can unify ourselves as just humans. We can see what the rest of the millions of the species on the earth cannot see, even we have grown far intelligent to see what nature has not allowed us to see, we have microscopes to see the smallest. Telescopes to see the farthest, infra-red views to see through the dark but all we need is to open our soul to see the things which are so close to us.

We cannot defy ourselves for a long time, at some point we need to unify as humans stop fighting, cheating and behaving selfishly. Why not we do it when the clock is ticking NOW?
