Where Rainbows Begin

Life- a beautiful word, perhaps the most perplexing of all; it is a word that’s often misunderstood just like so many precious things in this world: peace, joy, and love.

The most significant aspect of life is that it’s replete with paradoxes, complications and contradictions. What is most fascinating is how people can have such a varied outlook towards the same things. The colours of the rainbow seem to represent these differences, they ‘reflect’ the two sides of the same coin called reality. Life, like good and evil, reality and people, is not all in black and white.   

When bright little rays of sunshine embrace fresh drops of water, we see a striking phenomenon that we call the rainbow; a spectrum of colours that can take your breath away.

Each colour can denote a myriad of emotions. Red may stand for love as well as anger; yellow for patience and happiness- if you notice, one stealthily follows the other. Green represents envy but one can associate it with a connection with nature.

Blue is the colour of the limitless sky of ambition while on the other hand it is also the colour of the ocean that is a symbol of depth; violet spells originality, orange reflects enthusiasm and indigo can be said to represent peace and beauty- it is, after all, in the eyes of the beholder.
