During this joyous festival of beaming diyas and vibrant colours, rangoli has and will always be an inevitable fragment. The two rangolis depicted in the pictures above, illuminate exceptionally important lessons of life- The cruciality of the variety of colours. The second one seems to be more elaborate as compared to the first one, whereas the third one remains the most intricated and beautiful one. This is only due to the addition in the range of colours and the art of blending it appropriately. Correspondingly, our life is also box of the most expansive assortment of colours. It only varies depending upon the number of colours and the art of blending that we use based upon the situation.
Life is about using that whole box of crayons!!
Life is like a rangoli… We have the power to fill it with any kind of colours we desire, in order to make it look beautiful. Sometimes, it does happen that a slight variation in the appropriate colour or blend of the rangoli, completely spoils it (like sometimes, small problems create a havoc in our lives!) but we even have the power to recreate it in a way we want since colours don’t need any design to look beautiful!
The Cryptic Colours
Colours, together are a pertinent portrayal of the situations in our life which consists of soothing as well as trying times. But we must always remember that life is like a rainbow… you need both sun and rains to make the colour appear! Dark and difficult days (like dark colours) when remembered once in a while, make the brighter ones (like light or bright colours) shine. But considering the lighter days as a part of the darker days, just makes everything black. (Like a drop of blank paint when added to white , gives a soothing grey… but a drop of white paint added to black, makes everything black)
In nature, light creates the colour. In the picture of life, the colour creates the light.
