Hues ’08 !

The new year dawns on us like a lotus that is blooming. Just as the first rays of the skin kiss the rose coloured petals shimmering in the blue water of a still lake, the lotus responds to the distant sun. Blooming and beaming. And that is a sight for the eye.

As the monsoon showers hit our mountain ranges, from every piece of land and & crevice ‘green’ sprouts. A green response to dark clouds that connect up with silver streaks of rain !

The red that runs beneath doesnt change colour despite sporting white, brown or black skin ! And envy is green and love is a shade of red ! And the human mind is multi-hued. Especially so, when not clouded.

As the white polar ice sinks into the blue ocean, the black dotted panther is feeling the heat somewhere !

As the one white light that gets split into many hues, the many colours dominate our lives, our thoughts, our moods and perhaps our actions. Just as we recognise the vibrancy of each colour of the world, lets also keep in our minds that what we see and relish is just one splinter of a broader hue.

All of us are connected. May the year ’08 show us the way to greater connectedness. Of holding to each other. Of being able to see all the different colours and see it with the belief & understanding that it is but a part of a broader hue. And that one colour leads to many other colours. And that a solitary colour by itself is small change unless seen with other colours !

Welcome ’08. May we see many hues when we are with you. May we accept all hues as extensions of our own. May each of us do our bit. That when we look back, we say, ” ah ’08, that was the year that the we saw all hues distinctly but remembered to put it all together. “

“Back together “.

Wishing all readers a very happy new year !
