Must read

I love reading, writing and of course, talking! I also love travelling and trying out new adventurous things.

” I kind of view everybody like a rainbow. Everybody on the planet has all the colors of the rainbow inside. “

– Alexia Fast
When we were kids, we often thought the world was full of characters in either black or white. As we grew, this thought was replaced by the realization that no one is actually perfect – only grey characters exist. But, come to think of it, isn’t each person a rainbow? Can you define a person using just a colour, grey in this case? Is not man a rainbow? One of emotions, experiences and beliefs?


Violet sparks imagination and inspiration. When we feel low, some things keep us from falling apart, let whatever it be. These things are represented by violet. The darker tones of violet are associated with sorrow, bringing to mind the darker times one has gone through. Also, violet symbolizes nobility – the sacrifices that one has to make in life. What is less appealing is that this colour also represents the impractical and cynical side of a person.


IndigoIndigo symbolizes wisdom, intuition, and self-mastery. it is often referred to as a representation of infinity. Don’t we sometimes feel proud of how wise, certain decisions we took were? This colour represents both the wiser, intuitive part as well as the fanatical, inconsiderate and fearful part of a person.

Blue stands for patience, trust and loyalty. It is an embodiment of the peace and understanding that each person craves for, deep inside. The compassionate being inside a person is another thing that this color represents. Blue also stands for the deceitful, conservative and emotionally unstable condition of a person.

Green denotes growth, balance, health and wealth. The prosperity and harmony that this color represents is what man strives for. It is the color of Mother Nature, and hence life itself. Green thus stands for the happier side of a person. Surprisingly, green also represents possessiveness, greed and envy.

Yellow, the colour of sunshine itself, depicts clarity of thought, orderliness and most importantly, energy. The hope that one holds on to for going on with life. Yellow thus stands for the determination of a person, helping one to go on no matter what. However, yellow also represents one’s judgemental,pessimistic and cowardly side.

Orange portrays creativity, joy, playfulness and youth. It represents the part of a person that helps to hold on to practicality. It stands for fascination and success, but at the same time also for superficiality, insincerity and excessive pride about oneself.

Red is a dynamic colour that embodies powerful emotions – love, courage, passion, vibrancy and might. Haven’t we all, at some time or the other, felt them? At other times, red has warned us to stay away from some things, to be careful. It is also widely known that red represents anger, brutality and violence.
 A rainbow always look beautiful , no matter in what space and time it comes. We are a combination of this rainbow and that is why we are beautiful in our souls. All we need is to recognize that beauty.
Terri Windling, an author once said that rainbows deliver this message to him – ” The universe is a mystery and you’re part of it. Let us take pride in being the mysteries we are.”
