At home with colors

Along with the water shortage in Chennai, came the colorful fluorescent storage pots, in bright orange, yellow, pink, stacked in a long winding queue behind the ubiquitous water tanker. It was almost like their way of highlighting that we were facing a serious water problem.

I had absolutely no idea about the shapes that these colors were going to take. In fact, I understood the word saturation when I saw a man walking proudly wearing a bright fluorescent yellow Lungi during the peak of a Chennai summer. I am not sure whether the emergence of the chat rooms and their font colors helped these colors gain acceptance from being used just for highlighting something to being the highlights themselves.

Just how colorful is colorful!
