feeling red.


all of a sudden i am feeling so bright and colourful!! i can see bright and rejuvenating colours all around me and it makes me happy.. 🙂
especially red.. i love red right now.!! i feel so red. you can call it love, rage, aggression, sacrifice, passion,pain, danger- call it whatever you want.. i just feel it all around me. my favorite colour has always been blue and it still is.. but today- today is a red day and it is the day for me to feel red!! (i’m not sure if that makes sense, but in case it doesn’t-bare with me) i guess the fact that my bedroom wall is red, i currently have a red bedsheet and red pillows, i am wearing red nailpolish might be a cause for my redness.!! did you know red also consists of the longest wavelength of light discernible to the human eye? that is why it is used in the RGB colour systems. also there is something called the Red Hat Society which is apparently the largest women’s social group in the world.
Wikipedia says, “The Red Hat Society (RHS) is a social organization, founded in 1998, for women approaching the age of 50 and beyond. As of January 2011, there are over 70,000 registered members and almost 24,000 chapters in the United States and 25 other countries. The Red Hat Society is the largest women’s social group in the world.” cool huh??

  • there are 51 (FIFTY ONE!!) varieties/shades of red.
  • Red also means beautiful in Russian.
  • The word ruby comes from the Latin word rubens, meaning red.
  • The color red doesn’t really make bulls angry; They are color-blind.
  • The red stripes on the United States Flag stand for courage.
  • Chinese brides traditionally wear red wedding dresses for good luck.
  • Seeing the color red can make your heart beat faster.
  • Bindi‘s worn by Indian women are traditionally red.

red is such a beautiful colour and it symbolizes so many different things in different parts of the world. when i get up tomorrow morning i may no longer be fascinated by the colour red but as of today, it is all i am thinking about!!

  1. No words…just go Red!
    Skimmed thru RHS’ wiki page… interesting concept…maybe my mom shud join that…She’s one happy lady…she might go on to share few smiles there..

  2. red apparently also instigates the hunger pangs and makes people more hungry… thats why franchisees like Mcdonalds, KFC and pizza hut use red in their logos and mastheads!!
