I’m better known as “green freak” more than by my name “Harini” among my friends.
The love for green has prevailed right from the very first memory I have in this earthly life. I was two and a half year old when I joined my kindergarten. On the very first day of admission,my parents and my class teacher stood by the door as I ran inside the classroom full of colourful baby chairs and made myself comfortable on a GREEN baby chair, indeed it was a throne for me!
From that day till today this special connection has lasted the same. Green may be just a colour for others but for me it’s a way of life! It is a feeling. It acts as an inexplicable cure for any of my situation. I get overwhelmed everytime I see green, it calms my soul and eases out all of my worries. I lose myself in it and discover my newself in it.
I can speak of it the whole day and still will be left with stuffs unsaid about my connection with green!
Green a cure!
Green depicts nature!Imagine a sight of dense green forest lushy with thick leaves as canopies providing us a cool environment to stroll through and thin leaves waving us breeze and soft grasses tickling our barefoot , a smell of meadow and a melancholic music playing behind invisibly. Aah! wasn’t it great?
It is a sacred colour to Egyptians and Muslims! It is a depiction of fertility, renewal,spring and good luck. Bible says green is a depiction of immortality and resurrection!
Probably it not only soothes my soul! Researchers say that green is the most restful colour to human eye.It is used in hospitals as it is believed to soothe pain, and most recommended colour in workplaces and school. As survey says people working in green environment are very efficient,innovative and it also increases reading ability and grasping power.
One of my recent discoveries was that the precious EMERALD STONE is a birthstone of Mayborns! May be it was just a coincidence or maybe a superstitious reason behind my love for green! (Because I’m a Mayborn😎)
Green an evil!
In the Roman mythology green was considered as a “forebode of death “as this colour had a connection with the worship of Mercury who is considered to be the messenger of dead!
The famous saying “Green eyed monster ” portrays green as a symbol of jealousy!
Radium,Paris green and copper hydrogenated arsenic were deadly poisons, sadly they were in the shades of green. That gave cancer. Napoleon is said to have been poisoned to death by sleeping in a green wall papered room.
Even the ever famous Harry Potter books depicted green house (Slytherin)as an evil by adding all the baddies in that house (just for laugh,no offence meant)
There are always two sides to any situation and certainly green has not been an exception in it!😈😇
Anything it might be, my love for green is not going to change any sooner or even later! Because it’s not just my “favourite” it’s a ” way of my life “
I’m very keen to know is anyone as crazy as me about green or it’s just me? And the next question, Is lunacy for favourite colour common or again it’s just me?
Who knows? 😇
No hate, All love
Yours ever freaking Honey😍
