Green ๐Ÿ’š

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 Mayborn๐Ÿ˜Ž)

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!๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ˜‡

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? ๐Ÿ˜‡

No hate, All love

Yours ever freaking Honey๐Ÿ˜

  1. I did not know that Iโ€™ll end up loving an article written about a colour until I read this one. Iโ€™ve heard you talk about green like a million times and I think it wouldnโ€™t bother me even if you do the same a million times more because I can FEEL your passion for that colour every single time ๐Ÿ™‚ Personally, I think this is the most soulful post youโ€™ve written so far! Keep it up!

  2. Great I too love some shades of green but ur statement about Mercury is wrong!! He is not the messenger of dead he is the God of messengers!! He delivers messages everywhere and also he is the God of thieves!! Knowledgically if I remember him him good enough he is the dad of Luke castellan, who plays a major role in percy Jackson series!!! ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿค“

    1. Of course I too have read all Rick Riordan’s books! And of course I know he is god of messenger! But it is mentioned in the heroes of Olympus series that Hermes takes the dead people who have a gold penny to the tartarus where he can meet a ferry man who would take the dead further! Thus Hermes is also known as messenger of dead! As he acts as messenger for dead till they reach their destination ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Green is a nice color to like, no? I did not know all this trivia about it actually. It was fun to read your post. I enjoy green a lot because of nature. We have lots of plants and are surrounded by green all the time.

  5. My maternal grandmother also loved green! Her living room furniture was all green and the interior walls of her home were green! Also, I have noticed many walls are green of Russian buildings (as observed by watching โ€œBald and bankruptโ€ videos on YouTube). ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒณ

  7. Your essay on Green is excellent and well presented. The heart of green leaves with droplets of dew or rain is pure poetry. When I think of paradise, it starts with my garden and your conjuring the lash nature was beautiful. You have the ability to become a brilliant nature writer.

  8. Wonderful post. I have some clarity on astrology. Basically if mercury in our horoscope is functionally benefic planet,then green colour and green things are good but if it is malefic then vice versa is true. Thanks ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ‘

  9. Wow. You’ve really embraced this connection with green. It’s so sweet how it all started from childhood and has been cherished till date.
    Personally I love the green colour because of how calm it makes me feel and how it shows friendliness when I use it in texting or appreciating someone. Though the colour I have the most admiration for is blue

  10. Well composed blog! Yes almost every one has affinity towards one colour more than the other! Once you have an affinity you will find several reasons for it to be the “BEST”. I liked the aspect that you further delved into the ‘other’ side to Green! It shows clearly your way of looking to be balanced!! Incidentally I had composed a short poem – The Two Sides – I shall post it in my blog. You may visit it.

    Good writing Harini! Keep it up!
