Color

Was tagged by Neeku few weeks back to write a Short Story on my favorite color. It is a tough tag and I have written and deleted two stories as they did not seem to make sense. Will give it one more try and post something soon.

Meanwhile yesterday a friend forwarded this video - maybe many of you have already seen it - but for the benifit of those who havent - sharing it here - its a real eye opener and worth "watching".



Am thankful today that I can see the COLORS of life.

great video, thanks for sharing it! We unfortunately have tendency to take our sight as granted, we should enjoy it even more.

Abreysham said...

oh god- and to think of how we abuse our eyes by looking too closely at our PSPs and reading well into the night or watching movies after a hard day's work at the PC and driving all around town at all times of day.

τ ħ€ ĐάЎđяёάmёя said...

kya jhakkas foto lagayela hai bade miyan :P

Hiren said...

We cannot thank enough to HIM for the way we are blessed ... when i see some small children begging alms on signals etc ... i just try to compare ... wat was i doing when i was of this age ... probably crying for not eating the healthy food items prepared for me ... or crying for not going to school etc ...

But sadly most of us take for granted all the comforts we have got in life and whine about trivial things ...

:-(

KP said...

good one:). very touching:). story on colors will be interesting read:).

Preethi said...

That was truly touching...... i always carry my eye donation card in my purse. Haven't told anybody at home that i have registered for it. Don't know if they can see what i see.....

and hey BTW where is the wine discussion in Ambrosia.. i thought i'll find it there..... anyway really great job there

ceedy said...

@cess
Glad you liked the video and yes we should live our lives to the fullest.

ceedy said...

@singlendacity89

sorry t omake you cry - that was not my intention - but yes it is an eyeopener.

Hope you are doing well...have been busy

Thanks for the pic - resembles NY right - movement, lights and speed :)

ceedy said...

@pavi!!!!!
yup....we get involved in solving or worry about trivial stuff in life...

sorry to make you cry...

and yeah - that story should be soon - its haunting me already :)

ceedy said...

@prats

glad you liked it and yes we need to take life not so "serioisly" always..and worry about trivial stuff

ceedy said...

@suma

yup - exactly - we take things for granted till something like this hits us...

ceedy said...

@brocasarea

glad you liked it.

ceedy said...

@abreysham

and also "looking" at only the dark side of life

am kinda back...;)

so will respond soon to your query...

hope you are doing well

ceedy said...

@cinderella

yup - its important to be aware that we are certainly Lucky...no matter what.

ceedy said...

@veens

yeah - it is....

ceedy said...

@the daydreamer

it is a video set in a school - where these kids play holi and there is a fun banter...

till the end - where you find out that it is a school for the BLIND....and the kid asks - kaka rang kitne rang ke hote hao???

and then we realize how lucky we are....to have vision....and then a message to register your eyes for donation.

ceedy said...

@princess mia

yes we are lucky to have everything but always feel that we are doomed.....

rememeber for every happyness we get someone else will get more and for every sadness we think we have someone is suffering more.

ceedy said...

@rakesh

ok...and hope you do someday..

ceedy said...

@buzzz

what are you talking about????I saw colors...did you even bother seeing the video????

ceedy said...

@sameera

well - I know - I did not want to write a lot - just let the video speak for itself...

yes truly we are blessed...

ceedy said...

@neeku

ok kewl....yes it is a heartwarming video...

and about the color story - i think i will post 3 of them small ones together since I already have two which I kinda did not like but will let the readers decide

ceedy said...

@keshi

well everything in life that is a GIVEN is taken for granted and it does not entertain an effort from us to appreciate it...unless we pause and do so

ceedy said...

@aaarti

you are persistent :)

well yes we are lucky to have all out facilities in tact....

and do share the story of the dog

and the color story will be up in sometime

ceedy said...

@lakshmi

glad you liked it...

ceedy said...

@jane

kewl you liked it - will put up the story soon

ceedy said...

@princess mia

thanks for the message - checked it out and thanks for dropping the dedications

ceedy said...

@the daydreamer

thanks bud for the photu....it shows the movement, speed, lights and everything in NY - it is at Times Square

ceedy said...

@hiren

yes...so agree with you...we complain of things that sometimes many dont even have a capacity to think of or feel

we are lucky and i hope that we can live a simple life and appreciate it more....m trying hard but old habits die hard...

ceedy said...

@kp

thanks....yes will put up the story soon

ceedy said...

@preethi

hello stranger...
