I was waiting for my train. Mornings are always hectic in these MRTS railway stations. Funnily today, the station wore a deserted look. A couple of rowdy elements in one corner, two or three aunties and a few school going children were my only source of amusement. I hurried towards the ladies’ section and sat on the bench.
Next to me was this small girl, must be in first or second standard , I guess. She knew I was looking at her. She took her colour pens from her school bag and gave me a long stare combined with a grin.” This is sky blue”, she said. Her shrill voice pierced across the eerie calm of the station. She went on. ” This is dark green. It is very, very dark”. Then she took out another colour and gave it to me. “Come on ! Tell me what colour it is”, she said. Seeing my blank expression she assumed that I didn’t know.
She went on and on. Each colour she announced confidently. Her rhythmic recitation was put to an end by the blaring horn of the train. I got into my compartment and before I could trace her she was gone. So many colours, I thought to myself. Have we as humans forgotten to observe the richness of colours? The sky is a brilliant blue, the green trees are just very green and the bright yellow rays of the sun are so golden, just as the little girl put it.
The more you observe a colour, the more good it does to you. The colours you see influence your thoughts, the colours you wear bring out your personality. So with the Saree week going on in full swing, Shopo tells you how to pick up sarees that reflect your nature.
So you are the first sign of the Zodiac, the strong and highly independent Arian. Ruled by Mars, Arians are always high on energy. Trust me, the colour red is your colour.

A zodiac sign ruled by the Sun, golden shades are best suited for Leos, as this sign is also known as the royal sign. It helps in good administration and brings out the good qualities of a Leo. Yellows work well too. Infact, even for Sagittarians yellows are recommended as it cools down their restlessness. For the sign Pisces too, yellow is lucky. It’s the colour of growth and confidence.
For all the Virgos out there, shades of purple and very dark greens work very well with your personality.
Librans are very polite and artistic people. They are also very romantic by nature. So, white and blue shades suit their personality. Capricons achieve their targets by maintaining a low profile. For this spiritual and calm sign, light blue and purple are the best colours.
