Seeing Colours

The world is full of colours but not all can see them. 


God differentiates and so some are made to see the world in black and white. 


The sun gives warmth while the moon brings with it a cool night but they both look the same. 


Rose, be it red, white, yellow or purple is a rose; the colour matters not. 


They have to be content with the fragrance and let others enjoy the colours. 


Reading the legend on the map is an art that they can’t master and so is the task of learning colours in school. 


Life keeps moving on, in black and white. 


Can be the mistake by God be corrected to make the lives of those people colourful?


Neil Harbisson as a child didn’t have a favourite colour and the reason was that he couldn’t see any. 


And not every country flag was distinct for him. 


But the rest of his life wasn’t going to be the same.


He moved on to create a device that would help him hear colours by transforming them into sounds. 


And the world changed for him!


The world is small. 


But ideas are not. 


Every corner of the world has a problem and trying to solve it would itself be a great move.
