Colourful silk strands…extra

Colour is everywhere around us – in nature, in everyday materials. Different colours are associated with different moods – red for love, yellow spells sunshine. Specific occasions demand specific colour dress- black gowns for graduation, green or red on happy occasions, red and pink for traditional Indian wedding, white for shimmering bridal gowns and so on….

On a visit to a saree loom in the small town of Narayanpet, near Hyderabad, I saw colourful, shining strands of dyed silk threads. Upon drying they would be put on a spool and used on the weaving loom. Beautiful sarees in contrast colours are then woven.

Gorgeous blue and yellow strands made an eye-catching moment.

But wait…why was this extra...green?

And the weaver had refused to move it aside, when I requested him to. 

Maybe it was shot for this specific post …Extra, extra.
