Fwd: FROM THE NATURE : SUN'S COLOURS= COLOURS OF FLOWERS : 1 post by 1 author. Attachments (1)
Prof. A Lalithamba sent me an interesting story describing the colours of sun. She talks about a tradition in the Southern states, where 7th day of the month Maagha is celebrated as Ratha Saptami (Birth day of sun). On this occasion in Andhra a traditional Telugu song is sung by women, in which sun's colours at different time of the day are equated with colours of different flowers. I arranged a collage of the flowers (mentioned in the song) along with an image of sun.
The original song must be quite descriptive. There was time when people used to be closer to nature and their observation power was great. One can make it out from the description of nature by Valmiku in his Ramayan.
