Rang De Basanti

When we reached home from the airport, we parked the car under the amaltas tree. Even at night, I could see the beautiful bunches of yellow with which the slender branches were laden.
The first thing that mom unpacked when we got home were the alphonso mangoes she had purchased in Pune, and the fragrance of the yellow fruit was intoxicating.
The next morning was cloudless, and warm golden sunlight permeated the house and lit up the freshly painted cream coloured walls.
Sis showed off pictures she had clicked of a sunflower field. Bright blossoms smiled at me from the photo album.
Ok enough of the gushing. This is not a celebratory entry.

This evening I was diagnosed with jaundice.

Morphie to cousin : I got a new cricket set yesterday. We will play cricket throughout the holidays.

Eavesdropping God : Is that so?

Mom to Morphie : You have fever. No Next day, cricket till the fever comes down.

A few days later...

Doctor to Dad : Your son has typhoid.

Many days later...

Doctor to Morphie : You are better now. You can start playing cricket.

Morphie to Doctor : School starts tomorrow.

Yellow is the color of sunshine. It's associated with joy, happiness, intellect, and energy. Yellow produces a warming effect, arouses cheerfulness and stimulates mental activity.

This is not a celebratory comment, either.

Take care. No wait. Take boiled raddish juice.

Look at the stars,
Look how they shine for you,
And everything you do
Yeah, they were all yellow.

I would send you a "get well soon" card, but I guess this comment will have to do.
