Dear Readers, you may notice the dates of the Blog do not match the Flash Post dates which are in real time. The blog was written in 2009 and saw the light of day 6 months back when my younger daughter discovered it and decided to bring it to you here.

August 27. 5pm. “Button, what colour is the sky today?”

“It’s a combination of different shades of grey because it is raining.”

“Do you see no other colour? Supposing you were to add black, beige, ochre and may-be even pink…!”

“But there isn’t any ochre or pink!”

“Why can’t you just add ochre and pink? Adding a few colours even if you don’t see them could be interesting. You would be creating a sky with imaginary colours!”

“What are you trying to say?”

“All I am trying to say is that when we add or take away facts from something in existence, we succeed in turning that moment into something more colourful and daring.”

“What about truth?”

“Plain truth can be very boring. Saying it as it stands can be very dull. We have the power to change the picture or situation into something that’s more visually appealing and exciting. Of-course, it all depends on the subject. For instance, a news journalist cannot tamper with information. Depending on the subject, we can let our minds play havoc as much as it can to create something that’s more exciting.”

“I get it. Why then do we teach kids to say the truth?”

“Button, I am talking of creative stuff. This is not about children or truth. I am teaching you to think, to create.”
