So it is a pleasant day in this part of the world. You know, for a place that is actually a remote part of the Sun, a little bit of nip in the air makes us want to turn off the fans and take as much of winter as we could to last us rest of the 11.5 months of summer.
I was sipping my tea (ginger, mint, less sugar) and minding everyone else’s business on Twitter when suddenly a thought struck me. I realised I have a phenomenal sense of imagination.
For a few minutes, I zoned out and was imagining how would colours smell and sound? I mean, I’ve already thought of what if colours had taste – blue would taste like salt.. green would be bitter and so would orange. I think white would actually be sweet. Black would be sour.
But how would they sound? I think white would smell like bread. It could also be because bread is white and I love bread and who doesn’t love bread? I think white would also sound like silence. I don’t think I’d like to hear white.
Black and red would smell like what seduction would smell like. Purple will smell like a flower. And orange will sound like carbonated water bubbles. I also think green will sound like a river flowing through a forest. It may also sound like Anu Malik singing jungle hai aadhi raat hai lagne laga hai darrrrrr.
I don’t know.
I can’t be the only one trying to figure out how colours would sound, smell and taste, right? What do you think?
