A Photo A week Challenge : White


White to me, will always signify purity, simplicity and peace.

Unfortunately in Hindu Culture, white is inauspicious and signifies sadness. It prescribed this color only for Widows and widows wore only this color day in and day out, whatever may be their  preference, age or wish. There was no choice.Things have thankfully changed now.

In Kerala a part of South India, we also wear a special kind of a saree called Kerala saree which is not strictly white but off white. We wear it for all traditional occasions. In the picture I am wearing it on a Festival called Onam.

The stairs in our house is colored white.

And I love white clouds. So  I am starting with them.
