Colour... Its a wonderful thing. It can change your mood, uplift your sense and make you see places around you in a whole new light.
Small spots of colour makes all the difference. Some of my fondest memories would be incomplete without the bright yellow of an autorickshaw, the joyful blue of the walls of a bungalow in Fontinhas, the shiny gold of a best friends jacket , the defiant hot pink of an Old ambassador car whizzing by, the cool grey and blue combination of my school uniform, the green hills on the way to Pune...
Colours make me feel alive.
The days just seem to keep passing me by with nothing truly fruitful to show. And then I come across something that makes me wonder just where I am going, what I want to do and why I continue to delude myself by making excuses.
Sometimes, we just need a kick on our rear to put things in perspective.
I came across this wonderful project, "The Dirty Wall" which inspired me enough to share it with you.
Kane Ryan and his project have managed to transform a pocket of the slum in Saki Naka,
creating a playground from a garbage dump and expand a 140 square feet classroom into a 700 square foot
two-storey school with 12 computers!
Kane Ryan goes back to Canada for 2 to 3 months to earn the money for this and then comes back and works in India for 6 months.
I guess when you truly feel passionate enough about something you find the will to do it!
