Once upon a time, the colours of the world started to quarrel.
All claimed that they were the best; the most important, the most useful, and the most favourite.

GREEN said :
"Clearly I am the most important. I am the sign of life and hope. I was chosen for grass, trees and leaves. Without me, all animals would die. Look over the countryside and you will see that I am in the majority."

BLUE interrupted :
"You only think about the earth, but consider the sky and the sea. It is the water that is the basis of life and drawn up the clouds from the deep sea. The sky gives space and peace and serenity. Without my peace, you would all be nothing."

YELLOW chucked :
"You are all so serious. I bring laughter, gaiety, and warmth into the world . The sun is yellow, the moon is yellow, the stars are yellow. Everytime you look at a sunflower, the whole world starts to smile. Without me there would be no fun."

ORANGE started to blow her trumpet :
"I am the colour of health and strength. I may be scarce, but I am precious for I serve the needs of human life. I carry the most important vitamins. Think of carrots, pumpkins, oranges, mangoes and papayas. I don't hang around all the time, but I fill the sky at sunrise or sunset, my beauty is so striking that no one gives another thought to any of you."

RED could stand it no longer, he shouted out :
" I am the ruler of all of you. I am blood - life's blood! I bring fire into the blood. I am willing to fight for a cause. I am the color of danger and of bravery. Without me, the earth would be as empty as the moon. I am the colour of passion and of love, the red rose, the poinsettia and the poppy."

PURPLE rose up to his full tall height :
"I am the color of power. I am the sign of authority and wisdom. People do not question me! They listen and obey."

Finally INDIGO spoke, much more quietly than all the others, but with just as much determination :
"Think of me. I am the colour of silence. You hardly notice me, but without me you all become superficial. I represent thought and reflection, twilight and deep water. You need me for balance and contrast, for inner peace."

So the colours went on boasting, each convinced of his or her own superiority.
Their quarreling became louder and louder.
Suddenly there was a startling flash of bright lightening.
Thunder rolled and boomed.
Rain started to pour down relentlessly.
The colours crouched down in fear, drawing close to one another for comfort.

In the midst of the clamor, rain began to speak :
"You foolish colours, fighting amongst yourselves, each trying to dominate the rest!
Don't you know that you were each made for a special purpose, unique and different?
Join hands with one another and come to me."
Doing as they were told, the colours united and joined hands.

The rain continued :
"From now on, when it rains, each of you will stretch across the sky in a great bow of color as a reminder that you can all live in peace. The Rainbow is a sign of hope for tomorrow."

And so, whenever a good rain washes the world, and a Rainbow appears in they sky, let us remember to appreciate one another.....

Hello dear Learner of life,

Thank you for the friend request.:)

The colours of friendship are different. They can be bright and sweet, but they can also be dark if your friend betrays you.

May your friendship always have only the colours of happiness!

Best wishes,
