Colours & Emotions.-The Navarasas

Last week I saw a bharathanatyam (dance) performance by Dr.Leela Samson of Kalakshetra on the T.V.It was very enjoyable & interesting. She had interpreted an episode from Kalidasa's Kumarasambhavam.,which was very tastefully set to music.The second partof her recital was about the Navarasas or the Nine emotions.She had matched them to episodes from the Ramayana .I learnt that the nine emotions had nine colours to represent them visually.I found this very interesting as a student of psychology.I wonder if we can translate them into stitches or textures.That is something to explore & I wonder where it would lead me .My web is certainly getting more tangled.
Today I had got a surprise gift from my mother & sister for Karthigai.I loved it.

So, I'm a blogger now!

Ever since I read a friend's blog,soon after we moved to Coimbatore I had wanted to write about the things that touch me .But then I thought one must be very computer savy to do so.It is only later when I visited blogs such as Sharon .B.'s&Bhavani's that I realised that I could do it too though I could not bring myself to press the relevant buttons on the screen.Sharon was very helpful in directing me to the relevant sites thru Mindtracks.I intend to write atleast once a week. Lets see how it goes.The topics could range from Psychology to Religion to Kolams to Patterns to Embroidery to Fabric& Thread Crafts to Creativity & thus back to ....yes ..Psychology.Does that make my web tangled enough?
