Weekly Photo Challenge : Blue

So what do I associate the colour blue with? umm….. Lord Krishna as he is called “Neela Megha Shyam” πŸ™‚ … Anyway this photo is in no way associated with that. I took this picture in Ripley’s Believe it or not Museum in the Innovative Film City, Bangalore. I just picked it because of the blue lighting . It is actually a model of a 17 inch tall pygmy or a dwarf .

My second blue picture is also from the same place . It says “skin of a murderer” . The story is pretty interesting and creepy as well. Zoom in the picture to read it .

    Why is Blue (feeling blue?) is considered sad in western culture while we celebrate it with fanfare? any ideas?

    • vandysnape says:

      Very interesting observation πŸ™‚ I don’t have an answer for the former . But in India , we associate blue with gods . Krishna is Blue and Rama is said to have a greenish-blue skin . So I guess that amounts to the fanfare πŸ™‚

      • ganeshputtu says:

        ha!!! that reminds me of Chariots of Gods? have you ever read it? about the origins of Blue-skinned Gods…the theory’s pretty much debunked now..but it used to be a rage when i was younger

      • vandysnape says:

        Oh I have never read it .. Sound very interesting though .. Will try to catch hold of it sometime πŸ™‚ What reason does it say for the blue skin ?

      • ganeshputtu says:

        Chariots of Gods basically says that Blue-skinned people are not of this earth…ie. Rama was an alien….and Sita was his spaceship (Pushpaka vimana-flying saucer) taken away and hid somewhere by the human Ravanan….and he had help from the neanderthal (anthropoid apes) race to win back his spaceship..its hilarious to read – if you are sci-fi fan…

      • vandysnape says:

        Oh that must have been really frowned upon for its unconventional ideas . I’m afraid I don’t quite go with that theory .. Thanks for sharing this piece πŸ™‚ I never knew about this theory ..
