Everything is gray. Everything is gray.
I want to go back to the time, when This was White and That was Black.
There is anonymity in Gray, there is ambiguity in Gray….
I want the safety of, This is Good and That is Bad.
They are so well defined. Why did Gray creep in?
When did Gray creep in? When Black and White were being defined, how come Gray creeped in?
Stealthily, Silently...
Wrapping me, wrapping all of us in its comfortable shroud....
Surrounding us with its officiousness.

Gray doesn’t allow any judgment.
Gray doesn’t allow you to be judgmental.
Gray accommodates everybody, everything.
Gray always forgives.
Gray is what everybody is, everything is…..

White and Black, Good and Bad, True and False, Beautiful and Ugly are all so exclusive, so sure of their definition, so elusive, free from association with commoners.

What is it to be Brave?
It is to be:
Pure White
Or
Pure Black.

Good
Or
Bad.

Christ
Or
Satan.

Gray, well that’s for all of us, who just….. Exist.

I know a very good cure for gray. It's called Godrej Natural Black Hair Dye. Only drawback being the scalp itches like hell the next day. :-D

Cheers.

Amruta, when did you grow up ? :)
You are so clear with your thoughts. Just amazing.

Kritika, you will NOT believe HOW many people go through this gray phase.. specially people brought up in small towns where everything seems to be white or black..specially in our kind of schooling / home environments / etc..

Grey is omnipresent
