All things white and wonderful

White...one of the coolest colors of summer. White is purity, cleanliness and innocence. Strictly speaking, white is not a color, but the manifestation of the presence of all color - the complete energy of light. It stands for wholeness and completion. In many cultures it represents openness and truth. White has a cold quality. It can provide clarity as its energy is complete.

 One of the most beautiful flowers, the white Indian lotus. This beauty bloomed last summer in our lotus pond


                                             
Tollywood actres Sameera Reddy looks cool as a cucumber in a white sari

Eggs, eggs and more eggs


French manicured white finger nails...


 
White fluffy rice served in the traditional Indian manner at a wedding




A cool serene Swedish home


 The calming oasis of a bedroom in the same home


Who can resist a moist chewy chocolate chip cookie dunked in a glass of cold milk

 
The fashionable French poodle

 
Another favorite Indian summer drink....buttermilk spiced with curry leaves, green chilis, coriander and spices
 
 
One of the most essential colors while painting...Tungsten White

A crisp cool white riesling...to go with the cake maybe?
