From SUIT to SAFFRON
One of my very close friends who would meet me occasionally recently asked me
why I shifted from Suit to Saffron colored attire. Because we had intimacy he took liberty
to ask me and I replied thus.
I lived my full and enjoyed all materialistic pains and pleasures and as a part of it I
would use suit on certain occasions. Now after my vol. retirement, which is purely
voluntary, now I have freedom to do what I really want to do. Because I like saffron
color, just like any other color, I started using that colored robes slowly. Wearing saffron
color dress should not mean, I took to ‘Sanyas’. In fact, as my knowledge goes, Sanyasis
have not patented that colored dress, nor we need to pay any Royalty for wearing saffron
color dress. It is just your liking. That is all.
Many of us do not know why certain persons use saffron color dress. It has special
power of repelling NEGETIVE ENERGY. Saffron color has special quality of keeping
your AURA cleansed every moment of all negative energy around you. You may even
try this. If not saffron colored pancha (lungi) and jubba, you may even use saffron
colored T- shirts, and keep observing how the day was for you.
It is of utmost important that we should not judge a person by his mere looks. Well
dressed people are less often well mannered. Not all those wear good dress, show good
manners and dignity. Nowadays even criminals / terrorists use flights, use cars and wear
suit. You might have read in newspapers that in five star hotels security were beefed up
after Mumbai firing. Means what?
One pathetic condition in India is that Saffron color is ‘Politicized’.
All those who criticize Saffron color have forgotten that Saffron color is part our National
flag. Criticizing Saffron color amount to criticizing our National flag, and I wonder why
in India criticizing saffron is an offence. On that account, should it mean all those who
wear green color dress belong to one particular sect?
Colors should be viewed as colors only. Let us understand character of each colors
and avail the benefits if any.
