Colour me in the pink

By theRead Desk We rely on colours — external appearances, second-hand information — to understand our world, in most cases. Yet, they can be very misleading. Here's a selection of lucid images to help explain how to deal with this... Colour. It's what defines an object. Colour is literally what differentiates an edible melon from a poisonous one... ^  A Hello Kitty face is embossed on a melon, grown specially in Hokkaido, Japan.

Kumble, Laxman, Tendulkar and Ganguly played 65 Tests together for India.
