A flush of red 

Canary yellow, 

Cadmium orange, 

Crimson red. 

Zia immerses herself in colours, 

As she turns an empty canvas into a sunset. 

She’s in her studio that overlooks the beach. 

Its stained glass windows gleam against sunlight. 

She spends day after day in her studio, 

Her brushstrokes create magic with colours. 

Colours are the essence of her existence, 

Her eyes can pick up even the faintest of tints. 

For others, the ocean is just blue, 

But Zia sees a spectrum of colours. 

Turquoise, cerulean, azure and sapphire. 

No colour has ever failed to delight her, 

Except for a flush of red that she saw on her breast. 

On a windy autumn morning, Zia stood, 

In front of her full-length mirror, drying herself. 

Her eyes trained to pick up every tone and hue, 

Found a tinge of red on her right breast. 

It seemed nothing, but Zia couldn’t ignore it. 

So, she decided to get to know the colour more. 

She glided her fingers up and down, 

Over her right breast with her arm raised. 

It wasn’t just a flush of red, 

But she found a thick patch of skin on her breast. 

Her face paled, and her breath quickened, 

As she realized what it meant. 

The world seemed colourless for a while, 

But Zia couldn’t give up on her life. 

Changing into a Prussian blue saree, 

She decided to get the colours back in her life. 

It has been months since. 

The red hue of her right breast is gone. 

Zia is thankful for her eyes, 

That picked up early signs of her cancer. 

She has gotten back to her studio, 

To celebrate the colours of her life. 

"Step2 – Use the flat of your fingers to examine the breast while in the shower, lying down and standing in front of a mirror."

Kerala Mural


Kerala mural art is a traditional form of painting that originated in the southern Indian state of Kerala. Rooted in religious narratives, Kerala mural art has evolved over centuries to become a celebrated cultural heritage of India. History and Tradition The history of Kerala mural art can be traced back to the ancient temples and palaces of Kerala, where these magnificent paintings adorned the walls as expressions of devotion and artistic excellence. Dating back to as early as the 9th century CE, Kerala murals can be seen in places like Thirunadhikkara cave, Vaikom temple, Padmanabhaswamy temple etc.  Themes Generally, Kerala mural paintings are inspired by Hindu mythology, depicting scenes from the epics Ramayana, Mahabharata, and Puranas. These paintings often portray gods, goddesses, celestial beings, and mythological creatures in elaborate detail, conveying stories of love, valor, and divine intervention reflecting the rich tapestry of Indian mythology and spirituality. Techniques and Details  Kerala mural art is characterized by meticulous attention to detail, vibrant colors, and beautiful compositions. At first, artists prepare the wall with layers of lime and sand mixture. Natural pigments derived from minerals, plants, and metals, are used to draw outlines and later fill the colors, using brushes made from natural fibers. Artists skillfully incorporate architectural features such as pillars, arches, and doorways into their compositions, creating a sense of depth and dimensionality. The paintings are often adorned with decorative motifs and geometric patterns, adding to their visual appeal. V.M. Jijulal and Adarsh are some of the notable artists practicing this ancient art.
