Colours – Part 03 (more light on colours)

Since last two posts, we have established a good tempo and talking about Colours! Right? Yesterday, I was compiling all the notes for this post and was sorting topics. And while doing that, I was sort of thinking to ask my doubts to some one who can answer me well. While thinking about that I started dreaming of a meeting with such a one. I immediately called him and asked for his appointment and to my surprise he agreed. And you know what? Today, We have that very spacial guest with us.
‘Mr. Light’ himself. Yes The Great Mr. LIGHT HIMSELF! Ta Da!
Me: Hello Sir!
Mr. L: Hi Mahesh, how are you?
Me: I’m Great! Its my pleasure to see you. And how do you do, sir!
Mr. L: Pretty straightforward. But Mahesh, I am afraid that I have very short time for discussion now. I have to go to my friends birthday. Her name is twinkle. In next 15 seconds I have to reach there. So ask it quickly.
Me: OK, OK. Sir. I will ask you as fast as possible! I was discussing with my friends about how do we ‘see’. Can you describe us, how do we humans see colours? We would love if, you will put some light on that.
Mr. L: OK Time’s up. I need to go now. I will talk with you later! Till then why don’t you google about that your self? Hmm?
And suddenly a big flash of light crossed over my head and then… Continue reading

Talk on Colours – Part02

Hello everyone,

We were talking about a very very wonderful subject – the colours – since the last post. Now we will continue our discussion further.

So, the question arrived earlier was – How do we actually see?
 For us to see anything, it needs at-least these four things.
  1. A light source
  2. An object to look at
  3. The Eye and …
  4. (We will talk about the 4th in just a minute)
The first thing needed is a light source, from which some amount of light is emitted.

Secondly, an object (of course!) to look at has to be there. Continue reading

Colours! What a great and beautiful topic to discuss about. I am feeling really joyful to announce that for next few days we will be talking about such a wonderful topic.

We all know the importance of colours. Colours play a very significant role in our day to day life. Colour is the basic and most primary form of our knowledge of the world that surrounds us. Because of the colours we percept or interpret our environment. Colours are the very alphabets of one of our most prominent senses, the vision. Sight is the most vital sensory system among the five. And with colours we ‘see’, we communicate, we interact, we learn and we do all our activities.

The topic ‘Colour‘ has got both, the scientific side as well as the creative. Of course we are more interested in the creative side, where Continue reading

I was shocked when I heard recently the News, “Gearge Lucas is planning to sell his company ‘LucasFilms’ and is planning to retire too”. It was a really shocking news to me. Cause, like me, I am sure people of my age and around, have grown up watching films from lucasfilms. Who can forget StarWars, Jurassic park, Terminators, Mummy upto very recent films Pirates of the Caribbean, Transformers, Harry Potter, Narnia or Rango. I was in 9th or 10th when I first saw Jurassic Park. And the horrifying effect of the dinosaurs remained in my mind so long. Such films had created immense attraction and curiosity about film making, graphics and spacial effects, in thousands of minds. My carrier too was developed observing and studying films by ILM (a franchise of Lucasfilms). For people of my generation ILM is like the God in Spacial effects films. And now the News comes ‘ Lucas to retire’. Obviously bad.

But there was a good news too! And that shocked me again. Continue reading
