The End of the Spectrum【在光譜的那一端】


[The End of the Spectrum]

By: Sadhika NANDA (Hall 11)

To lovers, it spells love; to warriors, it spells blood and to everybody, it spells danger: the colour red. Ever so powerful, that it signifies something whether on the lips of a woman or on the carpet upon which the famous walk.

To some of us, however, red is more than just a colour: it’s a symbol. It symbolises one’s first Valentine, a late friend’s favourite t-shirt and the feeling that goes through one when one experiences any kind of pain. For most of us, especially, it symbolises Hong Kong, our spectacular mutual home, in all its red glory- the flag, its taxis, and the MTR’s Tsuen Wan Line.
As a colour, it has both negative and positive connotations, but one cannot go through life without being affected by it. And just like everything that has its ebbs and flows, red hence has its undeniable significance. How fortunate are we, then, to possess the gift of sight and see red!
