They forced on her a white robe , symbolizing her character. And told her not to stain it.
He was given choice , among different colours.none symolosing his character.
She decided for her self
She picked a brush, paints and a pen
She painted white canvases in rainbow shades , in scarlet , quartz and jades.
She wrote a best seller , ‘Staining the whites ‘she titled it.
By now the white was rainbow ,with all the paint stains red,yellow,green and ink stains in indigo.
She shined ,
They got angry , she simply smiled
If his robe didn’t symbolise his character why should mine?.
