TM Shruthi spoke about how colors influence the feeling and behavior. She says when we were less developed animals we used it for survival as red, orange we considered as food like fruits. Green is for safety as we took shelter under the tree canopies, blue represented sky which made us get wet and made us feel good. Though today we don’t need color for survival still it plays a vital role like to signal action etc. She called TM Haneef for Thought of the evening and introduced all the role players.
