The Strong Impact Of Colours

Have you ever stopped to think about the colour of your clothes? When shopping for clothes, you’re probably processing 2-3 pieces per second until one of them absolutely stands out and makes you want to try it on. Colours play an important role while shopping for new clothes. Let’s understand the impact of colours better and why they play a vital role on a daily basis in our lives.

Finding the right shade for the right season

It is suggested that certain colour palettes are best suited for particular seasons of the year. During winters, it is better to wear colours that are sharp and clear. White, black, navy blue, and red, all look easy on the eyes. Summers are all about bright colour palettes. For lighter colours, icy tones are preferable to pastels. Avoid tones like beige, orange and gold. 

Colour Wheel to the rescueA colour wheel often comes to the rescue when you’re in a dire need to save a fashion mishap. After observing a colour wheel, we can see that there are 12 main colours ranging from red to violet, green to yellow, and all the way back to blue to red.These are basic colours that can be referred to as hues. Upon addition of black or white to any one of these hues, the range of colors that can be derived is virtually endless. The trick is in understanding the position of each colour on the wheel, how close or far apart they are is what makes them easy or difficult to coordinate.

Colour Combinations for Casual Style

Casual colours usually don’t make us dive into a state of excitement, but they’re likely to be easy on the eyes. Build your casual collection by adding bright colours such as shades of orange and green. These look good with the Indian skin tone and are also different from the white, blue and black that most men wear. Try wearing your blue denim or cotton shorts with a bright toned tee and white trainers. Simple but effective. You will see how much the colours pop and compliment each other.

Monochrome never goes out of fashion

A monotone chromatic colour scheme is simple and always  stays in trend. Take one particular shade and adopt 2-3 variations of that colour, creating an impact with the hue. Attempt to experiment with dark and light shades. The main ingredient is the pairing of the tint and the shade. Since the colours are similar, there is more room to differentiate by adding texture and layering. 

Colours and colour combinations are an important aspect of fashion and menswear. They add variety, personality and fun to your closet. If you are ever in doubt, pick a colour and don’t be hesitant to play around with the tint and shade.


#Beyond Boundaries: Saluting the passion of the blind

         Don’t we all enjoy a good game of cricket? The smell of the freshly mowed grass, the sound of the thousands fans screaming and cheering as the ball goes straight over the stadium fences, or the anticipation of the last ball. But have you ever wondered what happens when you can’t see the ball coming at you and all you have to rely on is something that sounds like a rattle and the words, ‘Play, Play, Play’?

There are many visually challenged people who go beyond their boundaries to follow their passions not only for cricket but also in life. To celebrate and make people aware of these passions and dedications, we at Siyaram’s decided to collaborate with Rotary Club and the Blind Welfare Association of India to bring to light the lives of those who live in darkness. The event chosen was the Inter-State Blind Cricket Cup.

Blind Cricket is a version of cricket adapted for the blind and partially sighted players. The All-India tournament was a 3 day affair with teams from 8 different states across the country — Maharashtra, Punjab, Jammu & Kashmir, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Delhi and Himachal Pradesh. The tournament was held in Mumbai from 16th-18th January, 2018, with matches at Islam Gymkhana. 

The first day saw a lot of enthusiasm from the 8 state teams at the opening ceremony on the Islam Gymkhana ground. Matches were played only in daylight so as to allow players a better chance to see the ball. The scores and live commentary was made available on the Zooter app. Their spirit was remarkable and there was never a challenge that the teams couldn’t face.

The rules of Blind Cricket are very similar to that of cricket with only differences in the way they play it. For example, the ball that they play with has to be a size 3 Mitre ball, or equivalent and has to be white, filled with ball bearings. This allows partially sighted players to see the ball and the contents allow blind players to hear it. The stumps are 10 inches wide such that partially sighted players can see them and blind players can touch it in order to correctly orient themselves when batting or bowling. Bails are not used. They commonly use of the ‘sweep shot’, in order to provide the maximum chance of the bat hitting the ball. To see what ball is used in this game, head over to our Facebook page:

The excitement and zeal with which the teams played with was truly remarkable to watch! Our three-day event ended with the Gujarat team winning the tournament and the Madhya Pradesh team bagging the runner’s up title.
Players from team Gujarat like Hitesh Pandya and Ashwin Kumar were key players in their journey to victory. They were named ‘Best Bowler’ and ‘Best Fielder’ respectively. Not to forget Ketan Patel who was truly an honour to watch. He scored a total of 238 runs and took 3 wickets for his team in the tournament. He was also awarded the titles of ‘Man of the Series’ and the ‘Best Batsman’.  With grit, determination and passion these men achieved success, after all people with true passion make the impossible happen no matter the hurdles. Let us give a round of applause to these brave men and salute them for who they are!
