I have been a clubber since ages. Apart from the my passion for badminton and books one other thing draws me to the club on a regular basis. The open air member's lounge (or should it be called Smoker's Corner?) where we, the club-mates, hang out in the evenings to discuss this and that. I don't watch TV much or pour through News Magazines. Where is the need? An hour in the company of the honorable members in the lounge at the club is MORE than sufficient to get the latest on the shenanigans of politicians,the spot fixing controversy in cricket, the spat between Bollywood stars, the corruption in local government and the mismanagement of our club. Generally all this happens in a congenial way and I go home satisfied that I know enough "latest news" to not to be labeled as an ignoramus. But sometimes or should i say after more than two rounds of drinks the members will latch on to a particular topic ( or person) and set the foundation for a (tipsy) argument. This is when the action really starts and personality traits are revealed. Will write more on the traits later...but let me come to the headline question of this mail. The other day. a while me and a few "regulars" of the lounge were doing our duty of downing pegs of alcohol at the lounge, another gentleman joined our table and introduced himself as a friend of so-and-so. He mentioned that he was employed in an MNC which specializes in color coating of various types of surfaces. Naturally the other members asked a few more questions on the technology and methods used by his company. He seemed to proud of the company he belonged to ( and I suspect him to be a sales guy) and enthusiastically went on to describe the MNC's High-tech production methods and processes.he talked about VIBGYOR and the million shades of a particular color that can be generated etc. etc. Meanwhile few more chota pegs had done the round.... Then all of a sudden I popped the question "Is black a color?" . The gentleman from the MNC without hesitation said "yes". And I said " Sir, FYI, Black is not a color at all." It was chaos after that. Once I finished putting my arguments forth nobody was sure about Black being a color. What happened after that and what were the other member's response will be covered later.... What do you think? IS BLACK A COLOR?
