Color Blindness

Men are supposed to be limited in terms of sensitivity to colors, while women usually work in the 65536-colors scheme. But, in my house, it turned out to be just the opposite with Dad and me!

The other day, I was helping Dad with his packing for the Delhi trip. He pulled out a few trousers from his wardrobe and asked me to choose. Two of them were in gray -- one seemed to have a very light tint of maroon in it, and the other one had just the teeniest bit of green. But they both looked very gray to me.

Dad, apparently, doesn't follow the correct side of the above chart either. When I referred to those trousers as "gray", he simply couldn't understand what I was referring to. For him, they were "green" and "maroon" instead. I looked at them in all the different lights available to me... they remained "gray".

Weird. I hadn't expected this from Dad. I mean I've known about my own "color blindness" (or "color limited-ness" rather) for many years. I have even blogged about it here before (The 8 Random Facts [8RF] Game), but, that other incident had happened with my sister. I never imagined Dad to have a color spectrum like my sister too! Like I said... weird...
