The sky is not really blue, it has no colour
But because it is infinite it appears blue.
The blue is only an appearance.
Whenever the river is deep it will appear blue
Although the water has no colour.
Depth gives it an appearance of blueness.
That's why in India I come across
Krishna painted as if he were blue.
Now, nobody is born blue.
There are black people and there are white
People and there are red people and yellow
But nobody is born blue
Except a few blue children who die
Who cannot survive.
But Krishna is painted as if he were blue.
The very word 'krishna' means the blue one.
He is painted blue for the simple reason that
Blueness represents depth, infinity, vastness.
