Lord of the Colors
Millions of years ago seven mighty knights, Violet, Indigo, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange and Red ruled the Kingdom of Colors. They were collectively called VIBGYOR, and were very strong. Their kingdom was so vast, that it filled the entire space between earth and heaven.
Dark, the cunning monster wanted to kill VIBGYOR and bring the Kingdom of Colors under his control. But that was not easy. Every time, he tried to sneak into the Kingdom of Colors, the seven mighty knights chased him out. Dark had to flee for his life and hide himself in his own cover of darkness.
VIBGYOR, the seven mighty knights stayed united always. That was their strength. Nobody could invade their Kingdom. Dark, the cunning monster had a plan. “If only, I could separate the knights”, he thought. then he could swallow them one by one. The Kingdom of Colors would belong to him.
Dark collected fine granules of sand. He melted the sand in a huge furnace. He made a big glass object. Then he shaped the glass into a prism. The prism was so large that Dark had to push it inch by inch. It took hundreds of years for Dark to place the prism between earth and heaven.
One day, Dark walked into the Kingdom of Colors. VIBGYOR, the seven mighty knights appeared in a flash of light and began to chase Dark. The cunning Dark started running towards the prism. He hid himself behind the prism. The VIBGYOR knights joined into one bright color and entered the prism in a single beam of light .The prism split them up instantaneously. The seven knights were thrown out separated, on to the other side of the prism. Dark was waiting to see this happen. He suddenly engulfed each one of the knights.
But something strange happened which Dark did not expect. The Kingdom of Colors, which used to be bright and colorful, became pale and drab. Its splendor was gone. Dark was shocked to see the sudden change. What good this Kingdom would be of any use to him, if it wears a pathetic look. Dark began to think in disgust.
Soon, Dark realized his mistake. He had no right to grab other’s property. Worst thing of all, he should not have separated friends. He was selfish and cunning. Dark wept and repented for his ugly behavior. He wanted to return the Kingdom of Colors to VIBGYOR. He pleaded to heaven to fulfill his wish and promised that he shall never do the crime again.
