Soundarya Lahari - Part 268


When a colour is visible it means the light wave corresponding to that colour is the only thing that has not been absorbed by the medium that transmits the light. Whatever colour is reflected, that shows up; and whatever colours are absorbed, they do not show up. 

When white shows up it means none of the colours is absorbed, all of them are ‘reflected’ and they merge into  one colour, white. When dark shows up it means all the waves of light are absorbed and there is no ‘reflection’.
