“And that furthermore in my own technique I have the same ideas about colour, even thought about them when I was still in Holland. Cornflowers and white chrysanthemums and a certain number of marigolds – see here a motif in blue and orange. Heliotrope and yellow roses – motif in lilac and yellow. Poppies or red geraniums in vigorously green leaves – motif in red and green.” – Vincent Van Gogh

It was ten at night and the Guru Granth Sahib had been taken to rest for the night but the place was still buzzing with life. Devotees were resting or doing voluntary services – cleaning, scrubbing, dusting, sweeping, mopping. The gateways do not have gates and welcome all people at any point of time.
