  1. Is red a school color? or just a popular color in the culture? I love those red plastic chairs as well as the red sweaters and jackets!

  2. Good question,

    quite a few schools in the area use red uniforms, which might contribute to an abundance of red garment materials in the area, the children at this school however do not wear uniforms but on a cultural note wikipedia says: In the Indian Sub-continent, red is the traditional color of bridal dresses, and is frequently represented in the media as a symbolic color for married women. The color is associated with purity, sexuality in marriage relationships through its connection to heat and fertility.[55] It is also the color of wealth, beauty, and the goddess Lakshmi.[43]
