Day 8: Maa Mahagauri/Peacock Green

Written by Hitaishi Thakkar

On the 8th day of Navratri, devotees worship Mata Mahagauri, the eighth form of Hindi Goddess Maa Durga.

Maa Mahagauri is considered to be the most beautiful avatar of Navadurga and is known for prosperity, health, and wealth.Peacock green implies uniqueness and individuality. It is the colour of compassion and freshness.

A smitten of blue with a dash of green

Creates the perfect amalgamation

That’s our timeless teal!

Teal’s the deal for medical students 

With the scrubs and logos

It’s our calm in the chaos

Brings us peace

Piece by piece it influences our lives

Uniform in the OT

And varicose veins outside

The frosty temperature causes blue green discolouration

Cyanotic patches always arise

The hospital brings us Pseudomonas

With the same shade

This bluish green tint on the agar plate

Resistant to all antimicrobials

However dangerous it maybe

To the doctor, teal always leads to glee

As it goes from the simplest prokaryote

To the largest mammal

All of them the same hue

Teal ribbon representative of ovarian cancer

Gives the strength to our survivors

Peacock green is the link

Between all medical professionals globally

Its the colour that breaks us

But also the one that ties us closer

It’s the shade that represents our fraternity

While giving us the strength and mentality
