It is not often that we see the many shades of the many places in the world. But when you are in India, chances are that you catch a vibrant site unexpectedly even as you simply turn to a corner.

Our social studies' books highlighted the fact that we are a diverse country pretty boldly. But the Instagram account Colours Of India is making sure we get to see that diversity in various hues and colors, pretty literally.

Check out some of their curations.

Sometimes you see innocence, and art, all in a single frame.

@sourav.jack

And sometimes you see a slice of life, in colors.

@deckle_edge

At times a day is bright, and so is everything around you.

@marjilang

Sometimes, the wind too catches colors.

@subirbasak7

And other times, it is just the faces.

@avishekdasphotography

Our streets are multicultural and multi-colored.

@vineet_vohra

And nature too doesn't shy away from bringing out its many shades.

@mahadevan_thampi

Sometimes the houses are as colorful as the lives that live inside them.

@idhahi

Different seasons, different hours, different colors.

@ashish.langade

And what we do fills our life with meaning and bloom.

@jithu_b

We paint the town green, red, pink, you name it.

@kallol_b_photography_2017

And we paint our lives that way as well.

@clauderenault

Because life isn't all that fun when it is monochromatic, eh?

@kris_toor

Therefore, night or day, dark or light, find colors in your life.

@veronica_gera

Sometimes, everything is bright with just a bit of tint.

@avishekdasphotography

Sometimes everything in the surroundings reflects what we feel.

@framesbyankit

And so does history.

@waelalteen

And the love we share.

@the_third_visionn

And the people who make our lives colorful.

@stevemccurryofficial

Or maybe it is just us, the painter of our lives.

@ig_biswarup

Chromatic diversity, much? Much.
