Ramlila ground in Delhi on Saturday turned into a 'sea of white' as Arvind Kejriwal took oath as Delhi Chief Minister with thousands of his supporters thronging the venue wearing trademark caps with 'aam aadmi' inscription on them, making waves of a colour symbolizing purity and peace.

Those who reached the venue of swearing-in function without the white cap were not disheartened as there were hordes of hawkers selling them at a nominal price of Rs five.

"Whichever way you turned, it was a sea of white as if a gush of water has engulfed the people in the holy white," said 68-year old Shivraj Sharma, a retired professor who travelled all the way from Gurgaon to be a part of the ceremony.

Shashi Shukla, a software engineer, who came with her husband and four-year old daughter, said they bought the white caps from a hawker outside the ground.

"My daughter insisted that we also wear the white cap and so we bought them. But surprisingly, we are not feeling uncomfortable and rather feeling united with the crowd," she said.

Wearing the white cap served to be a great unifier for Ravindra Kumar (22) who came with his college friends to witness the momentous occassion.

"It looked as if the entire gathering stood as a unified body under a white umbrella and the gap between the rich and the poor, the haves and the have-nots, erased," he said.
