Hi Manish,
I think what you want is a series of reds that you can use to 
distinguish the bars in a stack. The series will be repeated in each 
stack of the plot. If this is the case, maybe this will help:

# assume you have five bars in each stack
# first use saturation - deep red to pink
# then try brightness - bright red to dark red
# finally use different red colors
