  type: 'bar',
  data: {
    labels: ['Jan', 'Feb', 'Mar', 'Apr'],
    datasets: [{
      label: 'Months',

                display: true,
                text: 'Title goes here ...',
                color: '#0055ff',

                align: 'start',

                    weight: 'bold',
                    style: 'italic',
