Finally, relief from soaring summer heat. Must say temperatures were quite high this year or should say extremely high. Wonder what’s in store for next summer?? Well let’s save that thinking for some other time.
Right now its time to thank the rain gods and enjoy this pleasant season.
Those gloomy clouds.. Cool breeze with the scent of earth… Those first rain droplets.. Aahh!! The mere thought of it cheers up so much.. Monsoon is the favorite season for many, for different reasons.
It takes us down the memory lane.. As kids, we used to love playing in the rain.. Wearing raincoats.. Gumboots, Paper boat races.. Bunking the school.. As we grow up it moves to - Fun talks with friends at the street end café, having ½ chais.. Relishing chaat, pakodas, mirchi bajjis, hot jalebis, makka buttas.. Drenching in rain just for fun.. I remember those days of my college.. couple of us used to gather up on the terrace just to enjoy the rain, dance in the rain.. And we never had a fear of getting caught :) very few can think of that place…
With so much greenery around, its just so much refreshing and inspiring.. Creativity blooms for writers, poets, photographers, painters.. Our very own Bollywood has piled up some good collection of rain songs :) Few like traveling as well during this time.. I remember one of my friend mentioning the same.. The idea was to enjoy the rain while traveling in a train.. Passing by all those lovely sceneries…. Really loved that thought..
