Rain drops keep falling on my head


And it rained at last!!! After days and weeks of endless wait, it rained yesterday and since then it is drizzling continuously. The temperature has come down considerably and the humidity level as well... It was such a relief from the scorching heat that we were experiencing for the past so many weeks.... Delhi is worst in summers.... Days were restless and nights, sleepless... What a change now!!! The cool breeze is blowing... I want to be stand out in the balcony and enjoy the weather rather than sit at home.... Everything seems so clean, pure, clear.... The leafs are more green, the flowers more prettier, the water cold, the roads clean and washed out, the birds singing more happily.. Seems like someone has inserted life back into all these lives!!!! Everyone seems to enjoy the rains. Children playing in the puddles, animals getting wet, birds taking a shelter here and there while they try to dry themselves....

Along with rains, come few more good things... hot and crisp pakodas, a cup of hot cardamom tea, bhutta being roasted on the coal and then eaten with lots of nimbu and masala put on it... Also with the rains, out come my raincoat, umbrella, rain slippers.... have to put away my white clothes for sometime..... Few things that I dont like about the rains: water logged streets, cars splashing water on the pedestrians and two-wheelers, smell of dampness, swamp, walking on the road with mud all around, pot holes, mosquitoes that come with rains.....

Still I shall say that rains are more than welcome... Atleast its gives that much awaited relief from the heat and summers....

well after reading this , it reamined me of my school days , i was in hostel during my school days and we use to walk in the rain eating all the ripe cashew fruits ( our campus had lot of it ) . Hot pakora was out of the question then cos the menu was prepared by someone else .

NOwadays when it rains i feel like walking in it , and sometime i do that .
