It has been sweltering hot summer and the temperatures soared to all-time highs. Everyone was looking forward to the rainy season to get some relief from the sultry days and nights.
Finally, it rained today and the temperature has fallen down considerably.
Sitting in my office, I could hear the pitter patter of the rain, falling on the window pane and it delighted me instantly. I love the rains and the smiles they bring in.
I got up and went to the window. There were some kids on the road, playing in the puddles of water and that reminded me of the childhood days. Oh How much I miss those good old days!
Rushing to the rooftop to get drenched or making paper boats and sailing them were few exciting things to do during the rainy season. Gobbling up the yummy delicacies- the hot pakoras, bhajias and jalebis, which were prepared especially during the evenings during rains without the stress about gaining weight or consuming more calories with the fried stuff.
As I grew up, I worried about the losses which might happen with the heavy downpour. I can’t imagine the plight of people whose houses are swept away during floods or the difficulties faced by common people due to water clogging, disturbing the daily life.
I am thankful to God for providing a roof over my head that provides me shelter and food that fills my stomach.
Now, I just sit back with a hot steaming cup of Coffee/Tea and a book in my bed or just sit by the window and watching the rain pouring outside.
But one thing has not changed over the years and that is I still love the rains !
Do you love rains? What do you do when it is raining ??
