LISTEN TO THE POURING RAIN ❤

LISTEN TO THE POURING RAIN ❤

It has certainly taken its time about it this year, but finally the monsoon is upon us. And not a moment too soon, either, if u ask me. Just when we were about to wilt under the unrelenting heat and melt into a little puddle of humidity, the skies opened up and gave us the magic of the monsoon. The rain came crashing down; washing away the dirt and grime of an Indian summer and suddenly the world looked green, clean and freshly laundered, with the smell of petrichor filling the air.
As you can tell, I love the rains. I love the sight of dark, gathering clouds. I love the fact little rain drops that fall on my window. I love the drama of the thunder and the flash of the lightning. I love the romance of walking in the rain, getting soaked to the skin and drenched to the bone.
This is why I can never understand the monsoon naysayers, the ones who moan and groan about the onset of the rain. Yes, I know that traffic can become a mess after a five minute shower in some part. I know that if a storm breaks, a parker can’t be far behind. And that the slightest hint of rain is liable to make dish [less a DTH service; more a weather app] disappear off your TV sets.
But come on! It’s the monsoon. It’s the season to leave all your inhibitions aside and embrace the promise of the rains. It’s the time to sit in your balcony and watch, hot mug of tea or coffee in your hand, as the showers transform the urban landscape or just snuggle up on your couch, with a good book, and read all day long with a thunderstorm providing the perfect background score.
Are you really going to be put off by a few puddles or even massive water logging, for that matter? Isn’t a traffic snarl a small price to pay for the privilege of gazing at those darkening skies, until they finally split open and shower their largesse upon us? Thus khichdi ever taste better than when it is accompanied by a light but unrelenting drizzle? And did I mention that the temperature falls by as much as ten degrees?
So, my message to all the monsoon kill-joys out there is this: lighten up and embrace the season. It is going to rain incessantly, if we are lucky; on and off, whether you like it or not. So, why not trying and get into the monsoon spirit this year?
Listen to the pouring rain….
And take time off to revel in the magic of the monsoon…

Spread the love
