I will never get tired of the rains

I am so delighted that it is finally raining in mumbai.

I know the nuisance it is causing. I was stuck in traffic for almost 2 hours yesterday… cold and wet… but I could never really curse the rain. I can never get enough of it.

I don’t mind removing clothes from the wires when it begins to rain,

I don’t mind the wet dog smell in my building

I don’t mind me not able to get up early morning because of the cold weather

I don’t mind the slight rashes on the skin or itchiness of the scalp

I don’t mind the muddy water or the kichad on the clothes.

I don’t mind sneezing because of the cold.

I don’t mind anything because of the rains.


I don’t mind that it takes more than 6 hours for my hair to dry

I don’t mind anything…

Oh Rain, u can ┬ábe assured of one thing – I will never get tired of U.

Oh Rain, where art thou?

A few kids came home to chat yesterday. Amongst other things, One kid expressed her desire for it to rain. The other said, Oh yes, it sure looks like it will rain.

And I realized that everyone who is a kid at heart is waiting for it to rain everyday. Even the smallest cloud brings the biggest joy. We tell each other, we point at the cloud and exclaim – It will rain today. It is silly for the grumps. They will see the logged water, the wet clothes and whatever, Kids will see the magic.

Oh rain, pls come
