I have grown…

It has been 2 years since I have gotten wet in the rain willingly and enjoyingly. I realized it yesterday as I walked towards a cultural event at IIT cribbing and feeling grumpy about getting wet. I saw college kids walking in the rain with a smile. It has been raining heavily since so many days and I missed the sun and its shine.

There was a time when I smiled everytime it rained, now I scolded my husband for walking on drainage water. When did I become this I don’t know.

Maybe I have matured, maybe become responsible or just become sensible… I don’t know.. more so, I am not sure that I like it.

Just observing nd wondering what will come next.

Have you EVER?

Have you ever been so alone in the world when it was gently raining and heard the soft laugh of rain on your umbrella?

Have you ever been so alone with nature/God/Love/Universe …whatever u might want to call it…

Have you ever tried to move the umbrella and let the soft rain caress you?

Have you ever seen the shadow of the dancing trees in the yellow street light and felt it in tandem with the giggling rain?

Have you ever heard music that you have never knew existed?

Have you ever realized how content you are with life and realized that you are smiling

Have you ever seen a dog with one ear up and one ear down and let your smile turn into laughter as you pass him by?

Have you ever been so much in love with Love and Life?

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.

Can Hardly wait!!!!

Every part of my heart is waiting for it to rain. The weather is just right. The air is just right. Though not everything is perfect but it sure is gonna rain today.

My heart skips a beat every time there are birds on my roof because it sure does sound like rain, Oh God!, Let it rain. Don’t tease us with a slight shower… Just come and drown us in your love.

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
