WOW!! Finally the rains are here in Mumbai, It’s been a real hot and humid summer and all were eagerly waiting for respite from this heat.

And here as I sit at my computer table at 11.30 at night, I can hear the putter patter of rain drops on my window sill and it’s like music to my ears. I love love love when it rains.. Sheer pleasure.

RAIN and rainy days are my idea of simple pleasure. I get as much pleasure in sitting at my window sill looking out at the rainy pouring down as I get while out in the open and soaking in this wonderful thing called rain.

I do not know why but my whole attitude changes when it rains, I become more calm more relaxed and do not think the daily chores as a burden I enjoy doing everything that normally I would get bored doing.

Smell the rains; feel the light breeze, the first shower brings with it this earthy fragrance that can be enjoyed only when experienced. I can smell that right now wafting through my window and let me tell you it’s the best natural scent that one can ever experience. It becomes refreshingly cool after the hot and humid weather.

I found this quote on the web:

And when it rains on your parade, look up rather than down. Without the rain, there would be no rainbow.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
