Wish it rains in torrents

Its become so hot lately that i wish it would rain in torrents.But then this would be part a selfish wish, part a selfless one..selfish because i wouldnt be thinking of the many impoverished people staying in make-shift abodes, would be such a pain for them..selfless because i know all the city people like me must be disgusted with the heat and praying to Meghraja(the King of Clouds) to be generous to them..and let it rain so that we can chill madi n not remain sakat hot like they say in Radio Mirchi these days....

Well, it did rain today, only for a few minutes, though it did provide a welcome relief from the usual heat that bangloreans are not accustomed to..and frankly speaking, i have begun to like bangalore..totally unlike the feeling i had when i felt alienated in bangalore, partially because of the weather, and also because i was fresh out of college,callow, like a new coat of paint which takes time to dry...what would i call myself now? mmmm, well cant definitely say dried paint...lol.maybe i can say fast color...now i know people are going to laugh at this analogy i have tried to draw...

i think i have strayed from my focus in this blog, 'Rain' , i just love the rain..and its a hackneyed statement,nevertheless, i would say it, the idea of a steaming cup of coffee alongwith savoring pakodaas & simply enjoying and silently appraising the pleasant monsoon..today i saw a gulomohar tree laden with scarlet red flowers after it rained and what a sight it was! the droplets gleaming like pearls formed a line on the branch..breathtakingly beautiful..and the fresh green lawns, myriad varieties of all plants, trees stood out because of their viridity and lush green appearance bestowed on them by the showers..

Sometimes i am grateful to God to have created simply amazing things that surround us and what we call as Nature, the environment in our vicinity which actually uplifts us many a times and that too asking for so much less in return...
