Monsoon Memories

It’s been raining continuously since last night. The rains began since day-before yesterday and the weather is so beautiful ! Overcast skies, a cool breeze blowing and ‘raindrops falling on my face’ :)
This morning, on my way to office, I was singing loudly on the bike, as I usually do in the rains. I was happily singing rain songs :) I remembered that long ago I had written about the images that such weather brings. I dug it up, re-read it and felt so refreshed. I felt I had to share it again…with some additions. So here are the images conjured by the rains...
Rushing out in the garden to get drenched in the first rain....
Leaving the sit-out door open, sitting in the door, with a cup of tea in one hand and a book in the other with music in the background...
Sudden burst of excitement in office as somebody shouts while running out, “There’s a hail-storm…lets go to the terrace”…running to the terrace with friends in office, gathering hailstones and eating them gleefully like children…
Hur…
