Finally … Rains !

Bhagwan Varuna kept teasing us right through June. See the picture below taken on June 17th. It looked like there would be rains after all. Except for a drizzle and a rain of sweat 🙄, nothing happened.

Rains - June 17 picture
This is how overcast the sky was on June 17…. but no rains.

For the past three days, it has been so humid that we have had to change our dresses a couple of times during the day. One couldn’t stay away from a fan or an Air conditioner. I keep a de-humidifier box in the wardrobes because I don’t like the musty smell :(:(. The containers overflowed with the moisture getting captured at the bottom as water.

Yesterday, Amma kept saying its Amavasya so it will rain. Finally today morning, it did pour. Even right now, its raining and what a welcome sight it is. We love everything about the rains – the sound, overcast sky, the smell of the Earth as the rains fall on parched ground…

This video is from when it just started to rain 👇

The following video is from inside the car when the rains intensified.

Coincidentally on 92.7 Red FM, the song being played was “Koi Ladki Hai” from the movie Dil Toh Pagal Hai. There is a special connect with this song and the movie because Krishnan and I moved to Delhi in 1997 and that was the year this movie was released.

The immortal Lata Mangeshkar sang the song. Not my favourite song but its just a special memory.

Enjoy the song and Madhuri Dixit’s dancing ! What a dancer … Let me see if I can make Pakoras to enjoy the weather even more. 😁
