Its raining!! Its raining!! The weather is sexy since the past week and I cant help but sing and jump with joy!!

Bangalore is cozy at 21 Celsius. Nah!! not the usual hot pakoras or chai!!

The real fun is

- To wear stark white pants and walk in the slush and challenge yourself how white the pants are by the time you reach home

- To enjoy yummylicious ice cream while walking in the light drizzle.

- To walk getting wet when its pouring and everyone running away looking for cover while giving you an awkward stare that you have gone insane.

- To sway the branches and the leaves and feel the chill water drops on your face

- When the rain stops, hear the birds chirp and the cuckoo sing, the squirrel scampering :-)

The earth, barren and wretched
The grass, yellow and dry
Waiting to forget the pain
Waiting to feel the drops of rain
The first drops fall, they start to cry
Tears, dripping from the leaves
Tears, running down from the mountains
The dark rain clouds, start to crumble
The lighting thunder, start to gleam
The heaven opens, the tears roll down
Is God crying? So that we can smile?
See the rain coming down
Rain touching my face
Smell the fresh wet soil
Feel the damp grass now lush
Dancing across the fields
Bringing joys to life
Tapping against the window panes
Pitter-patter on the roof tops
Come dance in the rain
Slosh the puddles
sway the greens
Feel no sorrow, feel no pain
Feel complete in the rain.
Soothing the soul
Caressing the heart
Inviting the spirit
To feel peace and rest.

One of my favorite picture during rains :-)


  1. Thanks for passing the mood on to me yaar. :-) Love it. The other it was sunny here and it was raining. There were two rainbows, and how can I explain my ecstasy when I was looking at the rain trying to follow each droplet to see how perfect a sphere it formed. As each of those droplets splashed on my cheek, I could see the splatter shine under the sun. A heavenly feeling indeed. :-) Thanks for reminding me of many such wonderful days. :-)

  2. Oh yes...rains are just amazing!!
    White pants in rains... what's your recipe...Surf Excel or Vanish or Tide??
    Oh yes, the staring part (getting those weird looks) is fun!! :P
    And that smell of rains everywhere...Ah, we need rains here!! :)

  3. Very lovely picture. Very nice angle. What a force of rain water in the stream and lovely surrounding green fields and mountains full of clouds. Nice scene.
