R is for rain clouds:

Dark menacing clouds over Shivalik hills during monsoon season.

For us young children decades back, rainy season was a much awaited event. It afforded us thrill, excitement and that indescribable feeling of getting drenched while coming back from school with our friends. Laughing and hopping around trying to save our school bags under our frocks, unmindful of the cares of the world used to be uniquely exhilarating. The special treatment our mothers gave us- changing into crisp clothes, eating or drinking  something hot after being tucked into  bed. It was all heavenly.

Coming back to the present, who does not love the floating clouds giving some hope of cool showers, when the earth is parched, plants are withering and our bodies haven been scorched in the extremely hot summer months. The clear blue sky and sometimes that nature's magic in the form of a rainbow bowls us over completely.

Rains have a calming effect on the senses. They make us reflective. The rich and luxuriant natural beauty after a heavy spell of rain drowns all the existential negativity. Every droplet of rain is a priceless gift of nature to mankind.

If occasionally rains disrupt life, it is usually our lopsided planning!

Friends, welcome here as always! Pl. share your take on rains.

    Living in a place where the sunshine is the exception, I could see rain far enough... but have also lived in places, such as India, where that rain is so very very important and I am reminded never to take it for granted! YAM xx

    1. Absolutely Yamini,we should never take rain for granted. In India there are areas where it does not rain at all or it rains scantily. People there hold YAJNAS to propitiate Rain Gods for blessings of rain.

  5. Totally with you on rain – an inspiration for many alike! Wonderful view on the rain clouds and valley beneath. I love rain over mountains which is quite refreshing look at the fresh lush green.
