Monsoon is here. Rains have begun and its pouring heavily. I have always found the rain very calming. It brings a sense of peacefulness as i sit by my window watching the rain. People running here and there, kids laughing and wearing colorful raincoats coming home from school, vendors still doing their job but with two umbrellas over their head. I love the sound of heavy rain and thunder on a dark night. Its one of the most calm things i have experienced in my life. A rainy day is a perfect day to get lost in a world of books. Nothing beats that!
I often think of myself as a Pluviophile. It means someone who is a lover of rains and finds joy and peace of mind during rainy days. Reading a good book, eating fritters with a cup of tea, and just hearing the sound of rain clinking through the roof and window is a place of solace that i would happily live in forever. The sound of rain soothes me and the smell of earth after the rains is perfect.
There are things that often remind us of someone. For me, rains, is one such thing that reminds me not of someone or something but of a feeling i never knew i missed. A feeling of love, peace and calm, a feeling of happiness and joy, and of pure innocence. Rains are here and i wouldnt wish to be anywhere but here.
Happy Monsoon To All!!
