Rain is not just a word…

“Ooooohhh…. It’s rainingggg!!!”


I say this as I am in the terrace and watching rain. Billions of raindrops falling from the sky, thrumming on the roof.

I hear kids playing in the rain and singing the monsoon-special songs.

My heart leaps with joy. I feel a deep sense of calm and relief as I close my eyes, open my arms and feel the downpour.

It feels like everything is covered in a green blanket. I feel a cool breeze around that makes me wonder weather I am in heaven! With so much beauty surrounding me..

I can’t believe it’s here!

The season I waited for the whole year!

I cannot help but scream with joy. Does that sound silly? Or maybe childish? I don’t care.. I don’t care about anything when it rains. I just go all in and enjoy the beauty of nature that surrounds me.

I hear cuckoo chirping, somewhere on a tree.. even he must have been waiting eagerly for rain as I.

As I am stand there getting wet, mom calls in so that I don’t catch cold.

As I enter home I am longing for a cup of hot tea and some snacks.

In a while, me and Mom and busy cooking, as we hear the raindrops and smell the petrichor. Cooking feels different today, I am enjoying every single moment.

Sitting by the window with Mom, Dad and my small sister, drinking tea, eating snacks, chatting, laughing, feels like bliss.

As I get up to clean, I realise I’m never ever going to forget these days, where my family was smiling along with rain.

We had a very refreshing rain in the morning and I love it, the cool sensation and the rhythm of the drops😃 I can relate with you because talking and spending time with my family laughing around with snacks is bliss for me too🤗 I wish it would rain here cats and dogs as well😂
