First Rain

On the first week of June, Mumbai welcomed the monsoon of 2008. I watched it arrive, alone…which is probably the best way, with the rain.

The skies heralded the season of water.

And then I watched the drops paint the sidewalk a shiny, sheeny gloss of life.

The traffic revved, feet sped up and umbrellas burst open to the infinitely grey sky.

Did the colour grey ever stop you in your tracks? It did, me.
