Its raining.. its raining.. its raining..

Its raining.. its raining.. its raining…

Its raining and the sky is lit up by a million lights. There’s thunder and lightening in the air. The entire dark magenta sky lights up, and turns into a beautiful canvas of colors. Colors that are not listed in the seven colors by the creators. Raindrops hit the tin roof with a light pitter-patter which warms the heart. Mmmmm.. the smell of freshly wet earth. No fragnance on earth can match this heavenly smell.

Its raining.. its raining.. its raining..

The roads have been washed out clean, the silhoutte of the trees lights up everytime the sky lights up. There will be puddles on the roads tomorrow. Little puddles of mud and water.. where children will play and dirty their hands. The side gutters will fill up and the street urchins will dip in for their swimming lessons.

Its raining.. its raining.. its raining…

A million colored umbrellas will adorn the masses. Black will be dominant and others will be like specs of vibrancy among darkness. People will step out to get drenched in the pounding rains. Couples will walk long walks on bandstand, all the while enjoying the rain from their shared umbrella. Pretty multi-colored umbrellas will be twirlled by children, couples and happy singles. Open-air cafes will pull out their huge metre long umbrellas. Hotels will be packed with people taking refuge from the rain. Plants will spring to life and it will slowly become cool.

Its raining.. its raining.. its raining..

Vilasrao Deshmukh will have to answer a lot of questions about why the digging and constructions have not been completed by the times rains have set in. Traffics will be all the more jammed and people will curse the roads, the systems and the politicians and the rains…

Its raining… its raining.. its raining…

    yea Pragni,
    Its raining… its raining.. its raining…

    as xpected the rains are finally here,well before Rain Day (4th June)The Rain Gods have answered all mumbaikar’s prayers, hope people have prayed only for a few drops (last year was horrifc & sometimes I hate being nostalgic…)

    let’s forget the traffic, dug roads, dirt & all the filth for a while and just enjoy the million droplets fallin from the sky.

    Selvin, I dont even want to think about last year. And Mr. Deshmukh had better stand true to his promise that a second 26/7 wont happen. I sure did enjoy the drenched to the bone and am lovin’ it….

    Vijay, I agree, Pray in moderation. Too much of anything is harmful, and we’v already seen that one proved haven’t we all??

    Hai the traffic in Andheri just worse now. Rain have mercy ! Or should I say Mr. Deshmukh have mercy….

    ….but then, the traffic in Andheri East is always bad. And I have a grandstand view from office.

    So, is Mr. Vilasrao Deshmukh going to spank Mr. Johnny Joseph, or is he going to be spanked by Ms. Sonia Gandhi?

    Any takers?

    I blame your post for making the rain go away. its so damn hot and humid just now.

    why did u have to rejoice so much when it came ! Now it has gone away and left us high and dry. All because of your post on MB
