Rain n all that

Quick update .... It's pouring cats and dogs !!

The weather in Delhi's gotten so amazing.... a huuuge relief from the heat....however the roads are full of traffic jams and now it takes me double the time to get home from work :((

Rains and I have a history ...I don't remember if I've already discussed that...
Ever since I can remember, I used to HATE rains.... seriously.... Rains made me so gloomy...and so lonely, as I grew up....
that changed, however, and I don't really know when or why...
I would assume that it was because of a certain romantic association.... but Its not so, I hated rains then too.... but all of a sudden, I started to like it when it was drizzling....I started to enjoy standing in the rain and looking up at the sky...
even today, when it wasn't raining so heavily, I went outside office and bought a 'bhutta' ( roasted corn )...its really popular in north India...
but then I remembered that the corn fibres always get stuck in my teeth, and I hate that! So I ate the thing really carefully, but to no avail... the taste is amazing, but it gets so yeeuch afterwards, with the fibres ..




anywho, the status now is:
I don't hate the rains...although I don't love them either.
I do enjoy a light drizzle, though.
Rains no longer make me gloomy.... but oddly, when it rains, I kinda feel that I WANT to be sad..... that I want to feel what I felt earlier....a memory maybe? ..I just can't understand why....
Rains also make me want to sit next to a window, with a hot cup of coffee... with a good book perhaps...
Its amazing when the water's streaming down the glass....almost beautiful..

Have to end abruptly.....gotta wake up early tom....

Everyone is talking about rain!!! Nice to get another person like me who doesn't love rain neither hates it. You're right, it gets more irritating with those traffic jams.:(

Are those corns only roasted or they pour something on it? Here in Dhaka the bhutta-wallas pour some kind of chatney type of something (they didn't tell me the secret recipe!) on the roasted bhutta and it tastes amazing!!!

I never really liked the rains, made me gloomy and dull! But a 3+ year long stay in Delhi made me relook!

Now, I'm kinda tolerant, though I wish I don't have to travel to work on a rainy day ;)

I hate it when my feet gets dirty ... considering how filthy-ly dirty mumbai streets are! =|

interesting post...
infact i share the same love-hate relationship with rain. i really like to look at the rain drops swathing everything...the tiny drizzles leaving their mark on every surface they touch.
awesome....then again there is a difference between wet and DIRTY! (ughh!)
