Yes yes..you are back with a bang arent you!
Much needed, much looked forward for, much in demand and you are the toast of the town and the apple of the eye. You know you are a much awaited celebrity and you sure have announced your arrival with a flourish that few can match.
I know the world cannot function without rains and as a student of science and a woman who uses water on daily basis I know even I cant function without you. For the past seven monsoons I have tried to develop a love-like relationship with you, but we both have our own hang ups eh? We both dont seem to like each other very much.
I promise you, dear rains, that I have tried hard, very very very hard to like you, love you, look forward to you, listening to people call you romantic, etc etc..but I admit with despair that I am a worthless cause. However hard people try to convert me, I seem to disappoint them. I confess, dear rains, I dont like you one bit.
I have tried to associate you with the long rides of bikes with a loved one,
I have tried to associate you with hot chai and yummy spicy hot bhajiyas,
I have tried to associate you with watching from a window listening to your pitter patter,
I have tried to associate you with sitting on a rocking chair, under a blanket with a loved one
and etc etc…but sorry! I still dont think I like you too much..so so sorry about it.
For the next three months, the world will see an irritated RM, bugged RM, an RM’s whose mood will be plummeting like the price of crude oil during the economic downturn!
I so wish, that the city of Mumbai would a bit more prepared to welcome you!
I wish the roads didnt get flooded even before you came once
I wish the public transport was strong enough to resist your downpour
I wish the trains didnt run late and the ricks didnt stop working
I wish the clothes dried by themselves without issues
I wish I could blink my eyes and reach my office without wetting my entire dress and sitting in office with wet clothes
I wish I had the insight to carry an extra pair of clothes with me
I wish I had the brains to buy a raincoat instead of suffering under an umbrella which is actually of NO USE!
but most of all, I so so wish, I learnt to fall in love with you.
Your completely wet
