Due to the water shortage in Bangalore, esp in my locality.. we've been trying to economise our water usage. We now pump water from our well for non-edible purposes. Quite alot of work if one has to do it daily... but we are all used to it by now. We've been doing it for nearly 2-3 months now...
So the other day when it we had a downpour in Bangalore for nearly 2 hours, all over the city.
I couldnt help thinking :
"What alot of water is going waste!"
Then I caught myself horrified!!
I LOVE THE RAINS! ADORE IT.. ITS THE MOST ROMANTIC ELEMENT OF NATURE!
And look at me... worried about even enjoying it. But thats what its come to!
BUT!this was when the downpour occurred, when I was travelling by car.
The day before that...when I was at home.. and it just rained.. moderately ...
I saw the most beautiful sight... :)
Colours of the rain
Green... greeen... lush greens... wet.. shining... singing... whistling... swaying.
My neem tree swayed and her large hairdo was ruffled and shaken..
My christmas tree stood as tall as possible.. but shook a bit.. (I giggled as I personified them)
My maroon car stood wet and shiny... brand new.. looking happy.
Yes I felt their happiness too.
The road ... dark, silver, greyish, black...
I felt dreamy... felt good.. Felt the wind.
The pleasant chill.
The water sprayed at me through the window.
I smiled. Kept smiling.
