I have been waiting and yearning with bated breath to have a glimpse of the clear blue sky wearing a new grey coat and yes, its finally raining and pouring cats and dogs here in Mumbai City…and I am ecstatic : )
The rains have always been my favourite season and I am so much at bliss during the monsoons. As I kid, I used to feel that when God was happy and He had a hearty laugh, tears would roll down His cheeks and it would rain…!! It was a sign of His Happiness which came down as blessing soothing the dry, arid and burning minds of all His Children!
What immense joy and pleasure it is to see the green trees having a celebration of sorts with Beautiful Mommy Nature, dancing, swaying, endlessly giggling and passing on all their happy vibes to souls like me who then join in their party!
Water falling from the Heaven’s fountain and for a long four months…its sure a cleansing process I feel. The washing and bathing of the dusty, clogged minds and hearts and love being flowed incessantly into our hungry souls…That’s the beauty of the rains…from the Heaven’s own intricately carved white marble fountain : )
With all our the sorrows and bitterness being washed away it sure makes my heart bloom to see My Eternal Soulmate being happy after a long long time!
As I write these words sitting in my office as it pours heavily outside, I cant seem to focus enough on where these words are flowing…the breeze touching my face and asking me to come out and play with it and the trees inviting me to have a tea break..;)
The rains have such a calming effect on me and I just keep having bouts of amnesia forgetting all my worries and petty issues which usually keep bothering me, thanks to me brooding temperament.
Like me, Kunal too is such a nature lover and our talks about its captivating beauty especially during the monsoons seem to be endless! Over a hot cup of tea, he usually comes up with all those topics that he would otherwise not open up with and I am so peacefully hearing out all his talks (without the slightest irritation ;) and he says it’s the magic of rains that his sister has become such a good girl so instantly! I agree with him, after all it’s the magic of His Laughter remember??!!
Rains come every year and bring with it so many nostalgic moments and cherished memories of my loved ones especially my father, who too was a die hard romantic at heart and an ardent rain lover..all the moments I shared with him liven up this time of the year and there was never any monsoon without his loving thought and even now as I write these words I have a photo of his near me and can feel his blessed aura :)
My only consolation is that he is with Him sharing the joyous laughter and having a goodtime : )
From your mad little sweety and kuni..who are still stumbling without you..we so dearly miss you and your Love..every moment and every heartbeat…
May you always be happy and have that million dollar smile on your face everytime you see us march ahead and put up a brave front :))
Happy Monsoons to you Papa :)
