Yesterday evening heavy rains lashed bangalore city
And todays lunch table discussion @ office was about rain :-) Not the seasonal rains during monsoon but the unexpected rains during summer!
Some people said, they felt very gloomy and down on rainy days. They said they didnt feel like working and no inspiration
Some said, roads are bad. Traffic jams, clothes dont dry. Cant go out etc etc
Most of the people said they feel very romantic. Ideal for a light dinner, romancing with better-half/girl friend etc etc
I dont know what rain has to do with romance
My team mates(everyone in my team except me are married :-D) leave office dot on time, on the days of rain ;-)
One of my friend proposed to his girl, @ marine drive mumbai when it was raining!! They are happily married and have a 16 month old son. Thats a different story :-)
For me it is fun. I love playing in rain.
I cant dance in middle of the road like this guy:-( It happens only in movies. But I found a better alternative. I love taking my bike and going on a ride when its raining. First few minutes, I get completely wet. Then its lovely. Cant drive the bike fast and visibility is also poor. My helmet has a dark glass and I need to keep it half open for the visibility. Dont get much road grip because of the wet surface. True. It is a bit tough riding in these conditions, but still the thrill is amazing. Especially the feeling when I stop the bike in between for signals. I dont know how to call it. It is something in between goosepimples and shivering. wow. Its fun. Somehow I feel that it shakes off all the laziness in me.
It is fun to watch small kids with colorful raincoats walking in rain. And it amuses me the way people ride the 2 wheelers.
Some dare devils tie some polythene on their head and ride their bikes like crazy. Some KD kaN1000s wear rain suits like neil armstrong and ride at 20 km speed.
And I am reminded of my days in Kothrud, Pune. I had a suzuki samurai.
I used to go in either the mulshi road or sinhagad road. Stop somewhere in the middle, have garma garam vada pav and tea :-) and continue with my journey. It was great and an amazing stress reliever!
Afterwards reach home, change and watch the rain from balcony!!!
I miss pune :-((
