When it rains #WordsMatter

What makes us humans is our experiences in life. These experiences give us a personality and choice. When a certain event occurs, we recollect those experiences and memories.

Rains are one such event which brings in a lot of memories. It is a season of recollecting memories and making many more.

Rains are visually appealing for some. Mother nature looks green all around. So soothing to see lush green mountains with waterfalls. People bond over trekking and go places to see the nature’s serenity and thus creating a memory to remember, when it rains.

Rains can be devastating too. Rivers overflow, landslides happen, animals die, humans die. News reporting of such incidents leaves us feeling terrible. A sad memory to remember, when it rains.

Early morning rains are simply bewitching. Trees swaying in the cold breeze and birds chirping in a melodic tune, gives a mesmerising feeling which cleans your soul, when it rains.

Some people bond over a good book and a hot cup of coffee or maggi, when it rains.

Introverts will find a good reason to cancel plans, when it rains.

Onion bhajiya, bhutta, wada pav, samosa are must try foods, when it rains.

Traffic, water logging, muddy water getting splashed on us as vehicles zoom by and getting drenched even with raincoat on is a common scenario, when it rains.

Some just like to sit by the window and watch the rains, feel the rains. Someone laughs, someone dances,someone cries, recollecting a memory, when it rains.

Rainbows that come out with the rain bring hope and peace to the soul. For some, rain helps to forget the pain or hide the pain. There is something magical in the raindrops which brings peace that cannot be found elsewhere. Best feeling comes, when it rains.

So did you make memories this rainy season, so that you can reminisce them next time, when it rains.

  1. First, let me just say that waterfall photo is STUNNING. The rainbow’s my second favorite. Then you wrote, “Introverts will find a good reason to cancel plans, when it rains.” – Got me figured out, all right! But I’m still waiting on that “rainy season.” Not too eagerly, as September is the worst month of the hurricane season and I’m hoping we catch a break. But all these “When it rains…” posts drove me outside to play in the lawn sprinkler, anyway, today!

  2. That rainbow across the hill is so pretty. I do have lots of rainy day memories. Now since I work from home I love rainy days because I don’t have to worry about the commute and the mess on the roads.

  3. You have touched upon almost all aspects of rains right from the beauty it brings to nature to the devastation it can cause. My favourite line is Introverts canceling plans due to the rain. It is such a valid excuse to stay away from people tucked at home citing the traffic issues. By the way, I loved all the photos and I would like to know the names of the places in the photos.

  4. I loved the rainbow at the end of the post just as I loved the entire post. Somehow it seemed to capture the season perfectly – calm and cool , very welcome after the hot summer. This monsoon my memories were mainly made of sniffling noses and chesty colds……I’m glad the rains are coming to an end.
