Tip Tip Tip Tip Barish Shuru Ho Gayi...
Is anything more beautiful than rain..well many but it is one those lovely things of nature which I am crazy for. Being a pure cancerian – water sign, I love water..in all its beautiful forms. I am again watching this picture above and can feel the weather of that instant right now in my eyes, on my skin and deep in my heart. When I was young and we stayed in University campus, we had a big garden with trees and shrubs and my father invested a lot of effort keeping it beautiful. To water the plants, there was a circular little structure made of cement with a tap which was made to water plants. Being more of an introvert those days I used to hang around near that structure, my hands dipped into the water and playfully making designs around the boundary of the structure. I still remember those moments which were about 10 years back and love each moment.
Another memorable moment during my stay there was the dry soil in my garden with water gushing into our from the next garden. For the first and last until today time I witnessed this amazing phenomenon. I was studying in my room when my father called me and as usual I came running to him. He said “dekh wahan kitti tez barish ho rahi hai aur apne yahan bilkul nahi!!”. Now you must be wondering what is so unsual about this. Well, our and our neighbour’s gardens were adjacent to each other separated just with a fence. It was raining like cats and dogs in their garden and we were standing on dry sand. I was awestruck with this game of nature where for the first time I felt being teased by nature. Ohh..such heavy rainfall and no water on my skin! The overflowing water came to our garden and again had mixed feelings of disappointment and awe.
Rains are the most beautiful amongst all the weathers if you consider the loving feelings which blossom within the hearts of two people. It is the picture perfect if you imagine two people walking hand in hand together – clinging to each other in the same umbrella and cuddling into each other! Even the cool breeze feels like teasing them and splashes the drizzle on their faces..This is how nature naturally supports positive feelings on earth.
Rains are also an important aspect for movie makers and rain forms the most characteristic environmental indicator to picturize romantic or touchy moments.
