here and there and again...all in the rain!



the feline's lazy stretch is interrupted midway and suddenly his fur springs up, electrified...the ears twitch continuously and in one leap the cat is at the window. looking out. disapprovingly. cats never liked water anyways. i am a different story.

like the parched earth, i too await the first rain...to drench in it. to let the water droplets spatter all over me in their fall from the heavens. to listen to the booming call of the thunder that promises more rain. to see the streaks of white lightening dart down from the skies, telling me that my wait is over. now is the time to indulge. rejuvinate. and i do what i always did as a child. run out and stand in the rain...

"for a while a part of me long gone, lives again in the rain."

...then i take the bike out for a ride. stop by at the chai-walla. but today i shall order a coffee. "ekdum kadak karna mausi." light up a cigarette. sit down and see the world pass by, some running helter-skelter to escape the downpour, others calmly soaking up like me. on the way back home it is the obvious stop at the paani puri walla. indulge me!

"the 'current' me has his own way of enjoying the rains. "

...today was the first rain of the season.

rains mean books. a few shorter hours spent picking up the right ones i would want to read...

...and long hours by the window reading whilst the rain drizzles outside.

pigeons are filthy birds. i never really liked them. to me they are pigs with wings. just that they are uglier. the cat too has a certain disdain for them. he merely swats at them with his paws...




...but they do make for being good subjects for the camera!

pot by the window. not pot-head by the window...

the pot by the window


the pot (b/w)


the water pipe


...and a few things beyond the window as well.

the lemon law is quite simple. Barney swears by it as do many economists (the Lemons & Plums story!)...


dumped lemons


...guess someone else does too. more than Barney and the economists!

eventually, we all come back home! but the real fun lies en route...

I love how you brought life to such small words... i could feel myself there... the photos were superb. it really takes an eye like that to find the beauty behind everything simple and quiet. I wish to write like that someday.

BRAVO!
