It is that time of the year again! Having lived through yet another summer in an air-conditioned office and car (thankfully, at home, we still prefer the fan most of the time) and not noticed much of it, the rains will definitely make their presence felt. The rains started somewhat early last week and continued through for most of the weekend.
Rains bring out many memories – and most of them relate to my school and college days. That is because one actually noticed and felt the rains so much more then. Now, the office cocoon has distanced me from the rains except seeing them beyond the water-proof glass partition. Getting drenched in the rains was so much fun – it is time to do it again perhaps!
I also wish we would take water-harvesting much more seriously, like they do in Chennai and some other parts of India. It is tragic to see so much rainwater just get wasted away.
