I decided to pen my words on the rain drops of Bangalore the moment I stepped out of my house today. I always refer to drenching in ran as a tribute to Yash Raj films, or probably the Bollywood theme... If you are an ardent fan of Bollywood, most of the cutting edge scenes takes place in the rain..the fights, the break up, the proposals, the kissing sequence too :).
I am a Mysorean at heart, but the career and family vows have tied me down to Bengaluru. I rarely enjoy the climate of Bengaluru and the rain is one such moment. Though there has been cases where the Bangalore rain has left the city havoc, but by God's grace it has not reached to a level of pressing a panic button like in the cases of Mumbai rains. Said and done back to the drizzling, romantic, enduring, nostalgic rain!!!!
Getting drenched in the rain is always fun since childhood days, especially if you have the company of your friends to join you. It was in Bangalore back in 90's when I had actually enjoyed and played in the rain with my cousins. Getting drenched always makes you crave for the garma garam pakodas and bajjis, but I prefer Hot Chocolate or a yummy spice Bhutta, especially when you order the vendor to make it spicy with lots of green chilly masala and lime..yum!!!. I have even enjoyed the most romantic days in the rain on a bike, inspired by RHTDM songs nevertheless thanks to my the then Boyfriend(And present Husband) for his CBZ rides to Srirangapatna near Mysore.
Rainy days are always recommended to rekindle your love and relationship, be it having an Ice cream with your sibling, or a spicy pani puri and bhutta with your friends, cuddling inside the blanket with your favourite novel or just sipping Hot coffee with your family and the best thing is to stand under a tree hand in hand with the love of your life!!
I bet all of us have tried most of the things mentioned above, but personally the rain always makes me go nostalgic, its like being in a trance and love every bit of life, it always brings a smile on my face irrespective of the current happenings of the world, and I just say "Life hai yaar, take it easy"
