tip tip tip tip baarish...

Its raining elephants & giraffe's here. :-|

It was just a few days ago when i was praying for the rains.Almost all my facebook status messages revolved around how hot and stuffy it was getting and how the parched earth desperately needed some friendly showers for life to feel human again.

I guess it was more because of my utter frustration and incessant rants that the weather man up there decide to oblige and grant me the favour. (people who know me would know how irritatingly persuasive i can get)

so, yes its raining...and yes, im sulking again :(

Why you ask?? cmonnn...i am aware of the 'jab woh deta hai, toh chhappar phaad ke deta hai' philosphy et al, but this is ridiculous----its been pouring like there's no tomorrow!!! :-|

Murky roads, mornings which could very well pass off as nights in a clockless world, unwanted memories which somehow seep back into life like the raindrops through a leaking roof, roadside swimming contests while on the way to work and back, cold nights, fungus covered walls, frizzy hair days, getting caught while dozing during work hours, cases of malaria & typhoid & if not that, atleast sinusitis.....you get the drift dont you?
To top it all, i now renalise why there are maximum suicide cases reported in seattle---the gloomy weather is the culprit.

Much to my disgust, i am repeatedly reminded of the famous "dekho baarish ho rahi, its raining..its raining..its raining..." & the equally annoying line following it.
eyuccckkk!! my mind plays mean tricks on me at times :-|

Thinking of it, i am a little scared...how can i desperately want & hope for something one day and hate it with equal intensity on the next??
Ive always been a sucker for the rains..the hopeless romantic right from my teenage years (when the hormones kicked in) who thrived on corny bollywood flicks & romantic day dreams with a very thin line of difference in between.

As the years went and the juvenile rush of hormones stabilised, so did the idea of romance.but my love for the rains remained intact..err atleast until a few days ago..or so i thought.

so what happened now?
Have i grown old & cynical..turned jaded & bitter? is it time to buy a cat yet?? :-|

or is this nature's crazy way of giving me a 'sign'----a 'sign' to reconsider?

a 'tip' to tell me that i need to confirm that today's priorities are still the same as yesterday's?

Rain is good. Enjoy it while it lasts :-)

Perhaps, its a sign that you can have the things you love, you can have it all, even if you don't like it all.
So, better start loving it, or it will continue to rain until you start loving it :D

I like drizzles over a long time, and short downpours in little spells. And fog.
But I thought it rained cats and dogs, now elephants and giraffes are raining too? :D

Cheers,

pri said...

@ cinderella

pri said...

@ roshan

I've this sudden urge to be honest with you (maybe bcoz ur one gal who appreciated a guy's point of view on my blog, not quite sure).

To be true, people rarely visit my blog, so when someone does, I make it a point to go back and post something back, just to keep them coming you know.

So here I came, and I was disappointed. The first two are poetry and then we have a philosophy, neither of which I can comprehend.

I was almost leaving but you look like a good looking girl through that translucent glass (which in case you aren't does a great job :P). Glad to find this post as I hate the rains with all my heart too.

P.S. Don't pay attention to me, you have a great blog.
