March- April is hot summer, but there’s always a relief with a few days of summer rain.
Of late the welcome summer rain has started showing it’s might. With gusty wind, powerful and sudden buildup and sheets of intense rain drops, the atmosphere is a bit scary. To make it worse, you can see and fear some bursts of thunder and lightning.
Some people called the rain, a couple of days back, a cyclone. We just managed that day to close the balcony doors and windows against some powerful wind. A few trees were uprooted in the locality.
Today it was milder and I just managed to step into the balcony to take a slow motion video of the rain over the backwaters.
In spite of all the fierceness, it’s beautiful and certainly cools things down.
But the South West monsoon in July-August is much bigger, quieter from thunder and extremely enjoyable, whether inside or outside driving.
The only prayer is that it will not bring in the floods.
