Mumbai woke up to gorgeous rains today and other cities are also gearing up for monsoons now. One the of most loved seasons that give us relief from the sun is here to stay. It’s not only full of colourful umbrellas, paper boats and bhuttas, but also teaches you many lessons. We jot down the top ten…read on:
Health is wealth:
Rains bring a host of diseases, thanks to the dirty, stagnant water. So it becomes important to take care of our health during this season. In fact, the sudden change in the season can also cause fevers, cold and other ailments. No other season teaches you about your health like monsoons.
The child in you:
The child in you comes out during rains. You are tempted to build paper boats, play race-race with others and indulge in crazy fun that’s reminiscent of your childhood.
Romance and mush:
Who doesn’t love to hang out under a single umbrella with ‘Pyar Hua Ikrar Hua’ playing in the background? It’s the cheapest and most romantic date ever! Also, let’s not forget the bhajjiyas, pakoras and bhuttas you and your lover can indulge in…awww.
Coming home on time:
Believe it or not, rains make you want to come back home before it gets dark. Even the most ‘social’ of you would be fluttering back home as you don’t want to get caught in traffic jams or hold-ups due to the rains.
Ghar ka khana:
We know monsoons can wreck havoc with your diet and food. It’s very important to eat home-cooked food so you don’t fall ill. Your mummy’s dabbas become your saviour this season!
You’ll know who your friends are!
Yes! Ask for an extra umbrella during a mad pour and only your best pal will be ready to lend you his. What better way to find out who is your friend and who is not than staking them out during the monsoons?
Such is life…
This phrase will become the mantra during the rains, trust us. Your long-planned birthday party will get cancelled due to the rains, wedding receptions can get rescheduled, trains and flights will refuse to move, and even random plans will fly out the window.
Gloom and depression:
How much ever we curse the heat and the sun, nothing cheers us up like a bright and sunny day. Rains bring a sense of gloom and doom with them, which can totally depress us.
Going back to books:
Massive rains can take out electricity and internet connections and you will be left with only your books and magazines for entertainment. You’ll realise why reading a book siting against the window sill and sipping coffee while watching the rains is the best feeling in the world.
House parties galore!
Since going out is not much of a option, you’d be forced to have house parties that will turn out to be super fun. Yummy finger-foods, bunch of crazy friends, nice and warm rum by the side and dropping rains outside. W.O.W!
If reliving your childhood is important to you, if the simple joys of life meant the world to you, embrace rains and have a happy monsoon!
Don’t worry about the minor problems they bring along, it’s worth it…
