oN a rAINy dAy!

01 Apr

I love the pitter patter of the rain drops…..The strange but familiar smell of the wet mud….the droplets on green leaves and the dark clouds…..With spring bidding adieu (in Bangalore it is spring most of the times) and monsoon knocking the door, poor summer dint get its share this time. But for a change Bangalore was surprisingly pretty hot in the month of March. It reached upto 38 degrees which is like soaring hot considering that Bangalore’s climatic conditions are very good and not extreme like other states.

A few observations & incidents that took me by surprise ๐Ÿ™‚

There is a cute little 5 months old pup opposite my home, he kept starig at the sky when it started drizzling. I was wondering why and what was he doing, but then realised that it was his first rain ๐Ÿ™‚

Bangalore weather sometimes behaves crazy, like eccentric! I remember there was this one day when it drizzled for 2 minutes and then would be sunny and this kept repeating for some 2 hours.

Bangalore used to be called the garden city. Very soon it will be called gardenless city as trees are being uprooted right left and center.

Malls are opening up every other month…..So people are more prone to spending time in Malls shopping and watching movies than socializing.

Auto drivers in Bangalore will always charge you over and above the meter whether it is morning, noon, evening or night. Big cheaters!

Well like everyother developing city, Bangalore too is loosing its charm and is becoming too commercial. Well can’t do mcuh about it!

    I remember Bangalore downpours and the mild weather very well. In 1971 we didnt have any fans in the house… nor ever needed any quilts.

    Ah… Nothing like a fresh dose of rain to refresh everything around… The wet mud is such an awesome scent… You hav a keen eye to notice the pup’s reaction to the first rain… very commendable ๐Ÿ™‚
    Kinda sad to know that the city is losing its charm… I hope it retains many of its gardens.. Its a USP of b’lore… The perfect cure to a cheating autowala is to either travel by bus or by personal transport… which alternative would you prefer?
