Listen to the rains bringing music from afar...

The wind blew in gusts and swept the vast and sylvan lands. It brought rains with it with an amazing force. My umbrella proved too delicate and made me face the fury of torrential downpour. My first instinct was to run for shelter. The rains were deadly in their resolve and bang on target in their punch.*

It was a real treat to see the leaves all washed and glowing. They seemed to be sporting a new shade of green. The droplets were being blown and carried away by the strong wind. Problem of getting wet no longer burdened my brain. I was beginning to find it simply irresistible.

"The last time you did this, you fell ill", the little interfering voice from within seemed to be telling me. Still. I had enjoyed it then as long as I had not fallen ill. So, what the heck!

After pouring for hours, the force of nature relented. Clouds cleared and made way for sun at last. As the blue turned crimson, the place was left strewn with twigs and an amazing mix of shades of green. As crimson melted into darkness, I was down with shivering and soon bed-ridden with high temperature. I must admit that sometimes I go overboard.

This is a page from past - from my graduation days.

One thing that I have lost in my growing up years is to let rains fall directly on my face. I am more worried about getting wet now. Although the beautiful image of trees silhouetted against the clouds still gives me the same thrill; I am not able to go all out and face the rains as I used to back then. As I write this, somewhere deep inside I know that I will go all out when it rains next.

Without stating the obvious that one should not go overboard or anything like that, I will only say that feeling the rain drops on your face can assuage your over-burdened nerves - especially for ones who live in big and busy cities.

To those of you who live in places blessed with dense foliage, you know how beautiful it can get after it ceases to rain. Nothing can match the beauty of droplets dancing on the leaves. Further nothing can surpass the beauty of haze created due to density of droplets in air.

So my advice on getting wet in the rains is to go all out. Chase a cloud. Feel the rain and spend some good time on yourself. Whistle a tune. Do some splashing in the puddle. Enjoy this force of nature to its fullest before it assumes a furious magnitude. Absorb the beauty of everything so seductive in their jade loveliness. Listen to droplets fall on tin shades and produce a resonant metallic hum.

When you are done remember to have a hot cup of tea or coffee!You will find a new taste in that same old tea or coffee.

Take that old love letter of yours written long ago but never sent. Make a paper boat of it and watch it flow with the rain water. Better still if you have got a negligible salary hike and are not able to come to terms with it then take that hike letter and make it into a paper boat. Let that boat carry your disappointments away from you to some unknown destination.

Look up! Dare to stare at rains - straight into her eyes.

Let thoughts of temporary illness not deter your resolve to listen to the rains bringing music from above and beyond.
