Of all the seasons in India, rainy season is awaited the most. India is a hot country and rain is thus very beautiful and pleasant. The temperature during summers crosses 45 degrees thus making the lands hot and parched and the ponds and tanks dry. The water level in the well sinks thus increasing scarcity of water everywhere. The life between the hot sky and the hot land becomes miserable and human beings, beasts and birds, all begin to long for the rains.
The rainy season comes after summer. It brings relief from hot summer days. This season begins in the middle of June and lasts till September. During this season the sky is overcast and masses of clouds move about. Sometimes with rains there are storms, lightning and thunder too. A drop of rain falls upon my head. I look into the sky. Drops turn into showers and showers in downpours and the rainy season now sets in. Almost daily in the afternoons especially, the sky is overcast with grey or dark clouds. The cool wind begins to blow. Sometimes it rains and sometimes it does not, sometimes the clouds hover in the sky even in the morning and at night. It rains in the morning, in the afternoon, in the evening and during nights. The thunder and the lightening amidst the clouds make the nights horribly dark.
But the heat and dust of the summer days subsides. The temperature goes down to tens of degrees and the dust clouds turn into water full clouds. The atmosphere cools down all over. Cheers and joys return to life. The old, the youth and the children are cheerful. They come out in the open plains or in the roof. They bathe in the cool currents of rains and dance out in joy. The children float their mimic paper boats in some pool under the window of their houses. The young women swing from a tree. The farmers come out in open fields for cultivation. Birds of various colored feathers express their joy in their sweet notes. The peacocks dance on the hill tops or a mound. The cattle’s hop and jump in the meadows and in the field.
