On a beautiful rainy day I met life… and we had so much in common...
I was returning home from office today and suddenly these rain drops started falling on the wind shield of my car. Soon enough dark cloudy sky, lightning and thunder followed. I felt as if suddenly the whole atmosphere around me changed and got into the fun mode. I watched people carrying their umbrellas, running around protecting themselves from the water and not letting even a single drop of rain come in contact with their body.
I took my hand out of the car and felt the lovely rain on my finger tip. I leaned on the window and stared at how rain drops fall from the sky. Soon enough, I was tempted to get myself drenched… I gave a look at my rare view mirror, blinked at myself…. [Yes, I do that quite often when I am alone n in some witty mood ;-) ] and came out of my car with my umbrella in hand. I stopped for couple of minutes on the road observing the scattered queue of people somehow afraid to get wet.
In few moments, I don’t know what happened to me and I threw away my umbrella and allowed the beautiful drops of rain kiss my face and body. A unique smile came on my face. I looked up in the sky, closed my eyes and, felt the drops of water drip down my face giving me feel of a freedom. And may be some thing more….
I was completely soaked. My long stiletto was off my feet by then and I found myself enjoying the rain barefoot J Trust me it felt absolutely heavenly… I felt like splashing all the puddles around. The concrete shivers, the chillness sending down the spine…. Ah… I knew I may get cold but do I actually care when I am experiencing something so heavenly? Nah! It was like romancing with the nature… and allowing those silver little drops kiss you… The smell of rain on the mud making you breathe even more deeply… I love to hear the thunder and watch the lightning as if its god’s way of asking me to smile and he is ready with his flash camera to click me…. Lol Thunder screams in my ears to look above and think only sky high…..
After about 15 minutes of getting drenched in pouring rain and living through that every moment, I lifted my waterlogged sandals and quickly get into the front seat of my car playing my favorite song these days “ Tum jo aaye zindagi main baat ban gai” ;-)
The adult and the child in me were happy, smiling, loving every moment on our way home as they got the opportunity and the experience of meeting the life in the rain….
