Rainy post

Finally it started pouring and about time too. The mercury was not only on the rise but humidity plummeting as well. It was really proving to be fatal. And i can just talk about myself. it really used to be harrowing to step out of home with the sun scathing my toes and whichever part my umbrella couldn’t shield. not being the dainty types who does not step out without an umbrella, still i had to resort to one as a temporary respite to the scorching sun.

it had started to rain from 5am this morning. And it has been raining since. its almost a privilege to sleep in with such a beautiful weather. its dark and extremely rainy. from the looks of it, it is going to pour cats and dogs. and this is what makes this holiday even more special. Yesterday the UPA government had issued new steep fuel price hike all over the country due to inflation. And all the left parties are calling a bandh today to protest and hordes of other parties follow suit tomorrow. so for most it is a week long holiday based in an extremely bad incident. not being an economist and all, i don’t really understand how the economy of the State works but then if the middle and the lower class have to suffer thus then the government which claims to be "by the people and for the people" is not government at all. And with the looks of it, what with the fuel price hike, and the hike in air travel and inflation threatening to assume a double figure mark im sure that the UPA government is on its way out. while they plan out strategies to score the home run millions are wondering how on earth things will work out as not all in the private sector gets even half of what the government sector does. if these thoughts does not dampen my spirits i dont know what else does.

College reopens in exact 1 month and i cant say im looking forward to it. Last year at this time, i have having the time of my life and now its the same me who instead of cribbing about the long holidays, is enjoying every bit of doing nothing at home. I know however that next semesters is going to be really tough with four honors papers and the study getting more analytical and less text based so that would only mean more hard work than usual. And since its just 2 more semesters, it can be my only few opportunities to elevate m grades to a notch higher. The competition is not with who gets more marks and how, but it is in bettering my score.

enough of depressing thoughts and now all i wanna do is to run upstairs and get soaked to the skin and this is exactly what i am going to do.untill next time!cheerio!
