Finally it Rained!!



Phew! finally it rained.... after a period of 8 days of continuous heat wave.. last evening finally the Norwesters descended... it was a relief.. with the storm blowing away the curtains.. the windows slamming...the cool breeze instilling a fresh new breath to life... finally the Kolkattans yesterday heaved a sigh of relief! 

if last night was one of the coolest and most pleasant nights of this summer season...today was simply spectacular...i woke up to a distinct chill making it impossible to continue sleeping... the sun didn't wake me up rudely this time.. and it was sheer bliss to snuggle in within sheets cuddling up to my niece...sigh! i couldn't thank god enough for this day.. for a day like this.. with clouds mystifying the sky...the sun nowhere in sight and the temperatures going down several notches...having to go to college or to study on a day like this is a crime...

It didn't take long for the threats of the cloud to turn to a reality...it poured cats and dogs.. relentlessly...and we all got a breather...with the heat wave forgotten for the moment.. its a perfect time to go for walks in the rain kissed streets..with hand in hand with that special one..to drop in at the local tea-walla...or the CCD and enjoying a hot cuppa... or sitting in the car with that special someone and watching the rains stain the glass... its just splendid! sigh!  

P.S; yeah yea its yet another rain post... but i do get to gloat 'i told you so' now didn't i?? :D!!

P.P.S: BTW guess what?? my Tamil exam finished.. nothing spectacular to talk about...but then i know i will pass. now that's what i call relief!! :D  so that's just 3 more exams to go... :)

I love rain. Although we don't reach that high of heat temps that you all do. I still die when it comes to HEAT! I will make sure I stay in the hotel when I am there!

Glad your Exams went good! and hold on to your seat The other 3 will go great also!

time for a hot cuppa with fried onion dumplings.

aar lunch/dinner'er jonye pati khichudi, sathe begun bhaja, beguni, aloo bhaja, omellete aar papad!! aha... ekebare rainy day meal!! :P

btw, it barely rains in London the way it does in Kolkata, so the above mentioned menu is definitely not an option... except the tea!! Over here, its irritating. Kemon jeno shorbokhon ghyan ghyan kora brishti... manush hole thatiye thappod mere bhagatam... aar betachhele hole to prohareno dhononjoy!! sharadin pit pit kore hote thake, bhalo lage naki??
