Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain


A few days ago... it rained...... it was beautiful... Joy loves the rain...and this time I took him out to the balcony and stretched his little arms out so that he could feel the raindrops falling on his tiny palms....

He was amazed when the first droplet splashed on tiny hand.....I carried him from balcony to balcony... I have four.. and we reached out for the rain... we stuck out our faces and felt the cold rainwater splash off our faces.... Joy had the expression he has when his Baba holds him under the shower...he was thrilled...then he tried to lick the rainwater off his hand.... I let him.... knowing that that water wouldn't be very clean..... it came off the terrace ledge afterall... but what the hell....!

We got wet.... then after we dried ourselves nicely.... Joy and I sat in his room with the balcony door wide open... and saw the rain go pitter -patter in front of us...the trees were all green..there was a nice breeze.....my maid brought me a cup of hot tea and Joy his sweet lime juice to sip on... and followed it with a plate of pakoras....and some marie biscuits for Joy....I sat with him in my lap...and sang a few "rain" songs....in English and Hindi.... the maid also got inspired and joined in with a few "monsoon" songs in Bengali... Joy just sat and listened....and smiled...and clicked his tongue...( he's learnt how to do that..some how...)

We sat like that for almost an hour... me sitting on the bean bag just looking out .....humming a few songs and Joy playing with his new toy....every now and then crawling out on to the balcony ..getting his hands wet and crawling back with a naughty look on his face....I loved it ....

Both of us missed the husband.... that kind of weather is his favourite.... I looked out and thought of him sitting inside an office working .. sometimes he doesn't even realise that it had rained... poor guy....

We missed you sweetie.... but there will be more like that one.........

The title of your post brought back some old memories for me! After all it used be one of my favourite songs!!

Now who has the time to decide which/what is your favourite...*sigh*

And even I missed that beautiful rain time sitting in office! Bwaaaaaaaaah! I love it too! I love getting wet in the rain! And that is why I let Betu get wet too when it rains on holidays.

P.S. I live in South Delhi, Near escorts heart institute.
