Late night rainy drive

Five years ago I moved bag and baggage to Gurgaon to be with my husband. We returned shortly in a very rainy August which he loathed. Next June we were back to his hometown. The rains in Delhi-NCR are few and far between. It is horribly dry, almost no one knows how to dress for the rains (women wearing whites...blasphemy) and no, they don't own fun umbrellas as they do matching stoles and shawls.

So I will straight come to the point - I missed the rains and surely so! Now that I am back, I love the rainy season every bit. I have come to appreciate the floods, puddles and the wet days. I look forward to the ominous clouds and the gloom. I look forward to being soaked to the bone at Worli sea face. I love it all.

And to honor my love for the rains, I drag my husband for long, late night drives. Here is something I captured :)

Not so mellow yellow!

Imagine a gloomy, gloomy Monday. Unwanted rains, traffic jam and then this! Bye bye Monday blues and hello yellow...

Cats Sleep Anywhere

Cats sleep anywhere, any table, any chair.
Top of piano, window-ledge, in the middle, on the edge.
Open draw, empty shoe, anybody's lap will do.
Fitted in a cardboard box, in the cupboard with your frocks.
Anywhere! They don't care! Cats sleep anywhere.

Eleanor Farjeon (1881 - 1965)


(And in this case, on an empty, upturned fish basket. Indulging in delicious slumber with no cares of the world. Spotted at Macchi Bazar, Chunabhatti East)

Star light, Star bright, Bandra


"Star light. Star Bright.
First star I see tonight.
I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight..."
I am a moth that gets attracted to shining lights!
