saawan...

in the evening, i was feeling utterly bored and watching some lowsy movie on my SONY (this is my computer's name)... slowly, the cold breeze started coming from my balcony and in five minutes the entire scene has changed... first drop, second drop, more drops... and, it's raining... wow! we were longing for it since a month... the smell from soil during the first rain is too good... what a romantic aroma!!! i've started dancing and humming "hu la lla la laa lla laa llaa lley"...

these summer showers have brought with them some old sweet memories... last year, we were staying in those old (old is a very small adjective, i should say ancient) hostel rooms... and bangalore weather is too good and there used to be rain everyday... our rooms are in soo pathetic condition that, there are cracks in the walls and window glasses are broken... due to that cold breeze during nights, by the time we get up in the morning, my nose is filled/blocked with loads of phlegm, my voice changed to some vibrating south indian cinema hero, and head spinning like a top!!! thankfully, we are comfortably alloted rooms in new hostels (without cracks in walls and unbroken windows)... but still, those days were so sweet... of course, only to recollect but not to reexperience!!!

though the spring season is almost ended, most of the trees are still blooming with their colorful flowers... particularly, gulmohar are too good to see these days! thanks to ecological sciences department who are giving lot of scientific information about these flora... haaaaaaaa... i love this place!!! hope this cool weather remains till we leave iisc!!!
