Today I can forget my Yesterdays post. So do you. Just when I was troubled by heat, Shower of rain cooled the things. I am much relieved from the heat. At least I’ll be able to concentrate more on the work. Funny thing is that, there is very less work for me when it rains. That may not be the case here on this job.
Smell of soil in the air is an indication of thirsty Earth getting relief from the baking heat of Sun. Hot air is replaced by cold breeze and this is the perfect time for a tea or coffee with “Pakodas”. Luckily, I had both today. The lethal combination of above will be recalled many more times later this monsoon. I am always waiting for such moments.
Till that time comes…
Day by day the mercury is rising. It’s not the thermometer immersed in hot water. It is the one that’s hung in the office. This is the end of May and there is not a single shower of rain. Unlike last years rain in February, it looks like a drought period. What is ahead is still unknown and unpredictable to anyone. Our weather department makes some guesses which always turn out to be guesses only.
Summer is the season of mangoes. I love mangoes. This year there is a drought of mangoes also. Mangoes do relieve me from heat to some extent. This is till I go for work on site where the sun is over me and sipping every drop of water inside me. The rest of the water goes out. You know what I mean by “goes out”.
Two times bath is compulsory this season and I feel like taking more. At some point everyday I feel like sleeping in water for the whole day. I wished I could change my job every season and according to season. A job near beach would be great at this point. Dip into the sea every now and then, would save me from heat. Not to mention the “Eye Candy” on the beach. That is another reliever.
The biggest problem for me in summers is my sleep. I find it very difficult to sleep unless I am very much tired from job. It would still take some time to get into sleep. Fan on the ceiling seems to be fanning hot air instead of cool, sleep friendly air. When will I get a room with working AC mounted? My body hates clothes during this season. What to do?? I am not living in stone age, else I would have dropped all. If I do it now, I’ll be sent to mental hospital or in the jail where there is no sign of fan.
Striving through all these, I manage to enjoy my weekends which add to relief. I am wishing for the rains to come soon. Very soon…
A little bird was flying south for the Winter.It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground into a large field. While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him. As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he was. The dung was actually thawing him out! He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy. A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate. Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him.

Another bull shit story. It’s a female counterpart here. The fact still holds true. Success through bull shit will not last long.
It rained today. Unlike the showers in the Feb-March, this looks to be pre monsoon showers. It was really getting hot here. I was dying due to heat. It was really difficult to get out and feel the sun. But this shower for added a cooling sensation. It rained for about half an hour and now it has stopped. But it certainly brought the temperature down.
This is normal period or time for monsoon showers. They usually come during this time only. I hope these are pre monsoon showers. Somehow I have a strange fear that rains will behave very unexpectedly this year. It did same last year. Rains were unexpected last year. They used to disappear for some days and all collective rain quota for those days used to shower on one day. This created flood situations.
I’ll have to rush to my uncles farm for some forest fruits of summer. Else when rain starts those fruits disappear. I’ve planned to go on Saturday. Lets hope rains don’t interrupt and I’ve some fun there.
