Why I Love the Monsoon

 Here in India, we have a thriving Monsoon season for four lovely months of the year! And the dark rainy clouds do a nice job of covering up a hot blazing peak-summer sun! What bliss!

I experienced this when I was on a flight recently...As the plane took off from what was a lovely dark day, and climbed higher in the sky...higher, through the clouds...and Bam! There the blinding Sun was! I had to shut my eyes for a second to get used to the light! Thank God for the clouds:)

I got a bit poetic about it too:D

"It feels like morning all day..
without a clock you'd be lost!
no hint of time till the cloudy night makes its way..
Ahh, I love the monsoon!"

So here's why:

Fresh Fruits, Fresh everything!

I don't have to water the plants in my window!

Monsoon Sales at all the shops..Ooooooh:D How cool is this design on this tee-shirt?

Storms lashing in the trees and the wind whistling in my window...exciting:D

New black rainy shoes that I can slip into, wherever I go, without thinking!

Neon umbrellas everywhere..

 My very-outdoorsy cat stays at home all the time because she hates water!

 Everywhere  I look-Greeeeeeeen!

I've been doing a lot of DIY projects lately...since I am indoors most of the time! Gotta take pictures and show them to you asap:) Stay tuned..

I'd love to experience the monsoon properly. I've just been in India during bad storms leading up to it, it must be so exciting...not for the kitties, though!
Is the electricity shortage not affecting you in Mumbai? x

Well Shubhi, you forgot to include hot tea and fritters that we Indians are addicted to in Monsoons...

I love the rains too, and all things tat come with them, except the dirty puddles, broken roads and flus, of course.
