RAIN THAT REFLECTS ME

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Free Association.”


Today’s Prompt:

Write down the first words that comes to mind when we say . . .

. . . home.

. . . soil.

. . . rain.

Use those words in the title of your post.


Love = Home

Mud  = Soil

Me = Rain


I need not explain any of these.. All speak for themselves.

I am going to elaborate just a bit. All these words put together today remind me of my motherland.. India..  Home.. Soil.. Rain.. Today we celebrate our 66th Republic Day. As a fellow blogger posted on her blog NAMASTE . On this occassion there is a parade organised at Rajghat to potray the diversity in which India survives and believes. There happened to be a slight drizzle this morning just as the program began. But the event went on as organised and there was not as much a frown on the crowd gathered there.. sure umbrellas and raincoats made their appearences but the overall spirit remained cheerful.

Rain and delight.. Hmm.. A lot of people love rains.. but my association with it runs a bit stronger.. My name.. Varsh-a means rain in hindi.. So rain and myself are inseparable. 🙂 And the smell of wet mud.. everytime it rains in my view cannot be replaced by the fragnance of the most expensive perfumes ! Some people think its crazy.. But i love it ! Everytime it rains it makes me want to run out of the closed enclosures into the open and dance in the rain. And i personally think there is a lot to learn from rain..

Here are a few snapshots from the republic day parade today.

.Prime Minister Narendra Modi, President Barak Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama

                      The state tableau from West Bengal.

How come i am back so soon?.. I found the prompt small and easy.. and was also in a spirited mood.. so posted today.. Happy republic day !

      • Next time I will be say correctly. I am starting to work on it right now. There is 365 days for this:) And I am full of surprises extra-terrestrial as much as the mankind;)

  2. Im so jealous I feel like I missed a great parade and you have great pictures. I don’t have the connection with the rain that you have, but believe me life lives in every drop and I only hope to feel embrace and dance in the rain as well.
