The first rains of this year. Also the first of many new conversations with an old friend. Peppered with old memories but actually I should say….sweetened by them rather than embittered. I am going to meet this monsoon with joy for a change.
The deceptively passionate summers have come and gone. They left me parched, dry and colourless and stripped of everything that made me joyful and alive and me. Monsoon was the season I was born in after all. And I am a water person. Enough burnt, it is time to water my soul and make my life green and beautiful again.
I took this photograph last year in the week leading to Ganesh Chaturti. Soon, very soon….the rains will be here, the festivities will began and there will be even more flowers!
