Rainy Days in Delhi

It poured continuously for over a day in the capital, bringing everything to a standstill. Blame it on the upcoming commonwealth games. Newspapers are overflowing with pictures of dug up Delhi and stories on how the new stadiums are being washed away with the rains. Conversations abound on how many crores (tens of millions) of rupees have been handed over to the middlemen (and the top men as well) for digging up perfectly good roads and pavements and replacing them on whim with new materials (leaving gaping holes all round). What a mindless waste.

But, sheltered as we were at home, the rains brought a refreshing coolness and clearness after the summer haze - washing down the trees and the ground and allowing us to eat the fried and spicy food that summer does not permit! I enjoyed every bit of the rainy spell.  And it looks like there's another one round the corner.
