This is what inspires me-
- To write
- To emote
- To put that smile back on my face
I have not been keeping well since last Tuesday. Only last night, I had to pop half a tablet of Flexon to tame the raging temperature. I am yet to assess what had caused this illness to take a hit on me. My maid had done some of her chanting to ward off that evil eye. It did seem to work yet again. I am not superstitious but do believe in occult and negative energies. May be meeting those new bunch of losers had set it on.
Like it had 10 days back, the weather had become awfully warm. There’s hardly any spring here. It’s straight summers after the winters- almost abruptly! The transition misses. So while I wasn’t really liking the sudden snapping of the weatherly temperature outside the house; I noticed that it had been keeping equally cloudy since the last 3 days. Keeping in mind how it rained only a few days back, I had almost focussed to bring some more down on this part of the earth!
3 days of prayers, reminding dear Nature how the science works (water cycle); it had decided to rain. It resulted in a scary storm of half hour with slanted rain and no electricity- remember, this is India? The wind was so strong that it felt as if would break the aluminium glass doors to make its way. I was both awestruck at the nature’s display of extreme weather changes as well as fascinated with it. The last time it rained a few days back was in the middle of night. Although my coughs had woken me up, I could only hear the pitter patter and not see much!
Anytime it’s about to rain, I break into coughs- no matter how well covered I may be. This evening, I could even smell that sweet scent in the air. So what if it rained only after 2 hours of my sniffing of it! As of now, it feels good. It’s become slightly colder than how it was.
Morning tomorrow; it’s going to be foggy again..
