My Rendezvous with rain

It was Monday the first day of the week. As always I had Monday blues. Everything seemed to be going in the right way, until………….. it was about 5.30  in the evening. I was listening to the boring lectures waiting to get out. I never knew that what was a simple drizzle would become an incessant rain. I thought it was just another gimmick played by the rain and never knew there was a conspiracy going on to stalk me. I walked from my college to the railway station the drizzle followed me as soon as I entered the train it stopped. I started riding my Black Panther, drops of rain were falling on me. Then came my rendezvous with rain.

Me: Do u always plan to piss me off.

Rain: yes, of course.

Me:  Please stop dripping for a while 'chal chal'. I will get in and u do your job. deal ?

Rain: chalak chalak chal chal chal(Then what is the reason I am here for, my answer is no.)

Me: Look I am not in a mood to dance a solo song in rain; I am super bad at it. I am not ready to make a fool of myself.

Rain: cha cha cha......llllll(sudden fast drippings that’s how rain laughs)

Me : Does my black panther sound like Amritavarshini ( the raaga which brings rain), i know it makes sounds never knew it is a raaga.

Rain: Chal chal.......chal( that means sucker in rain language)   

Me: OMG no not traffic. I must take short cut.Boy O boy I have smelled marinated food but I have never smelt a street urinated this much. thanks to you chal chal ( rain)

Rain: starting to rain heavily ( that means saavuda naye which is loosely translated as suffer my wrath doggy boy)

Me: I am totally drenched damn you Chal chal

Then I had to travel past our street road which is pretty narrow only a bus could get through. The two-way road which looked like a one-way road turned into a halfway road. Thanks to who else but the Chennai corporation, who gorged a wonder, called “not so grand canyon” a miniature of the real one which is in the USA. That now turned into the everglades (swamp in,  Florida, USA), the mud was now a slush courtesy rain. after all these obstacles i reached home.

Me: Finally made it

Rain: busssssss ( thats is how it stops and says duty over)

Me: I will get you for this.

I saw the clouds it looked very bleak that it would rain for sometime. I changed my clothes and challenged it to drench. I switched to mankey mode. No i did not say any fancy words to change mode or costume, forget it. So i went to the nearby food stall to eat.

Me: drench me if you can

Rain: grrrrrrr i will 

Me: oh i am sorry you are running out of clouds aren't you?

Me: wow the samosa and kachori are great.

Rain: why you!!!!!

Me: let me have a slow walk see if you can get me ( i was standing at the gate and mocking it )

Rain: the clouds are here i come. bussssssssss !

Me: hahahaha somebody stoppppp me

Me:  bye see you. sorry for the disappointment, guess who had the last laugh. ;)


It was Thursday and i made a wrong decision of attending all 5 hrs of my college. Man i got stuck in college till 7.00 pm. But had a blast with my friends in that atmosphere. 

Me: looks like i am gonna get a parade when i reach home, how the hell am i going to buy pooja stuff for tomorrow's pooja.

Rain: heavy rain ( it means it is angry with for what i did the other day )

it was no surprise everyone had bought the stuff i returned empty handed to my home. But got full with kind of scoldings from my mom " you are a waste cant you do even this right".
I had a trick up my sleeve i said " its raining outside how can i?" with a very sad face. Escape. 


I played my cards close to the chest, i had a secret weapon to counter it.

dhan te nan te na na nan.......................

Me: Unveil the umbrella ray, you are toast

Rain: Oh no spare me. nooooooooo !!!!!!!

Me: hahahaha. 

dhan te nan te na na nan.......................

That day it didn't even pretend to rain till i reached my place. This secret weapon was originally used by my dad. Since he travels by car nowadays, i am the new torch bearer to torment rain now and then. How dare it messes with me. Just for the sake of Chennai i might consider leavin my umbrella ray. 

27 blesses 'n' curses:

Don't curse the rain Venky and Ms.Elithraniel Arawion .... we need rains for sure !!!!!!!!

Srini said...

this is beautifully written... I liked the swears, the smattering of humour, the onamatapoeic expressions, the musical connection and everything. At places the post was cute, at others innocently comical - but overall pretty nicely done :-) :-) :-)

Keep up the good work!

So, You totally played with rain. You are now a rain-maniac. You should have brought mankey in these situations should i say! If mankey had cum he would have totally whitewashed ur game with rain.
