Barish kai Islamabadi Side Effects

A few days back someone on the Lahore MB did a photo-post with the same title, and I am reusing it here. Rain does have it’s wonderful side effects. Slumber starts to sink in. The head gets heavy. One feels like having a cup of tea, and what could complement it better than a ‘qeemay ka samosa’ freshly fried and some ‘hari chutni’. Or some pakoras with lemon squeezed over them. Sipping away life sitting under a porch with no worries of life as the sky puts on a show of lightening and thunder. Even God is feeling festive and joyous. Droplets of rain from the heavens land on the ground like two age old friends greeting each other after a long, long time. In moments like these, one just wants to leave what he’s doing and stand in the window for a while and let the view sink in. The mountains looks amazingly fresh, the soil drenched in water has a wild aroma that is unmatched… The rain made the things in the window a wee bit more clearer.

Ladies and gentemen, welcome ‘the monsoon rains!
