How do you feel when it rains? Do you feel happy or sad? Does it remind you of the problems in your day to day life? Do the rains teach you something … do let me know!
The met department had sent out a warning, that it would rain. However, the hidden message was the red alert which meant that the rains would lead to floods and disaster. And yes there were floods in most parts of Maharashtra, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Goa and Karnataka.
While we were given the red alert signal well in advance, we were still taken back by the floods that occurred in the first week of August. Though a day late, Pune was mostly flooded with constant rain for almost two weeks. It rained so much that the water from major dams had to be released, which further flooded the low lying areas. The schools also gave a week’s holiday as a precautionary measure.
Though ‘when it rains’, it is literally a treat for everyone, with green pastures and colourful trees. There are different shades of green – every possible variant you can imagine. The past few rainy days taught me that we had everything like a phone – but no connection, ATM cards but no access to the machines, cars but still prisoned in our house. Similarly, even in life, we have days when there are times of pain, joy, loss and trouble. Whether we are going through a relationship struggle or a financial concern or an emotional outburst, life also takes us through turbulent moments.
To help bring peace and calm to the struggles we often face, here are some great rainy day quotes to help us remember that there is sunshine after every rain…
