Just as the Earth welcomes the first rain with open arms, so do us.. in the hope that rain will wash away all our worries.
A powder of blue was sprinkled on the sky where cottony puffs of clouds danced
To the errant breeze that could not decide whether to blow hard or be mellow.
The sun had dimmed his fire today; he seemed content to let the children play.
The naughty breeze blew clouds of dandelions and they floated like Misty bubbles.
The meadow with its verdant hues of Jade was tranquil in the laziness of the day.
It laid out its wares of daisies, bluebells, peonies and petunias almost wistfully.
I sank into the warmth that the Lea offered. It was like a mother’s loving embrace.
I let myself be one with the Glade and inhaled the heady aroma of the petrichor.
Then stray winds picked up and blew from all across, undecided in their direction.
Their gentle wanton gait seemed almost languid until they picked up their pace
And blew harder across the meadow raising up, a maelstrom of leaves & petals.
I sat up and looked to the skies for it seemed like rain was imminent soon, again.
On my upturned face I felt the first drop if moisture, like a pearl it rolled down.
But it was not a stray drop for soon enough I felt the first sprinkle of misty water.
The fine mist gradually turned into a steady drizzle and wet my eager face.
I raised my arms, grinned gleefully and welcomed the first rains of the season.

Women are NOT safe in India, and men have NO clue how we plan every time we go out of our safe spaces. This is no country for women.
Trigger warning: This speaks of sexual assault, rape culture, and gangrape, and may be triggering for survivors.
Yet another horrific sexual assault has been committed against a woman in India. As always, men are advising women on how they should take adequate precautions. Adequate precautions? Do men have any idea what women go through everyday?
Let’s ask a couple of questions to understand how women and men navigate the world differently, shall we?
The theme for IWD 2024 is 'Invest in Women: Accelerate Progress'. Are you doing your part in this big picture?
I believe that any change to really make a difference in the daily lives of all of us, each one has to do their bit. Of course, the big picture – policy changes, laws, and their implementation at a higher level is crucial. But unless we each do what we can, no change will be really effective and lasting.
It’s Women’s History Month, and in a week’s time, we have International Women’s Day 2024 – IWD 2024. The theme this year, according to the UN is ‘Invest in Women: Accelerate Progress’.
While this has been interpreted mostly in terms of financial investment in women at work, entrepreneurship, etc., I would like to take a more holistic view of it.
