Rain, Shine, Snow, Wind and the Common Man

Nature has to appear in different forms and colors, keeping the people in different parts in good humor or in not-so-happy moods in other parts! The mood of the people in different parts of the world depends on how hot the sun in during summer or how dark and windy the area is during winter cum rainy days. Frankly speaking, worst days are when the wind is in full form in company with mild rains or snows which penetrate your warm cloths on which we have to invest lots of money! Anyway, mid-summer may not be very pleasant but those who are interested in sports, especially cricket, nothing on earth can spoil their mood!
Whether you like it or not, we need all sorts of weather in order to overcome shortage of water or electricity.
Hats off to all kinds of weather!

Progress on all fronts

The present happenings in a country soon becomes the history of that country. In certain countries the recent history may have striking similarities with the past but very often it is just a part and parcel of ‘old habits die hard.’
In many cases, especially in democratic countries, it is invariably on again and off again when it comes to new rules and regulations. As far as India is concerned, several years after independence all developments have something to do with the policies of political parties which have very little to do with the progress of the nation as a whole. What’s funny about the elections in general is that most of the capable leaders are interested only in regional matters and it badly affects the progress of the nation in general thereby making the country lag behind some super power which have inspired youngsters.
Regionalism is OK to some extent but the nation needs progress on all fronts.

Dancing to the tune of nature

A couple of months ago, it used to be bright and sunny. The sun took its own time to say, “Bye, bye guys,” rather reluctantly, but you had to wait till 9:30pm to see the glorious sunset!
Anyway, slowly but steadily, the weather was neither too hot nor too cold and one was tempted to go for the usual evening walk, enjoying the gentle breeze and affordable sunny days. Occasionally one was tempted to go through the weather forecast to know what’s in store for us on each and every day. Your friends and relatives gave you a hint on what’s in store on a particular day.
What prompted me to write these lines was the unexpected “snow fall”, which I witnessed after a post lunch cat nap. My goodness! We are still in the grip of the “Snow rain” accompanied by massive dry leaves!
Let us hope for the best.
