Wishing for rain..... Skywatch Friday

Summer's here in no uncertain terms for its just too hot to manage, and the fan is just not enough! I went out to pick Samhith up from school, and the heat was too much to bear... Some people wore sunglasses and sleeveless kurtis, but perspired in the heat... some waited in the comfort of their AC cars,blocking the road and being a nuisance to others..... the kids came out from the cool comfort of the classroom to the glaring midday heat.... happy that the exams were over, but the heat getting to them, tiring them out within minutes......

Faced with such heat, we wished for rain.... hoping for an early and a good monsoon... we are already facing a water shortage this year... and if this heat continues, things can only get worse. In such a scenario, it is difficult to be cheerful and optimistic, so I tried to improve my mood by looking at some of my pics from the monsoon.... Here are a couple of photos taken at Sringeri in August 2009

The clouds make me wish they were right here, right now.... Wonder when I will see them again......

  4. @Chitra: sounds nice.... here its humid, so the nights are no better.. in spite of all the mountains nearby...... unfortunately, summer rains only worsen the problem... for one, it only gets even more humid, and as Bhavesh said in his comment, it spoils the mangoes :(.... so we have no choice but to wait for the monsoon.. till then its horrible

    @Bhavesh: absolutely!!! these summers are bearable only for the mangoes we get after.....
