Monsoons are here and here to stay. It is widely accepted as a season of great pictures, romantic long drives, poetic inspiration and galli (street) football matches.
But as it’s said, excess of everything is bad! So here we are discussing the hardships faced in monsoons. Basically about, the damaged phone cameras after great pictures, running down of your car in the supposed rainy romantic long drive, melancholic mood of poets because everything appears to be dull after some time and dirty stinky clothes of galli football stars.
Here is a list of tribulations we face at the times of heavy monsoons:
Clothes won’t dry
There will always be dearth of clothes to wear, because either they are laced with mud or they are wet or they have a pungent smell. Also your senses give up when you try to figure out are your clothes wet or simply cold!
Remember when you were little and you loved jumping in every puddle you could find? Now you’ve grown up and you cautiously avoid every pot hole in your way. Still you always have wet feet and its annoying!
The umbrella suffering
You just cannot leave home without this inseparable extension of yours. Adding to the misery your umbrella may change its shape in winds, get misplaced like it has feet of its own or decide to not open at all when you need it the most.
Monsoons remind you of the biodiversity concept you learnt in your 8th class biology book because you’ll spot many creatures in different shapes and sizes. Some beautiful, some weird and MANY outrageously scary!
Had a great fall?
You are always on the verge to slip. The ordeal is worse for the one wearing glasses. The world appears to be hazy and blurry. You multitask between managing your umbrella, wiping your foggy spectacles and avoiding a fall.
What do I feel?
By nature man is fool, when it’s hot he wants it cool, when its cool he wants it hot, always wanting what is not. WRONG! It’s not the man it’s the weather! You can’t decide to wear or not to wear your warm hoody.
Monsoons begin with the sweet smell of petrichor (smell of wet land) and gradually progresses to the awful odor of damp clothes and shoes.
Does not matter how hard you try you are ALWAYS late because of water clogged roads, jammed car engines and slowed down walking speed.
Your mood oscillates like your playlists oscillate between Bollywood romantic numbers to sad songs of longing.
What to eat?
You have this continuous urge of eating something delicious and warm and at the same time you don’t want to face the hassle of going out in the rain. The struggle is real!
