Aai ( I call my grandmother Aai) Please don`t send me to school today`s i wanna make paper boat and sail them in the puddles outside. this rain is so nice" I pleaded my grandmother to avoid me sending me to school. It was raining heavily since morning and I was in 2nd Std. All i wanted that day was to make paper boats and get drenched in rain. I continued convincing my grandma when at last she finally have in and allowed me to stay back. I was overjoyed i quickly took all old newspapers and made paper boats then went out to sail them in water accumulated in the compound. I played so much in rain. I even used to love shopping for the Monsoon. New rainy shoes and the bright coloured umbrellas and raincoats. Everything associated with it was so cute back then. But sadly i don see any kid enjoying all these things anymore. They don't like playing in the puddles or going out in the rain. They rather enjoy sitting back home playing on computers or watching television i am not saying that kids should always keep playing but at least don't spoil the essence of the season. Imagine the first shower and that sweet smell of earth sudden coolness after the may heat. And when you go out in a balcony with a cup of coffee in hand enjoy the rains and the you greenery on earth and cute kids playing .. That would be picture perfect.
