Flash Monsoon Showers Today
Today morning, Chennai again started to recieve Flash Showers. The Met Department has reported this as an effect of a small low pressure trough in Bay of Bengal, which is relatively weak as of now.
However, for casual users for us, today also being a holiday on account of Ramzan, it would be a real fun and frolic to watch the showers.
Rains are always most welcome in any part of the world. No wonder all poets have praised it on all times. Just a fond recollection:
- Varappuyara Neer Uyarum,
Neer Uyara Nel Uyarum,
Nel Uyara Kudi Uyarum,
Kudi Uyara Kon Uyarvaan
- A Tamil Rhyme in the Primary School which praises rain in a very easy words for the tiny tots. A couple of lines like
'Tavalai kooda Padumae; Tanneerila Adumae'
'Teruvellam Vellamae; Tinnaiyorum Sellumae'
Meaning: Toads and Frogs celebrate rain and dance happily in the waters. All streets and roads are flooded and the water is gushing to the main river through the small lanes.
- I could also remember a kind of lyrics in, I think, En Swasa Katre which was released during the period, we were in the 7th semester of our college. I could'nt remember the exact song but would go like 'Avoid black umbrella to rain since it resembled like protesting it'. :)
In short, poets from old days to now, all treat Rain as a most welcome guest. Letz join hands with them to welcome it. It is the Showers of Blessings from the Lord.
