It´s wondrous how the weather changes outside and inside you.
Kerala is in floods and God save them. But its heartening to see how people are not waiting for divine intervention and helping the state in the best way they can afford to. In fact, Monsoon has gripped the whole of South India. Hyderabad is no exception but the situation is under control here.
As for me, I love the monsoons for the cheap thrills that it brings – roasted corn on the cob, boiled peanuts, warm chaats and pakodas, magical masala and ginger chai, steaming filter coffee mornings. Even the banal daily experience of reading a book and listening to music suddenly feels ultra-luxurious against the pitter-patter sounds of drizzling raindrops. The only downside of Monsoons for me is that I am an asthmatic and I have to be extra careful during this season.God grant me immunity!
Otherwise, I feel upbeat. I am in a good place and space. Cozy and comfortable, I would say! I am doing things that I love. Some that I fear as well.
And what do you know! I feel charged and ready to grab by the bull by its horns. Much like Maria from ´The Sound of Music´ in this lovely song!
Have a wonderful week, folks!
