The monsoon has arrived,

My city of joy looks lovely!

It always does,

When the rain dances on its heart.


Schools no longer have rainy days,

But there was a time when

Rainy days were better than Sundays.

When you’d go to school,

Only to be shooed away by the guard

Saying, “go home you fool!”


On the way back sometimes,

The car would get stuck in the rains.

And a hand-pulled rickshaw,

Would surely come to rescue.


By the time I reached home,

I would be soaked to the skin,

And ravenously hungry.


Somehow my grandmother would know,

And would be ready with

Her signature pickled tomatoes!


Will share that recipe later,

Now go away and let me

Indulge in nostalgia.
