Human Nature (Slice of Life)

Human Nature (Slice of Life)


Our monsoon season started in the first week of this month. We had been waiting eagerly for the rains. The weather had become very hot and there was rationing of water. The rains started and the weather became cooler. Human nature is very strange. We yearn for something and when we get it we change our way of thinking. It rained almost continuously for days and we were thinking will it never stop. We were even thinking the clouds must be tired. Then, for two days there was no rain. Everyone was talking about it and were worried about what would happen if it did not rain. Today it rained heavily, there was such a feeling of relief. Human nature is strange indeed and many a time there is no satisfying us.

  1. The plural, rains, tells so much. Here, (outside of Manhattan) we say, It rained yesterday–but we don’t use the plural. Throughout my life, rain has been neither a worry or a blessing. Now, with climate change and storms gaining ferocity, rain and storms in general take on new life. Your post has given me much to think about. Thank you.

  2. Lovely rain last night cleared out our humidity and gave us a clear blue day. We don’t have a rainy season, though we do have a lot of snow in the winter. So I guess you could say we have a snow season!
