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.

I am a person who believes there is not enough darkness in the world to extinguish the light of a small candle.
We live in a small place in South India. I love reading, blogging, stitching, traveling, photography, listening to people and many other things which make life so very nice and interesting. Blogging is a fun experience, it has brought me into contact with people in different parts of the world and it is good to read about their everyday life. In spite of the differences there is a sameness which is fascinating.
I have learnt and am learning something everyday. I have learnt to write haikus. I enjoy combining the thought and the number of syllables. I have always read books and I was happy to write short fiction. I had thought I would not be able to do so. Stream of Consciousness and photo challenges are fun too.
Yes, there is so much in life that is sad and that hurts us. Many a time I wonder why life is so unfair to so many. We all have problems in life but the problems of many seems unbearable. This makes me feel so helpless. It is not possible to help everyone but we can do our bit, we can do something to help some in whatever way we can. I am doing something in my own way. Twice a week I go to a home for the mentally challenged . This has enriched my life.
There have been many challenges in life and we have faced them with a positive approach. Our grandson and granddaughter have made life so much more richer.

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.


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!
