Our monsoon season started the beginning of this month, a little earlier than anticipated due to a depression in the Bay of Bengal and a cyclone. We have received good rain and it has continue till at least October. Last year the rains started a month late and one year they stopped abruptly end of August. We depend a lot on the south-west monsoon.
Yesterday, we saw the Sun after many days. Today the dark clouds have been playing hide and seek with the Sun 😊. During this season, I do not hang the washed clothes outside. Suddenly it starts raining and instinctively we rush out, to get the clothes before they get wet. I am scared of falling on the wet ground.
My husband loves to dry his clothes when he sees the sun shining, at least for a short time. Both these days I saw him run out many times to rescue his clothes. Suddenly there is a drizzle, it did not rain heavily but it was enough to wet the clothes 😊. Many a time there is a drizzle with the sun shining. Such moments, in our language Kannada, are described as the ‘marriage of monkeys’. I do not know why that is so. We have always used that phrase when we see the Sun and the rain together. I have to find out its origin 😊. The origin of so many phrases that we use in any language is a puzzle. It will be an interesting study.
