The grass and leaves on the plants and trees which looked withered in the heat of the summer shone with new life. The wet houses looked as if freshly painted. A few birds sat on the electricity and telephone wires chirruping and preening their feathers. In whole, nature had adorned itself with fresh beauty.
Rains can be troublesome too! I realised this when I saw all the roads, streets and lanes covered with mud. Water collected in holes and small pools of water appeared everywhere. I did not stop anywhere. On reaching my friend’s house I found him hanging out on the roof.
He shouted happily when he saw me. I joined him and we both laughed at each other’s condition. After some time his mother called us inside and served some delicious snacks. We did not stay indoors for long. We were back on the roof playing and splashing the rain water.
The rain stopped as soon as it had come. I longed to get back home and change my clothes. I made my friend good bye and rushed for home.
