First Wash….

Thunders, showers and winds…y’day night was the first wash for the neighborhood. The temperatures mellowed down nicely and I observed while in the morning walk, trees cleaned of dust and lot of ‘subject matter’ scattered all over the roads…


It’s a pleasant weather now! The city’s ‘thermostat’ started working, I must say!!

    I heard the thunder, lightning et all !Whilst so much excitement was going on outside , I was listening to a fellow team mate drone about some inane receiver and its even more vacuous functionality .Sigh , the travails of a boring s/w job!
    Anyways , I love the pic that you’ve posted , a typical Blore look , wind blown and cool :)

    Love the pic, so Bangalore! We didn’t get too much rain, just some. But when I was out and about this morning, everything looked great and smelt earthy and wonderful too.

    Hi Rajesh,
    The rains reached Indiranagar yesterday finally, it seems. It was absolutely great to get a preview of what’s in store for Bangaloreans’ later in the year. I ventured out and got a ‘drenching’ down! It was absolutely delightful, believe me and I can’t wait for more rains in the city.

    Saaya was right. When rain comes, BESCOM will switch off power.

    Yesterday I had complained that it didn’t rain in my area… Well, last night it poured on me! Got totally drenched… I had a mixed reaction. I was irritated by the fact that it rained before I got home but I was really happy that the rains had finally come. It feels like Bangalore again! :-)

    How nice looks the greenery when its raining, life becomes colorful and we start realising the importance of life, similar is the thinking of animals also, although we humans don;t undertand their language, and KILL them and eat them, when god has given such good source of fruits and vegetables, cereals, rice and wheat to eat.
    Why does some one do that, and how can one eat it, it is radiculos to note that in this nice weather also people do so, atleast from this nice weather and rainfall we should take an oath not to consume any kind of Non-Veg, including EGG, not to wear leather goods, silk sarees and the best we can do to preserve them.
    So all the readers have already taken the Oath, and now lets try to follow it in our real life from now on and foreever, it will give inspirations and good thoughts in our mind, and we can build this nation into a developed country, free of Non-Vegeterinism.

    @Vegiterians: You never give up, do you? You’ve been propagating vegetarianism under 3 pseudo names already; ‘buycott_it’, ‘Good’ and now ‘Vegiterians’. I’m sorry to say but this forum ain’t the right place for that. I respect the fact that you’re a vegetarian but don’t force your ideologies on someone else.

    Trust me, the best way to get people to think like you is to be quiet ;-). Imagine if the ‘non-veg’ people keep shoving raw meat in front of you. I am quite sure that you will freak!! So live and let live. If you are a Sanatana Dharma follower(quick!! Look it up :))then that is the main tenet to follow.
