When the skyline, melding with shoreless shimmering sea, changes colors from different hues of crimson to blue to grey, loses its golden sheen, and starts to look less like molten metal, and more like the sleek side of a cool aluminum sheet, it's the genesis of much publicized Mumbai monsoons.
Mumbai is known all over the world for its incessant torrential rains. The monsoons have always been special for every Mumbaikar, and no matter how much the BMC (Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation) tries to make us hate the rains with the potholes, mismanaged traffic and water logging, one can’t help love the monsoon magic. Those endless walks on Marine Drive, Carter Road and Worli Sea Face suddenly seem to have a different appeal all together. The wind blows through your hair and the waves kiss your cheeks during high tide and splash onto the roads. The Bandra Worli Sea Link adds to the beauty of monsoons. Driving in the midst of the ocean with the rains slashing against your car gives you different high all together.
It's an enrapturing experience in itself, to listen to the patter on the roof-tops, on the trees, on the roads, on your windows or to listen to the sound of winds and rain slashing together with the wind chime on your fenestella. The feel you get on getting drenched in the heaven sent drops, the feel of getting all plaguing thoughts washed away...can't be described in mere words. The world around you starts to seem a better place...more serene than ever, more tranquil than ever !!!
Indeed it's fortunate to be a Mumbaikar, to be blessed with four such months of panacea pour.
