Yes, I know everyone's been on about late monsoons and all. I know people who're nauseating in their love for the rain.
I can manage a drizzle, yes. Those ten minutes between drizzle and I-need-shelter-now rain, I can manage. What I detest is the kind of rain that gets EVERYWHERE. In your shoes and in your clothes. Through windows and doors. Into your very being.
I do enjoy this rain, when I'm indoors. When I can cuddle up with a mocha and a blanket and rum. And a movie.
But that's when I genuinely have nothing to do.
This rain is crippling me. It's crippling everyone on the Western Line (I take the train from Dadar) It started the minute I woke up. I had to brush my teeth to the sounds of my aunt making frantic phone calls to see if trains were running.
"Won't be on till evening, you have to stay here"
My house, everyone has disaster mentality, I tell you.
So here I am, my first lecture starts in 5 minutes (didn't want to attend that one anyway) and I'm stuck in a home that is not my own. With no mocha and definitely no rum. And no good company (or a means of gathering good company).
