Rain, the most beautiful form of nature, its calm, and serene. It is the most relaxing form of nature that can be given to humans. It’s a gift indeed.
Rain can bring eternal peace and joy to your soul. A kind of peace that cannot be explained by words. Can’t be seen, cannot be heard. It can just be felt. Felt from within the depth of your heart. The first drop of rain, is the most peaceful thing to have ever existed.
When the first drop touches the ground, the smell of wet soil, in itself is the most elegant essence of nature. The rain gives you a lot f reasons to enjoy it. You don’t have to go out. You can just be in your house, and enjoy spending time with yourself which you barely do.
Sitting by the window on a rainy afternoon, reading a John Keats or Voltaire, while sipping from the cup of coffee is something you would never want to miss. Its like re-living your life. It like bringing peace that your mind craved.
Soft winds that slowly turn into wild storm, the sky that was bright with the sun shining, slowly gets dark. Like the sky wrapped itself with the blanket of clouds. The clouds that have different colours in them, grey black blue, like someone just painted the sky with every possible shade of blue.
The trees put on a different charm as the clouds appear. Like they have been waiting for them, like a lover waits for her long lost love. The leaves shine as the drops of rain slowly embraces them. Like they have been given a new life. A new purpose.
Have you ever stood under the rain? Just stand and not think anything. Not move, not think how your life is going, or about the future. It’s all just about how the rain seeps through your clothes and touches your skin. It is the most soothing thing one can go through.
The rain is like a blessing, yet a curse to some. Or can we just call it the blessed curse sent by the Gods above!

While the human race is locked inside the house to fight COVID 19, a pandemic which held the entire world hostage in unprecedented and unparalleled manners, while one is even debarred to visit neighborhood milk booth and one is prohibited to cross over to another district in a same state, every piece of literary work is an expression of paranoia in one way or other. View of shillong from Shillong Peak Nation is facing most harsh form of lockdown, and consequent toll on human, psychological as well as physiological, is pushing to the limit of tolerance. At this crossroad in life, picturesque lush green meadow, hills covered with pine trees, fresh air and country roads driven me nostalgic and take me far away from new normal, every time I remembered of Shillong. ‘Scotland of India’ title it rightfully defended perched in East Khasi Hill district of Meghalaya, Shillong lies at north eastern corner on Indian Map. Shillong is the capital of Meghalaya. Entomology of the word Meghalaya stands

Pandemic from the eyes of a Villager

I am a city born and have lived in cities my entire life. I have stayed in cities like Bhubaneswar, Kolkata, Mumbai and Bangalore and always had the best facilities that could be provided to a person. So, every time there was national wide concern, I always saw it from the point of view of city life.
