Rains are a great blessing for mankind. They are welcomed by all young and old alike especially in the summer season. Rains are the backbone of our agricultural economy. The farmers in our country also welcome them. Sometimes they may also prove to be a curse when they cause floods in many parts of our country bringing untold miseries to our people. Untimely rains may ruin the standing crops also. But there is no doubt that the prosperity of our county depends greatly on the rains.
The prosperity of our farmers greatly depends on rains. If the rains are sufficient then we have a good agricultural crop and if they are scantly then famine takes place in many parts of our country. On the other hnd if there are more rains than needed they bring ruination for the people. Thus we can say that rains are both a blessing and a curse for our countrymen.
In the summer season when it is very hot the people pray for rains. So that they can get some relief from the scorching heat of the sun. As such tie when the clouds appear on the sky every body becomes happy. I remember one such day last June when it was very hot. But all of a sudden the sky was overcast with dark and thick clouds. After sometime a coo breeze began to blow bringing down the high temperature.
It now looked that rain was quite imminent. The clouds also started thundering and we could understand that there would be a heavy downpour. Then suddenly it started raining heavily. The joy of the people knew no bounds. At that time I was going to the market and go wet. But I took shelter immediately in a shop lest I should be fully drenched.
The children were very happy and were running in the rain water removing their clothes. Many small children started swimming in the streets. They would play and shout with joy. The small children also started playing with paper boats which they had made with multi colored paper.
No doubt the trees looked as if they were washed by nature. The leaves now looked green and pleasant as if they had changed their clothes. The farmers were also very happy as they hoped to have good crops now. Even the animals and birds were full of joy and mirth. Some ladies and old men could also be seen moving with their umbrellas after rain was over.
