The First Showers


Delhi’s heat had reached a point where people couldn’t take it anymore, there was a whole lot of disgust and irritation amongst everyone and it was pretty much evident in their behaviour and day to day activities. No wonder, it did the same to Pratishtha. She had somehow forgotten to see logic in any conversation. Of late, she had become too irritating to tackle. She and Gautam had been having several arguments most of which seemed nonsensical once the fight got over. However hard they tried, things were just not turning right and all this had begun to take a toll on not just their relationship but also on their work.
And then one day, all of a sudden, amidst the commotion of work and deadlines, barged the winds on her face through the open window. She instantly looked out only to find that the weather had taken a beautiful turn. The scorching heat had been replaced by the cool winds, the sky was a little cloudy, conveying the arrival of the beautiful weather. She smiled to herself thinking how marvelous would it be to have him around at this point of time. But then she looked at her watch, there was still time for office hours to get over.
Nevertheless, she picked up her phone to call him up. 
“Hey!” he called out from the other end.
“Look out of the window,” she spoke getting excited like a kid.
“I am in the conference room,” he replied, “Give me a second.”
“Ahh!”
“Miss me?” she asked.
“I do. Coffee after work?” he asked.
“Yes,” she blushed as she replied. He had the power to make her blush like a teenager even after two years of being together.
At six, as she walked out of her office, she saw him waiting at the gate. She tried hard to resist the urge to hug him tight and just went up to him, giggling ear to ear.
“Let’s walk to the coffee shop, the weather deserves it,” he said.
“It does and so do we,” she held his hand tight and began walking.
All was forgotten and forgiven. Sometimes when humans fail to revive back the love in their relationship, weather comes to their rescue. Their love was true, nature had to intervene to bring the two souls back to being perfect. 
Have you ever been in love? How does it make you feel? Do you think that the weather has a huge role in your bond?

    I being a pluviophile feel that … Rain plays a vital role in our lives… If we are in love… or have a partner… or had a tiff.. all we think of is patching up and love all and If we are single.. we yearn to have a love in life… Rain for me is LOVE… "Jaise Barkha- Saawan hai.. ek duje ke vaaste"
