Monsoon Madness

Monsoon Madness – Travelling by train in India opens you out of a vista of rain-washed, chequered fields and  people toiling within…

The rains bring a new lease of life and happiness to the vast majority of the population who rejoice in the rebirth of the parched earth… As Gibran says’

The field and the cloud are lovers
And between them I am a messenger of mercy.
I quench the thirst of one;
I cure the ailment of the other.

It was on one such memorable journey from Danapur to Varanasi, that I spied these women returning to the fields after lunch…..

An insanely crazy rainy day was coming to an end…. whipping winds and thundering clouds slowly part way to a glorious rain washed sky that looks insanely blue and fresh….

In the space of a mere 20 minutes, the sky went from thundering blacks to a beautiful blue with powder puff clouds….
