An ode to Varuna

Rain rain go away,
Come again another day
Bangalore city choked today
Rain rain go away

Exasperated because of the incessant drizzle that threw life out of gear yesterday at Bengaluru. It is looking good so far with dull weather and just one spell so far. I love rains, but only when it is a downpour.

At least another 45 minutes or so before I start for home. :-) Hope Varuna holds off till I reach home. :-)

Any type of rain, drizzle, downpour, or otherwise is the only thing that will keep Karnataka and Tamil Nadu away from each others' throats. So we shall grin, get wet, and bear it.

@Ramesh-Nature is always fine, but our man-made infrastructure is the one that croaks. :-( Hopefully it has rained sufficiently well in the catchment.

@zeno-Hee Hee Hee. Romantic? I wrote this post to hope for no rains and get out of traffic logjam. :-)

@Matangi Mawley-:-) :-) I love the brief silence after the rains. Did a post on that when I started blogging. :-)

@RS-Your comment didn't land in before this. :-(

:-) :-) That movie was pretty decent. I liked it when I first saw it.

@zeno- Its romantic untill we step out after the downpour.
Esp with kids, even i hope for a downpour only in the nights and a clear daytime.

Whatever time I posted this, the rains stopped here and there is nothing more than a drizzle for around 2-3 minutes. Chennai pakkam aedhaavadhu vandhudhaa? :-)

@chennaigirl-zeno is an youngster. avarukku anubhavam paththaadhu. :-) :-)
@Anu-Did you poem entice Varuna to visit your hotspot? :-) :-)
