The First Rains

What do you people do when it rains for the first time in the year. remember the smell of earth. it's such a good setting. i used to make pakoras and share it with my family and friends who used to come down to our bungalow. we used to assemble in our barsaati talk a lot and have those pakoras. and of course wioth hot coffee. i really miss those days.

I used to love it when we used to talk of ghost stories etc when there was lightening. i feel like going back to india and doing the same thing again. but then it will be difficult to assemble those people again all have gone their own separate ways!

have pakoras.
What the hell thing is pokaras?

First rain ... beautiful soft, satin skin, red creatures size of little finger nails, used to burrow out from fresh wet earth. We collected and kept them in match boxes. Last time I asked children back home and they had no idea what I was talking about.

We used to do the same! In our part of the world (PUNJAB), the red bugs are called laal vahuti, meaning bride in red.

BTW, I think Pakoras are the equivalent of bhajiya in central india.

Yes... yes... Yogi Ji, that was so much fun. I wonder if they still show up when it rains, because I tried to look for them over 8-9 years ago, I couldn't

Oh yeah I love the rains too. The smell of earth, chitchatting with friends/cousins, pakoras and coffee and a kambhal to wrap around .


I remember when we were travelling in buses between small towns near my village . It used to be so beautiful when it rained.


I love those days ..................and I miss home


My best rain song is: Rhim Jhim Rhim Jhim(1942)
