Winter Rains

ImageBefore the other blogs on my ‘readers’ panel entice me to read and read, i must open up my ‘new post’ section so that i can write! I’ve been thinking that the title of my blog mentions ‘seasons of life’ and how is it that I’ve not written something about my favorite season ‘winters’.

Although ‘winters’ here in India can be quite harsh and mean at times with numerous cases and incidents of people dying in various regions of the country, i still love this weather. For me, this season is all about trendy overcoats/jackets/scarves, hot cup of coffee, choco-muffins, roasted dry-fruits and the yummy Indian dessert ‘gajar halwa’. Apart from that a clear skin is a bonus in winters! 😉

ImageToday, when i was coming to my office, i encountered heavy rain and had to wait on the station so that i could catch an auto to the ‘madhouse’ (my office). Its astonishing that in the month of January when the cold breeze is likely to die-down, the rains are escalating the coldness in the weather. Moments like these really make you think about the larger picture like ‘Climate Change and Global Warming’. Its not a big deal for us as individuals that its raining in winters and its just another day but when you think a little more, dive deep into thoughts and take a bigger perspective, keeping in mind your society, environment and your planet, these things do matter to us. How often I’ve done something about my society? Have i thought about planting a tree or saving electricity? How about keeping my environment clean and spreading a word about being a little environment conscious? These are some questions that we all should ask ourselves occasionally, we can’t be mean all the time and think about our personal gain out of it. Yes, there is a gain but in terms of a safe environment where our children can grow without any fear of natural calamities, a society with enough resources and happiness everywhere.

I am all set to initiate my baby steps to save my environment but till then lovin’ the rains in winters 🙂

Happy Winters!
