The Symphony Of Nature

"Raindrops Taste Like Tears Without the Pain" – Queensryche Band

It’s raining today. Here in Salalah, the people call this the “Khareef Season”. I love the rain more than any kind of weather. The sound of those raindrops against the window is one of the most soothing sounds in the world. I love the smell of rain and the wet sand. It’s so utterly refreshing and renewing. The city looks cleaner somehow, as if it has been washed off..taking away all the negativity that surrounds it’s daily life.

I sit by the window looking out…with a cup of tea in my hands, while a Faiz Ahmed Faiz ghazal sung by Mehdi Hassan plays softly in the room..

” Gulon mein rang bhare baad-e-naubahaar chale
Chale bhi aao ke gulshan ka kaarobaar chale…”

The wind makes the raindrops swirl in this direction and that..Like notes of music floating around echoing the symphony of nature. I am totally in sync with the rain…I feel its emotions…and I become the rain.


  1. Very Nice Description enjoying the rain sitting by your window...

  2. @ Harsha - Thank you, I love the rain :)

  3. that explains why rains are termed romantic :)
    I love having pakoris to be honest .. let the drizzling dash with the winds and hit my face peeping through the windows and tea in one hand and pakoras in another and
    India playing live cricket in some other nation ..
    Thats an ideal romantic monsoon day for me .. :D

  4. @ Jack - I understand the tea and pakora part..but a live cricket match ?? and its supposed to be the ideal romantic thing ??? sigh..guys will be guys I guess :P
