When breeze blows and rain falls, every heart is filled with delight. People go out to the canal or the river to hold picnic.
Some people go out to enjoy sight of nature. Young girls gather under some big tree to enjoy swing. They enjoy going up and down on the swing. They sing sweet songs. These songs give us great pleasure. Thus they make merry. Little children come out with loin clothes. They bathe in the rain water.
Some of them roll in dirty rain water. They float paper boats in the running water. How they shout when their boats sink or are carried away by the current of water! Everything in nature has fresh look after rain.
The grass that looked withered in summer’s heat a day before raises its head proudly. It moves to and fro when the winds blow. The cuckoo sings its sweet songs from mango tree. It hails the rain. How sweet are its songs? Peacock dances to welcome rain. There are pools of water here and there.
Houses and streets wash off their dirt. Trees and plants are bathed in rain water. They look gay and green. Animals and birds also enjoy the rain. The frogs make a very pleasant noise after the rain. They begin to croak.
After rain roads, lanes and streets are covered with mud. It causes much trouble. We .cannot walk without spoiling our clothes. Everybody feels uncomfortable for some time. Boys have to stop out-door games. People become bored and inactive. At some places railway track is damaged when it rains heavily.
Mud huts begin to leak. Some are damaged under heavy rains. Sometimes people fall ill when they get wet. They fall a prey to skin diseases. On the whole a rainy day in the summer is generally full of joy. It brings comfort to us. It is fully enjoyable if the sun does not appear.
But if the clouds break up the sun begins to shine more brightly. Then our joy disappears. The wind fails.
Oh! there is close again. The heat becomes more intense. How miserable we feel! The roads get muddy. Here and there the careless passers-by slip down. How people make fun of them! They spoil their clothes. But all the same rain is a must in a country like India.
