Bob Marley is quoted to have said "Some people feel the rain. Others just get wet."
I feel this more than ever because the childhood has been stripped of it.
People around me cringe at the sight of an overcast or the rumbling of thunderclouds. The joy I feel is beyond description.
So when I stepped out in Calcutta today and it rained cats and dogs, I could not help myself from flinging away the umbrella and soaking up the showers. Half an hour I walked the streets on my own, tasting the pure water and feeling them cleanse me.
There's hardly a feeling more satisfying.
