The monsoon has finally settled into Mumbai. It’s been raining consistently for the past couple of days now.
I don’t normally like rainy weather. The dull, grey sky dampens my spirits. However, I’ve come to realise that the start of the monsoon season is my favourite time of the year in India.
After months of containing myself in the air conditioned bedroom, to avoid being covered in a persistent layer of perspiration, it’s really refreshing to be able to throw open the windows. The cool air is so invigorating.
Last night I went to sleep with the bedroom window open, lulled into relaxation by the soothing sound of rain outside. I feel so alive!
