Monsoon is the festival of greeneryIt has been raining in Delhi since yesterday night. Although to me it is nothing but a light drizzle, for the Delhiwallas (and also for the -wallis), it is medium to heavy rain. The rain has been continuing throughout the day. Just now I have returned from my office. While entering my residence, I looked towards the grass in front of our residence. It is lush, exuberant green. It looks like a green carpet. The leaves of the trees and plants in my block display various shades of green; some dark green, some light green. Even the parakeets chirping on the giant mango tree beside our residence are green and perfectly fit in the green environment.
I feel that a festival of greenery has begun since yesterday. This is very soothing to the eyes. Maybe to celebrate this festival, my wife is cooking two different curries of two different green vegetables.
