Apr 09 , I was riding back home I felt something on my arms. It turned out it was rain, totally unexpected! In the dark , the clouds were not visible, but it was the first rain of 2007. Next day happened to watch the rain from the window..yeah obviously office window..:-(. I didnt get a chance to go out and enjoy the weather. Actually i had plan to go out with my friend but he ditched me..

The rainy season doesn't start until may but starting now we will have some occasional rains like this which the locals sometimes call "the mango rains" because the mangoes are just now starting to come in.
