In the blazing, scorching summer
pick up some colours
paint the wings of butterflies
set them free
watch them soar
against the scorched summer sky
add their colours to hazy blue
life is beautiful
sometimes by nature
sometimes by actions
Summer… summer… summer in full fury… the temperature has gotten a bit mild but no signs of rain at all… the only relief that we bengalis get.
I remember when i first came to Bengal, back then, and for years thereafter this season meant scorching days ending in a kalbaisakhi and relief. Kalbaisakhi is a typical storm of Bengal spring, early summer, a very dark gathering of cloud, fierce storm, heavy downpour sometimes with hail and then quick disappearance of cloud- usually everything done within hour or a little longer. Kalbaisakhis were real frequent seven to eight storms were quite normal every month. Now… though met department sometimes try to brand some summer storms as kalbaisakhi but they are gone, their annual show is mostly one or two and this year well, apparently no show in calcutta.
Nature is getting real wicked these days :)
So, ignore the winter rain in spring or scorching summer in spring, whatever you are facing and know that she is playing with all, not only you. naughty naughty mother earth. :)
Have a great weekend and week ahead.

AND THE PRIVATE BLOGS
my fb account is sharmishtha.basu.50, if you want to join me there, do leave me a message, to tell me, and if you find any discrepancy, or something confuses you about the account, like an old friend of mine got confused and ended up in the account of another sharmishtha basu, a married woman with a kid, and only after he congratulated me on my kid did he realized that he was standing in front of a stranger’s house, that woman uses my spelling and our profiles are slightly different, now that is a little too annoying co-incidence! any way… just double check if you get confused. I use my signature photograph in my profile and the header of mydomainpvt as backgroudn pic in fb.
