Pit Pit Patter Of The Raindrops...


The evening was round the corner. The skies casted the gloomy shadows making the ambiance all the more dull. I was waiting at the entrance of the society  for my daughter to come home from the school. Suddenly it started raining. Good Lord!!! I had an umbrella ready with me. By the time I opened the umbrella, a bus came to a screeching halt, splashing some water over me. Oh no....I don't want to get wet at this hour, my mind sulked....

But then something was to change... Here came my bubbly bundle, all full of energy, in spite of spending five good hours at school! With her usual grin she chirped...

Barish aai cham cham cham,
Lekar chata nikale hum,
Pair fisal gaye,
Gir gaye hum,
Niche chata uper hum.....

Then she busted in her usual hearty laughter. It turned out to be the Midas touch. Suddenly my heart was filled with the sunshine of the happiness. 

As we marched towards, our building, my daughter waived to our neighbouring couple. Both of them seemed to be lost in their own world. As I passed by them, I heard uncle humming the song...

Pyar huva, ikarar huva hai,
Pyar se fir kyun darata hai dil...

That reminded me of Raj Kapoor and Nargis...their subtle romance under the big black umbrella!! Here at that moment, uncle and aunty appeared just like the Raj Kapoor and Nargis. The rain gods have transformed the reel life to real...

My stream of thought was broken by the loud sneezing sound. I saw a young lady, drenched in water. She was coaxing her Activa to start up...but in vain. Is she Madhubala, I wondered??? I then found myself singing the song...

Ek ladaki, bhigi baghi si...

The young lady turned her head and gave me a broad smile!!!

Our march continued. There came a train of bachu-kachus of our society. The engine driver, the guard and the passengers, all clad in colourful raincoats,  were enjoying the rains. Their train was chugging to the tune...

Ghode jaisi chal, hathi jaisi dum,
Oh sawan raja kaha se aye tum!
Chuk dhum dhum, chuck dhum dhum, chuck dhum, chuck...

As the engine driver blew his whistle and the guard waved bye to us, we continued ahead.

Now we were right in front of our home. Man of the house, who had just returned from the office, welcomed both the ladies with a song that he was singing...

Rim zim gire sawan,
Sulag, sulag jaye man,
Bhige aaj is mausam me,
Lagi kaisi ye agan...

The expressions on his face and the song made be blush and soon it was not just the rain but that love that showered all over my world. My heart started to beat to the tune...

Barso re megha megha,
Barso re megha baraso...

And to give me the company in my blissful world was the Pit Pit Patter Of The Raindrops...
