Today I experienced my first rains in Mumbai. It came as a relief, helping the struggling city with a breath of freshness. A lot of people got out of their offices early, just standing under the downpour, soaking in every bit of the beautiful raindrops on their body.
People suddenly became more compassionate towards each other, they started behaving like kids. The security guard gave everyone a huge smile and not the customary (and irritating) salute. I was happily getting drenched keeping my laptop under a shade and suddenly I saw two more guys join in and then there were more. Slowly I sneaked out of the group. Let Mumbai enjoy its rains.
I walked back alone, the rain cleansing me of my sins. I felt pure, I felt free and once again I felt happy.
