I love rain (Mazha).... especially the magical Monsoon rain from God's Own Country, Kerala (where I grew up in a rural village). .it always pour sweet memories and its always remind me my sweet days... and always with me in my good and bad times...its depth and beauty is unexplainable in words compared to the monochromatic rain in Portland.
