My Love Hate Relationship with Rains

Now that Monsoons have started in Chennai, my relationship with rains have gone again to another level. Every season, my relationship with rains would change. I hate summer rains, I like monsoon rains, I hate winter rains and spring rains are the best!! Wonderign why I am having this Love Hate Relationship with Rains? Let me explain it little better.

Here in Chennai, the Summer rains would typically come in the evening that with damaal dhumeel sounds. Didn’t understand it yet? After the intense heat in the morning, which would be very sultry, suddenly the sky would turn pitch black and the rains would start in no time with heavy winds. Then comes the loud thunder sounds, which I hate as I don’t like those sudden loud noises. Even my pet brother gets scared of them.

But Monsoon rains are soo sweet, we will have the rains whole day. It would be steady drizzles and I love to play in them. Even my pet brother comes out and plays with me some times. We both dance in the rains. The best part of these monsoon rains is that, we would always have the hot soup or green tea ready for us in the house. As soon as we start feeling little cold, we can go into the house, change our clothes and mommy would give hot soup. After drinking the soup, we can go out into the rain and mommy would never say anything. Also, the long drives during monsoons would be very good. We can stop to eat hot corn or mirchi bajji you know?

Winter rains are so boring, already it would be cold outside and if at all if rain comes also it would be very cold and my mommy will not allow me to play. Also my granny gets worried that the crops would get spoiled if it rains in winter. So I always pray to my friend little Krishna and rain god not to rain in winters you know.

Spring rains are the best out of all rains, as it would get us the nice fresh scents from the earth and blooming spring flowers. We would have missed rains for a long time right, so my mom would also join in me celebrating the spring rains. That’s another reason why I like the spring rains. What about you friends?

  1. I will take rains in India anytime after I saw the freezing rains of Canada. To be hit by that in middle of winters is the worst feeling ! And yes, monsoon rains are always lovely affair 🙂

    1. I can agree with you 100%. I was there in one of the coldest winters in Toronto. The freezing rains are such a night mare.

  2. This is cute – after all what’s the point of rains if they scare you or you’re not allowed to get wet and play in them!

  3. Ah, I love spring rains too. Such a relief during summers! I totally get your love-hate relationship with rains 🙂
    Thanks for participating in the blog hop. Hope you had fun 🙂

  4. Wow! We have heavy rain in mumbai from past few days which happened to cancel our plans to go on an outing in last weekend. 😭. I love rains only when its the time to rain. Otherwise, it gets annoying.

    1. Thank you Rajlakshmi for dropping by. Yes that too if someone else gives us that hot soup in monsoons after we get wet, its just like touching the heaven

  5. I still play in the rains when I go home ( Mumbai) to visit. You have brought back memories of the monsoon season and I am smiling misty eyed. Hot soup after a good soaking in the rains would’ve tasted so good.

    1. Yes Sulekha, that too, if someone else serves that soup to us, we dont need anything else in the world. Even I get wet with my kid in the rains

    1. Thank you Rajesh, the rains come though not regularly but due to storms once in a while in every season in Chennai

  6. I was born in the rainy season, I guess thats why it has a special place in my heart. I totally agree with you, we all have a love and hate relation with it.

  7. Even I am stuck in that Love hate relationship with rain and didn’t know when it entered into a complete hate zone! Trying hard to get myself out of it. May be this post will help achieve it.

  8. I never knew it rained so much in chennai. Every time I’ve visited that city it has been hot and humid . Thank you Shrav for putting things in perspective. Perhaps I should visit Chennai this Spring

    1. Chennai gets rains only if there are cyclones in Bay of Bengal. 😀 But my kid loves to call them based on various seasons as every rain will be little unique in his view😀

  9. Nice to read this lovely post about your love-hate relationship with the rains! I’m in it too! Monsoon and spring showers are y kind of thing but never the winter rains…

  10. I wasnt aware that Chennai gets rains in all the seasons and that too of different characteristics. Interesting. I can totally get this love hate relationship with rains, though in my case, its predominantly hate and less of love. LOL 😀

  11. I love thunder and lightening actually though dont get to see much of it here in Gurgaon. I love the way you have related your feelings with the rain in every season – btw you are lucky to have rains 4 times in the year. We are lucky if we get a proper monsoon here in Gurgaon.

    1. Shalini, we do get rains very intermittently like in Gurgaon. Only difference is that since Bay of Bengal is prone to cyclones, we get our rains mainly due to cyclones.😀

  12. You get rains four times in a year- wow!! Thats awesome. I love the rains and am lucky if we get proper monsoon here in Gurgaon. I like how you have shared your feelings for each rainy spell – really makes sense the way you have put it out there 🙂
