Rain Rain Go Away !!
November 18, 2008
Almost all the people reading this post would know the rhyme in the title…. Ya, the rhymes class in kindergarten ooohh…..jumping and dancing showing everyone who comes home that I have a lovely voice see, I can sing and dance 😀 as if that’s the greatest achievement in the world (genuinely ignorant – as in my last post –of all wonders of world)!! As I child, I used go jump in the rain outside (when my mom was not at home and to the horror of my grandmom), when it rained shouting this rhyme…..hehe now I am laughing out loud on myself….little did I understand the meaning of it…I just loved the tune 😀 Uff…. cant help telling my life history can I 😛 ? Coming back to the post… Ever wondered where it came from?? I never wondered 😉 But recently I realised where it could have possibly come from…. Common, no kid (or even adult) in India would ever want the rain to go away ..do you agree?? Its here in UK, all through the year its more or less damp….every morning you get up , look out through your window and see if its raining or not…. Well, you cant even be more glad if it does not rain in morning when you are getting out of your home, by the time you reach your destination, it might be pouring down….Ahh well…so is English weather … Its either sunny and wet or gloomy and damp…[ohh its not that sad as well, am just generalising a bit 😉 ]….those small shots of sunny weather in summer makes you feel like going out and dance (just as we in India jump in rain)! I hate umbrellas….I prefer getting drenched you see….my mom always used to tease me saying you will go to such a place where you would fall for umbrella…and see it came true…Arghhhhhh 😡 ….. what is this yaar?? Now I carry an umbrella, wear a rain proof jacket all the time 😦 So, little John wants the rain to go away so that he can go to his yard and play under the sun (if its there) or play in his dry yard even when its cloudy!! Rain Rain go away come again other day! Little Johnny wants to play !!! Rain Rain go to Spain, And never come here again !! [as I gather english envy the spanish climate since its sunny and tans them 😛 ]
[But still I love rain 😀 ]PS: And the most sad part for me is, even though its raining all the time, it never smells of the rain….do you get what I mean?? I miss the scent of soil of my country 😦 …
