An essay on a rainy day.
After the unbearable heat of the summer season, people welcome the rainy season. The rain falls. The temperature comes down. It is a great relief.
The sky on a rainy day
The sky is overcast with clouds. The sun is not visible. Sometimes the day becomes dark. There are occasional flashes of lightning and the loud roar of the thunder.
The rain begins
At first the rain falls in drops. Then it falls in torrents, sometimes for hours together. The roads in the countryside become muddy and slippery. The drains are filled up. It is difficult to walk along the road. In some towns there are underground drains. The rain water cannot easily pass into the drains. So the streets are flooded. It is a sight to see.
Suffering of the people
When there is heavy rainfall, the roads are flooded. People have to wade through the water. Thus a heavy rainfall causes great inconvenience to people, specially the office-goers and workers. In old houses and huts the rainwater leaks through the roof. So people who live there feel great inconvenience. People cannot go to market. Dealers in fish and fresh vegetables suffer loss if they do not get purchasers. Poor day-labourers cannot go out. They lose their day’s wages.
Comfortable to some persons
Some persons have not to go out when it rains heavily. They remain comfortably at home. As day’s marketing is not possible many people prepare khichuri. It is a very palatable food to many people. Many people are fond of eating pan-parag, fried rice mixed with mustard oil, green pepper, onion and fried groundnuts in such a weather. Some lie down comfortably in their soft bed and read light novels. Some play indoor games like cards, arom, ludo etc.
Rainy day and School boys
School boys generally welcome a rainy day. They find an excuse to be absent from school. Some boys go to school. They feel great joy to wade through the water. They thoroughly drench themselves willingly. They go to school in wet dress. The attendance at school is generally thin on such a day. So the school is dismissed. No roll is called. The Headmaster declares a rainy day. Boys are very glad. They go home with a happy heart.
Though we welcome the rain, poor people suffer very much. Office-goers and other busy men have to go out even in the midst of the rain. A rainy day causes inconvenience to them. So it is welcome to some, while others do not like a rainy day.
