Hello friends, few days ago, I have posted (https://mousumisays.wordpress.com/2021/09/14/enjoying-a-rainy-day/) about the virtues of a rainy day. I also did mention that too much of everything is bad. That’s precisely what happening in Kolkata. It’s been raining ever since with a brief respite, in between.
From the last night onwards, it feels like the sky is pouring all it’s reserve. The hospitals, roads and various locality across Kolkata have been literally inundated. In the month of September this deluge is quite unprecedented. Don’t know whether this is another instance of climate change or some others phenomena.
I had to go out today for an important appointment along with my husband. It was raining so hard that driving a car became like navigating a boat. It was an experience hard to describe. Imagine the adrinalin rush, the wheels were almost submerged in the flowing water along the road. In the haze of falling rain, the visibility had drastically reduced. Fortunately very few vehicles were plying, to have any trouble on that front.
Our destination was new to both of us, and google maps were not working properly. There was nobody on the road whom we could ask the exact route. Whatever information we got, let us reache our address on time. It was just like floating on our way to our destination.
For your information, its still raining. The met office says it will for another 48 hours.
