These are a few of my favourite things..
Its raining here.Its good to see the rain and the fresh clean look outside.But somehow it lacks a beauty that we see in our KALAVARSHAM/MONSOON in Kerala.Its wonderful,its so so so beautiful.Seeing rain is nostalgic for me.
I remember getting up early mornings listening to the sounds of rain,when we were at home back in kerala.We were going to celebrate Onam a week earlier:)The night before ,Boss's cousin and me were preparing flowers to make POOKALAM the next day.We were seperating the petals the whole night.Now what i saw in the morning was the petals floating in the water in the naduthalam.i just sat nearby and watched. It was still dark,even though it was almost 6 am.nobody was awake other than me and his mami in the kichen starting the day.I was hoping for the rain to stop,only then we can make the POOKALAM!! I went out and sat on the cane chair,in the verandah.all the plants are soaked in water but looking so green.As i was watching,the rain slowly came to an end. I saw his cousin coming.We both decided to start the work.He is a good artist.He drew a beautiful outline.It took almost 2 hours by the time we finished it.It was the first time i made one and it was very very beautiful.
