Connaught on an Monsoon Evening

It is not often that it rains so much in Delhi, the capital of this beautiful country, India.

But this year’s monsoon thus far has been a majestic one with non-stop rains for the past 48 hours almost and boy, I’m not complaining. I’ve been feeling happy, and content within and trust me when I say, the weather has got a huge role to play. You see, most people love sunshine, summers, etc. Not that I loathe them myself but there is something really magical, something majestic about the monsoons which just takes my breath away in an instant.

And then there is photography. I love how the rains provide us with some amazing chance to photograph everything around us. You don’t need a hefty DSLR to always get the shot. A mere cell-phone these days is capable of creating some amazing pictures.

I hope this spell continues for a few more days, for India is predominantly a country where summer rules the roost, so to speak. So, monsoons, you’re more than welcome to stay as long as you like, love. 🙂

This is what the main roads of Delhi look like with just 20 minutes of monsoon rains. With miles long traffic jams, and a “lake” right in the middle of the main road, it becomes absolutely impossible to move.

And this is the case every monsoon. I wonder when will the Government finally wake up and take some solid step to curb such issues. And to think of it, Delhi does not even receive 20% of the rain-fall what cities like Mumbai or many states in the South or North-East India receive!
