Crazy pouring rain pattering away on tin rooftops of shops, making small puddles on the road. The aroma of hot pakoras and steaming cups of chai.

A change in climate, a change in clothes, colorful umbrellas mushrooming everywhere, people scattering for cover, trees bursting with new life…

Me cooing with my baby just like the cuckoo bird, coo coo.
