It starts on Thursday evening; chennai receives continues rain for 3 days. It affects much people mostly the people who are staying in low areas faces flooded. In my place, the surroundings are full of water even if we want to buy some thing we have to walk on the feet long water. It looks like island, that our only street and flat was mound, we escape from water, but our opposite empty flat have 3 feet water. In the weeklong rain much insect have arrived, and every one come across our compound and enter inside the Flat. After 6 in evening we close our Door and Windows to avoid them entering inside the house. We can see many snails, leeches, millipedes on the compounds and some times caterpillars. As soon the sky darks all the frogs on the water started to freight like ambulance, and hope to see some cranes soon.
Every year the diwali brings a bore thing of sharing the Diwali sweets with relatives after worshiping the “Nombu”. Some of our relatives brought us diwali sweets and snacks, and now it’s our turn. So mom and aunty prepared Athirasam, Murukku (twine) and Ottaiadai on Friday. I also helped mom by kneading the flour and shaping it round, so she drop it in the oil and fry. In the reason of kneading the sweet flour, I drop some flour inside the mouth, it was very tasty. I am the first person to taste it in bake, after some times if will taste as much. On Sunday dad and mom got ready to visit some of our relatives house to distribute the Diwali sweets. As I was expect to know about the situation of the city in the rain, so I was with them. Actually I was not interested to visit relatives house, as they used to urge to come to their house, I just sit in car and listen to music.
The Adyar River was full flow of water, and in a place (Ashok Nagar) there was in a little bit gape to flow above the bridge. On the way return I like to go on the Mount road, its been a while I went on that road, always this road will be over traffic, but on Sunday the road was very quite and clean with little vehicles and much political flags on the side of the roads. We reached marina beach at 4.30 and the climate was wonderful, I saw new river found on the beach in the rain. Every year I visit Marina on rainy days to see the rainwater staying on the shore and sand. We had a speed drive on the rainwater; I enjoy going on the water by force. I feel its crazy act; but it was cool that every one turns towards us to see our play in water. Two years back when the whole sand was wet and we droved on the sand till sea, it was my long time wish to ride on the sand of the beach like how it comes in films. Some are bathing on the rainwater and playing.
