Varsha, Rain, And The Rhyme It was on 15<SUP>th</SUP> of October 2007, midnight, when my labor was induced!! I was very sleepy despite the pain!!!! I have never been awake to midnight for anything like this before!! "Can I have my delivery tomorrow morning?" I inquired the doctor. Some of the nurses started to laugh among themselves. What is there to giggle when a person is in so much of pain that I have to skip a night's sleep? I could not understand!! Suddenly, thunder rattles the window and walls and the rain begins to fall!! It was raining heavily when I delivered my blessing of life. I always loved rain like most of you and I can relate most of my romantic and sensitive moments with the rain!! And only then it dawn on me that I will name my little angel "Varsha!!!!" This flashback is just to relate to the rainy evening a day before!! My transcription work ended that day surprisingly early by 3 p.m. itself. I was shutting down my system thinking about the possibilities of going out, while my daughter and my mother were playing with the doctor's set in the porch. Suddenly, the skies grew dark clouds and rain started to fall!! Seeing the rain, my daughter lost interest in that doctor's set and started to jump and dance reciting the rhymes she knows. She ran into the rain laughing loud before I could catch her and I was so happy to see her enjoying!! When the rain diminished in intensity, my mother made some paper boats and they both float them in the rainwater!! My daughter is now reciting "Rain, Rain, Go Away!!" Did she really mean it? Of course, she did not and I am sure the rain knew it too!! It is just the start and the rainy season is yet to set in!! I wish that my work to get over early in the rainy days to spend time with my daughter!! Anyways, that was a rejuvenating evening with a ravishing rain and rhythmic rhyme!!
