[Opinions] Why do we love Rain?

‘Rains’ hearing this word, a smile curves on our faces. Lots of childhood memories pops out in our mind, lots of songs related to rains, the smell of rain, the sound of rain, anything and everything related to it fills us with a certain kind of joy. Well we all love rains but not for similar reasons, so let’s find out why people across the country love rains:

Rosemary Anthony, Delhi

It washes out everything, the trees looks so beautiful, green and clean, they look like dancing with the rhythm of pouring rains that’s why I love rains and of course the cool breeze that accompanies the rains is better than any AC, fan or cooler. I love that kind of climate, calm, breezy, neither too hot nor too cold and therefore, rains is what I keep waiting for.

Nehali Lalwani, Nadiad

I feel love of sky for earth has been showered in the form of rains. I just love the small puddles on road that are filled up with water, I love the sudden change in the atmosphere making it filled with romance and happiness and the smells of rains makes me nostalgic.

Sanjit Lamba, Assam

I love rains because it reminds me of the most beautiful days of my life, childhood. Those paper boats flowing in water, that careless dance in the rains, that going to school on cycle. It makes me child-like happy.

Diksha Kataria, Hisar

I love rains because it gives me the peace I need, it brings calmness to my heart. I love to dance, sing, cry in rains because nobody watches you, that time, I feel myself when it rains, I lose myself under the downpours without worrying that someone will be watching me.

Prashant Bharti, Rishikesh

Rain, I get the image of blue and green thinking about rains. Blue is a cool and calm color, it gives the feeling of relaxation while green is a bright energetic color related to freshness, positive attitude, etc. And apart from this I love the thundering clouds, the noise of rain and the smells of rains too.

Neha Gupta, Gurgaon

I love the smells of rain, yes that smell of mud, it just makes me happy for no apparent reasons. Also, I love getting drenched in rains that is why I keep wait for them. And well yes, it’s just the best thing one can get after summers; the drop in temperature, the romantic atmosphere around, it’s just perfect.

Sudipto Bose, Howrah

It brings me calmness, I feel stress free while getting drenched in rains, seeing rains and watching rains. Yes the traffic jams is an issue during rains but apart from few disadvantages, it’s my favorite season of the year.

Nidhi, Darbhanga

I love rains because it is the time when I forget all my worries, my sadness, open my arms and dance joyfully. I still love making paper boats and flow them in water and I have always loved jumping in water when I rains, I still do, yes silly but I love doing it.

Megha Maheshwari, Bangalore

I enjoy going out, travel and nothing suits me best than rainy seasons. Summers are too hot to travel anywhere and in winters there are problems like fog, etc which makes travelling hard so that’s’ why I like rains.

Balaji Koushik, Chennai

Ah! It’s like a gift after so hot and sweaty summers. I enjoy rains a lot while returning back from work place; it gives me the feeling of good old days. When it rains, I miss my home back at village in Kerala and the relishing tea amma used to make to prevent us from falling sick.
