Childhood Revisited

I was near the main gate of my house just trying to open it up. The noise thus made was enough to let someone' sharp ears make all the required jiggle. Even before I managed to enter and in turn close the door, there was a sweet chirping sound. I turned to find her standing near the entrance to my living room. I could see an all happy face and eager eyes.

Mish was back after a 15 day visit to her maternal grandparents. Tough days for me to go by without her in the house; especially not getting the usual welcome as I come back home from office. So while she was back this Sunday morning, it was all "papa aao".. "papa come" and "aye papa" all through the day. That however didn't stop her from noticing that the rain started to fall. Couldn't blame her as after quite a few days it was raining well so the fall sound was enough to be noticed even while we were inside the house.

Not that the rain wasn't welcomed by me; its been a hell lot of wait for proper monsoon this year; but I was just about waiting for my little princess to get started to pull me and ask for a rain bath. The rain somehow makes her go ga-ga over the weather. She is all set to go out there and enjoy the fall. And I knew it was hard to make her stop; no matter what. That didn't stop me from trying a futile way to do the impossible. My mother was quick to notice that it was in vain. I asked why and "I never succeeded anyway...".

It was true, no matter what it was hard to stop me being away from the rain as far as I can remember. As a child (not as small as her) I would cycle around my society for a good  30-40 min as it rained; whenever it rained. I just couldn't stop myself getting under the fall. Not a choice.. at all !! So it was pretty evident that my daughter was just as rigid to go out there and have fun. On second thought I think I had enough of a resistance from myself and it was time. Childhood revisited !!

Not that it was the only occasion, but I will leave the rest for some other time maybe. For the moment it was just the rainfall and a naughty kid to handle. Enjoy the pic :)
