Finally there is some respite from the heat of the Indian summer. The monsoon has arrived on time and is slowly making its way north from coastal Kerala and Karnataka. It arrived in southern parts of Kerala a little earlier than usual, but the progress has been slow.
My sources in central Kerala tell me that rains are not in full force yet, but the weather is much better than summer days, and it is pleasant to be outside under the clouds. Here in Bangalore where I live, sun has more or less disappeared behing the clouds, and there have been some heavy showers in the past week. I was away last week, visiting some of the finest monuments and temples in central Karnataka built nearly a year ago. It poured for two beautiful hours on our way back to Bangalore, giving a clear message that the monsoons are on.
Weather is inviting me to be out, and that is just what I have decided to do. I am beginning my travels again, hopefully started with a journey to the hills and taking the monsoons head on. The rains never fail to soothe my mind. What about you?
