I know, the rains have barely begin in some parts of the country to call it mid-monsoon. But in Karnataka, it is almost past the halfway mark already. I am in the mood for rainy days and can't stop writing about it. In the hilly and forested regions of the state, it has been raining heavily for the entire month of July. There is a bit of let up in the last week, and the intensity of rains has reduced.
I spent a few days in malnad area in the western ghats last week, which has been seeing a lot of rain in the last month. The place where I went to is very close to Jog Falls, the highest waterfall in the country.
The countryside in these parts looks so good after the rain has fallen, I found it hard to return. It is cloudy and pleasant, and the temperatures are just perfect. The greenery is lush, the lakes are full and there is lot of life and activity in the nature. Paddy fields have young saplings that form a carpet of green on the earth surface. Streams are full with water. It can't get more beautiful.
I hope I can use the next one month to do some travelling, when the rain continues to bless these parts. Watch this space for updates.

Oh, I do envy you your rains. Here in Delhi, we feel absolutely parched - woe to Global Warming. The beautiful pic is a cools the eye (literally!).
