One understands the true meaning of “heat” when you are also fasting. Each and every sweat breaking individual could be seen with their hands raised high, praying to Allah to reduce this deadly heat specially the poor weather-ridden Karachiites.
Our weather forecast departments have become a joke too, whose word no one believes to be true. However surprisingly this time they decided to prove us wrong and as per the reports relayed yesterday, it was dark and rainy-ish earlier at the start of the day today.
I had woken up with a sulky mood, which is often the case in Ramzan due to oh-so-many sleep gaps but as soon as I heard the first slight roar of thunder, the mood tilted to the brighter side & then it began.. the long awaited thunderous rain.
It felt as if the God of thunder, Thor & his rival, Loki were having a serious disagreement up there! ( haha just kidding)
But honestly, the love between the sky and earth could then be seen frivolously as the heavy drops came down in a super speed to kiss the thirsty ground and earthly nature.
Every face was gleaming, Every flora was expressing its happiness by exuding the lovely green shade. The profound prayers of karachiites were heard finally
The only thing missing throughout the experience were Pakoras, since majority of the people were fasting.. it was quite difficult to resist the craving for a hot cup of tea with freshly fried Pakoras and not to forget, the hari chatni. Well it won’t be a matter of a few hours when we can enjoy these delights too.
All in all, my observation says that people tend to be happier, stress free, much polite & livelier when it rains hence I pray we karachiites would get more of this weather to keep our heads and moods fixed for some time. Agree?
