A drop of sunshine

And another cactus blooms with a short lived bright yellow flower.


The flower bloomed only for a few hours, however there are two more buds in the waiting.


Monsoons hit Kerala

As a nation that depends on the Monsoons for most of its water requirements, the onset of the Monsoons are a much awaited event and its progressĀ is tracked with religious fervor in India. This year amidst conflicting predictions from the Indian Meteorological Department and Skymet; and anxiety over El Nino effecting the volume of rainfall, the monsoons arrived in Kerala, the first coastline it hits, a few days earlier than its traditional due date of 1st June, much to the joy of all!!


Monsoons arrive with a magic wand … transforming even the mundane into things of beauty



So looks like the bud on the right is flirting with the bloom and asking it for a dance in the rain
