Dream Big! Think Big!! Achieve the Biggest!!!

I finished reading an article today in India Today magazine on how the Rural India was fairing better than the Urban India in all aspects. Several aspects were taken into account in the article that showed how the Rural India faired well and why. From GDP and per capita income to all the sectors that have contributed towards the growth of Rural India, everything had been presented well in the article with statistics.

There is something about the rain!!

There is something about the rain,
The freshness it brings to every object aroundThe smell of wet sand

The perspiration that doesn't

There is something about the rain
that makes you forget your pain.

that strikes you when it rains,
Reminding you of people,
places, food and what not,
Yet you choose to forget those
And enjoy the present moment
embracing the rain
There is something about the rain
that makes you forget your pain.
