A lover of rain; someone who finds joy and peace of mind during rainy days .
When I listen to the word ‘rain’ ,a big smile appears on my face.
Here is what I experienced in one rain –
It was raining ,I skipped all work ,went outside to balcony and began to enjoy it with a cup of ginger tea.
I looked around that all birds which were chattering, now took a shelter under roof of big buildings, or in nests of big trees. Water drops fallling from the end of branches making a ‘Tip-Tap’ noise .
All the dust which was there lying on leaves or house terrace was washed away.The sand smelled lovely and soothing and I felt like taking a deep breath and let that smell enter to me through nostrils and feel relaxed.
Seeing good things make everyone happy and so I became happy and brought my diary, I came and sat on my comforting sofa.
My eyes were glued in the old house next to mine, what I seen was a peacock, very beautiful , bright blue coloured neck, long feathers dancing and singing “pihu-pihuuu” .
I hid and looked at it.
That magical scene is still captured in my eyes and I realized that yes I love Rains, but an actual pluviophile is a peacock .I do not dance every time it rain ,but these birds they dance and sing in rain when they are happy , because to double happiness one must share it and they share their happiness with nature .
By then mom entered , I showed her the peacock and told her the logic that I just developed relating to pluviophiles .
To which mom told me a tale.
One Day Rain God was in trouble , A devil Ravana wanted to kill him , so Rain God took the avtaar of a peacock and mingled in a gang of peacock which was flying by that side ; to save his life .
So from that day Rain God blessed them for saving his life ,
Saying – whenever it rain peacocks will dance and sing and will be most purest birds of all and Their feathers will shine because in that my eyes will glitter .
And so from that peacocks dances and sings when it rains.
I was so happy to listen to this fact , it was mythological but was lovely to ears .
By then it became dark , after penning down everything I came in and published this post ☺.
