FROM THE EDIT ROOM

SAVE A LITTLE SOMETHING FOR A RAINY DAY “Raindrops keep falling on my head…” the catchy 1969 song sung by B.J Thomas goes perfectly well with the weather nowadays. For a few minutes, the sun peeps through the clouds and shines down on us, but before we know it, it goes back and hides behind the dark clouds, after which follows a slight drizzle or severe cloudbursts. While some absolutely detest the monsoons, others quite enjoy the pleasant weather paired with the rainfall.

‘The Canteen-

If you want to make the monsoon months more pleasurable we have a few ideas for you: why not host a monsoon party? Give a shout out to all your friends and plan a mind-blowing house party! Have gala time chatting, chomping down on some delicious food, drinking and dancing in the rain – make this monsoon a memorable one. Next up we just have two words for you – hot chocolate! Get into your comfy sweatpants and curl up under the covers with a good book and some delicious hot chocolate. If you’re more inclined towards

the sweet and savoury tastes of India, replace the hot chocolate with some piquant pakoras, samosas and garam jalebis – yum! You can also grab a piping cup of your favourite tea or coffee and just sit by the window or balcony and watch the downpour outside. The monsoons are considered to be off season for tourists. So, no matter which place you visit, you are sure to find it empty without noisy crowded vacationers crawling all over the place! So, use this time for a quick getaway to give yourself a much-needed break and come back all fresh and rejuvenated. Another thing to do this wet season is harvest rainwater. Water has now become a scarce resource and using collected rainwater to carry out activities like washing cars, watering plants and more can help in saving more fresh water – do your part to help our community and planet earth. Until next month…
