Grey Weather

After a fortnight or so, really unbearable weather is back in Bangalore. This whole-day non-stop drizzle is so very irritating. You can't go anywhere without getting drenched. I long for sunny days, and sometimes even secretly indulge in childhood dreams involving Mary Poppins, because when you are with Mary Poppins:

Oh, it's a jolly 'oliday with Mary
Mary makes your 'eart so light!
When the day is gray and ordinary
Mary makes the sun shine bright!

Well, in absence of Mary Poppins, I guess I can only hope Bangalore authorities would do something like what these townfolks in Austria did! The town of Rattenberg is described as '10 minutes walk from sunshine' ! So, the folks are planning to use a huge mirror in a nearby sunny area to reflect sunlight onto the blighted town.

Oh, how I wish we too could get some here in this (currently godforsaken) place called Bangalore!
