Summer Rainbows in Madras !!!
I was late for my usual morning run. I started at 6.00AM from Velachery MRTS railway station, making my way along the newly laid 200ft road.
That road is an early morning walkers/joggers paradise. A 3km loop. Mild traffic, and lots of fellow walkers/joggers for company.
There was a slight drizzle before I started, and I could see traces of dark clouds along the horizon.
On my way back, at around 6.30AM or so, there were a few more rain drops. Pit patter they splashed on the road and stopped.
On an instinct, I turned and looked back skywards. Lo and behold, there it was. Not one, but two rainbows which I could see completely. Two brilliant semi-circular arches, in full color and splendor. What a magnificent sight. Nature at its best.
PS: I do not recollect seeing rains in summer in Madras, let alone rainbows. Something's wrong with the weather.
