Rain

When you're lonely, it only rains three kinds.

1. Chhoti wali baarish (loosely translated, "small rain")
This is the kind of rain that is like a fine spray of mist. Even if you walk a mile in this kind of rain, you don't get wet because the raindrops are so small and light, they evaporate before they touch you. Ideal for talking a long long walk by yourself.

2. Yaadon wali baarish ("rain of memories")
This is the kind that comes down in a slant. The kind that brings back memories, of old places, of old friends, of old days. Ideal for sitting by the window with a glass of lemonade and staring at the raindrops.

3. Aansu wali baarish ("rain of tears")
This is the kind that comes down heavily in vertical lines. Ideal for just standing in the rain and crying. Till the rain becomes the tears and the tears become the rain.

It hasn't rained the third kind in a very long time.
