While the rains have brought relief to some, it has also brought chaos to others. The rains have now spread across the length and breadth of the entire country. As the clouds come rolling in, blocking the sun, a hush sweeps through the regions, holding its breath. A clap of thunder, a bolt of lightning, and Mother Nature lets loose her tears- tears that flow copiously across our land.

And as the rains fall on our land, it creates some dazzling sights for all to admire.
