Monsoon Round Two

I never thought I would ever experience the monsoon rains of India once, let alone two years in a row. It’s been a nice change in temperature from the brutal summers. This time of year traveling by train gets even more difficult. Sometimes the tracks flood, the rain blows in through the open doors, and everyone in the train is drenched.

This week I was traveling by train from Bombay to my office and the rains got really heavy. I had to take refuge at the local mall until things calmed down.

Even after the rain started to die down, there was still extensive flooding from the drain pipes. People had to jump over to cross the sidewalk.

Some people may see Monsoon as a time of inconvenience. Others see it as an opportunity.
