So my wishes were answered last night as it rained quite heavily and there was lots of thunder & lightning. The balcony of my apartment was completely wet and I almost slipped there as I went there in the morning. I missed most of it, enclosed as I am in my office building and inside my training room. When I went to the open air canteen (well we have a huge roof but it is not enclosed) at around 8:30, it wasn’t raining yet.
But a little after midnite it started raining and pouring like so heavily that the roads were filled with water in some places. Luckily it didn’t rain for too long. But it is a welcome sign of things weatherwise.
I had to go all the way to Vypeen before reaching home. For a guy whose work got over at 1 am, I reached home only by 3 am. The reason being that everyone else in the cab were dropped at their residence first since they live closer to the office but there was this one girl who lived in Vypeen. We have to ensure that there is atleast one guy (other than the contracted cab driver) from the office left in the cabs if there is a lady still to be dropped back to her home. And he has to see to it that the girl reached home safely. Being the only male left, I had to accompany her till her house and then get dropped back to my place, which is closer to the office than her place! Anyway that is to be expected. But I was so tired & sleepy by the time I reached home.
But it wasn’t a total waste of time; she was good company & very knowledgeable and we chatted quite a bit about her project (slightly different from the one I am in) and I got to know a lot about the issues that they are facing.
