Rain drops

  Old man (watchman) calls out hurriedly "come come, we have to put the cashews in the storeroom; bring the sacks.."
  Surprised, i walk out of the house; it is drizzling! Yes.
  Up with the solar lamp we start shoving the cashews in tin containers to bring down the dried cashew into the storeroom - all the while little tickling drops cooling the air (SMILE)
  The monsoon in kerala is predicted for the 26th May (The Hindu says)l what happens is that at times it over spills past the Western Ghats and if we are lucky we get rain.
  It has been hot and stuffy today; seeing the dark clouds advancing is refreshing!
  We were collecting cashew today uptil 12 o'clock. My god it is hot at 11am! bad idea..
  Taking care of 17 acres of land with cashews; i keep telling the workers to do the whole circle everyday but with the elections and absence, pending cashew collecting has made us slow down..
  I am leaving for Canada in a few days; so i figured that if the workers could reassure me that they got their act together (without me helping) before i leave then i can be at peace!
  "pappum" (lets see in tamil)
  will it actually rain? after all the hectic bustling cashew collecting from the roof to the storeroom. ha ha..
