Here comes the Rain.

Weeding season has begun,

For the meadows to lie upon.

Wild cherries bloom with rustic fun

At daylight the beauty gets brightened by the Sun.

With the onset of dusk

The rain washes away the beauty and all its musk.

Life is not yet quenched...

Life calls thee ... oh Rain ... oh Rain!

Zonkeyed by the nectar of Bacchus.

The deities of Shangri-La,

Awoke from your slumber

For the weeding season has just begun

Far in the West

Awoke Oh, Muse from the holy springs.

To the North

Wake up, Shamans of Animism.

Let there be Rain

The crops in the field lie in Vain.

Let there be Rain

Life for instance tends to be Maim.

Chimal, Rhododendron in the West

Berserk and enigmatic it seems.

To the south lies Tendong and Samdruptse’s nest

And deep within a ray of Hope gleams.

Hope, a melancholic hope of the South.

The path leading northwards rustle

Veil covers the beauty and couth,

Anger, hope, expectation adjacently placed

Yet thou seem too loath.

Oh shaman, muse of the holy spring

Your Occult bestowed by the God’s.

Let there be Rain that shall zing.

Enchant Oh, deities

Encircle the clouds...

Recite Oh, Shaman,

Till the anger, pain within the cloud sprouts...

Let the enchantment gain momentum...!

Thunder and lightning emanates

the pain felt...

Here comes the rain

The melancholic rain

Giving might to Teesta, Rangit.

Sweeping away the Rustic rustle,

Quenching the thirst of every life.

Rain... Ablaze rain,

Here it comes

Defining pain, hope, expectations...

Here comes the rain.

Who can describe what taste is?

- let me -
The time is 2:14 pm , 7th May 2011.

Well, right now I am standing with one of my friend Chawkumoo, in the vehicle stand in Gangtok. The vehicles horn, the hodge podge of homo sapiens ... too crowded. The smell of Public Toilet and besides was a strange,conventional smell coming from one of the open Canteen of the Taxi stand. We saw a group of people sitting on a half erected concrete wall, everyone's face is filled with delight, hunger and greed. There he is ... "Bhaiyaa", busy making Sikkimese traditional food known as "Sya - Faley". The people's queue some are raising their hands... they have been waiting, they have the Money the mouth tends to be watery.

He puts Falley into the Hot Oil, cooks for about 5-10 minutes and the hot "Faley"is seen chewed by the mouth of the Hungry Jacks. They chew ... it's hot, it's damn tasty, the chilli pickle gives much more taste to the mouth watery "Sya - Faley". They eat, still they are eating. One goes the other person is grabbed upon by the aura of the mysterious place. The nearby areas has good hotels but still Bhaiya's Open shop attracts more people rather than the attractive hotels and shops.

What attracts the people, the people are attracted to an Open shop, Unhygenic Shop knowingly. Strange... The Aura !

Reference :-
1. Sya - Meat , Faley - Dough which is made to cover the inner ingredients.
2. Bhaiya - Brother in Hindi.
