Growing up in Kochi where rains are an everyday affair, my first concern was always to find creative ways to enjoy it like walking in the rain, feeling the raindrops slide down my face and believing this is what it means to be one with Nature. I always love shopping in the rain so that its a great excuse to get drenched! Of course, I get scolded for it, even now!
When I was a kid, I remember my mother teaching me to sing, "Rain rain, go away, Come again, another day" and now I teach my son the same rhyme. Watching the rains with my parents and sister is now a distant memory but it is the memory that springs to mind all the time. Relationships are always based on love, but in today's times, love itself has become an abstract concept. (Shobit whose blog is titled Mindzspeak has an interesting post on this.

Rainy days make me hungry. I am so used to munching on something hot and having some hot tea while enjoying the rains.
In the pic below taken at Hotel Abad's Pavilion Restaurant in Kochi, you will find Adi is ready to enjoy a bowl of sweet corn chicken soup. He loves the corn pieces in the soup and asks for more corn.
Guess what I had? I just couldn't resist their special fried chicken with a coleslaw like sauce. It was just awesome. The chicken tasted very crisp, subtle and so delicious that I can go into a trance just thinking about it. The sauce enhanced its flavor.
It's a rainy day. Tell me what you'd love to eat, the memories that come alive as you think of your favorite food and how the rains just bring back so many nostalgic moments into our mind.
