Great Luko 2007-08-28 8:53

Top right image would have been an instant Fav for me, Animesh, as you may realize that my melancholic mood will always be biased towards rainy days and umbrellas.
In the three you've taken from the same vantage point, what I like at first hand is the old days feeling : there's a sort of agfa paper "classic" print feel, with a light grey array and soft edges, viewed through the curtain of the rain.

Monsoon should have been terrible in India, probably including Kolkata, this year from the little I've heard (in portuguese) on a brasilian channel broadcasted though Mozambique TV. In a way I was quite glad I skipped India this summer, although I sometimes had terrible envies of dosa and chai after a continuous diet of grilled fish and kassava.

Default To Luko: Rain

Yes, I have that melancholy streak for rainy days too...I had been missing it here in SD, and so I had my fill in Calcutta this last few weeks.

Monsoon flooding in Bangladesh and also in Bihar and some other places in India were quite bad this year. But not so bad in West Bengal.

Next time you are in the South, try the 'soup' called 'Rasam'...oh my! my mouth waters at the and sour, unparalleled on the tongue
