School Essays On Rain

My Experience on A Rainy Day

My Experience on A Rainy Day gives me sweet memories. Rains are blessings. Rains are a curse. If we could control rains and bring them on wherever we are in need or keep them off as long as we desires them, of course rains would be a blessing. But as it is, elements of nature are not under human control sometimes not to our liking. There was a day when it rained and I did not like it.


It was a holiday and I had planned to enjoy the day. I was to pay a visit to my sister at Thriuttani which is at a distance of 75 kilometers form my place. Early that morning I started from house.


Even at that hour I could see bad weather ahead. Dark, smoky clouds threatened rain. I thought I would be safe if I got into a bus. As! It was in vain.


I was getting into the blue when it started raining and it’s rained the way it has never rained. Within a few minutes anyone was drenched to the skin. None got the time to get a shelter. In a very short time the roads were flooded. The traffic came to a standstill.


Visibility was reduced to a few meters. It poured so heavily that even there headlights of the bus could not pierce the thick sheet of water pouring form the sky. Water collected more speedily than it went down the drains.


The stalls and the temporary structures for the shops at the bus stop dripped. Those inside the shops and buses were in no way better than those outside on the road who were getting wet in utter helplessness. It soon became worse.


The stools, benches, chairs and small tables kept for customers outside the shops and stalls began to float in the rising streams of rain water. It was a pity to see people running after their articles.


A man running to catch a bench fell into a drain. He might have been swept away by the strong current but the water itself threw him out. The poor man stood for a moment looking dazed at the rushing water.


It rained for four hours during which period all activities came to a standstill. When at last the rain stopped, I was hardly in shape to carry on my journey. There was hardly any time left for the return trip.


Moreover, I left home sick and longed to be at home in my comfortable bed. Hence I came home.

It was Monday morning. But there was a grey background across the horizon unlike the bright hot sunny morning that I was used to seeing in summer. Well, the black clouds heralded rain. What a relief! A rainy day would bring about some relief from the scorching heat of summer as well as it was exhilarating to experience a rainy day on a Monday morning. I was already on my way to school when there began a heavy downpour.

It began raining cats and dogs and I could see a line of vehicles including mine caught in a traffic jam. It was rejuvenating to feel the cool breeze and experience a change in the weather. Nature seemed to come alive with the rain drops falling continuously from the sky. The fresh aroma of rain was simply tantalizing. While in my car waiting for the traffic lights to turn green, I could see people scurrying about with umbrellas and raincoats. My father had gifted me a new umbrella which I was carrying along with me. I knew I would be late for school, but a rainy day was an exception. I just imagined about the amount of fun I would have in school.

Finally I reached the school gates half an hour late. There was low attendance at school; so we had continuous free periods. Our teachers told us that we could do whatever we wanted. Hurrah! No studies today. I chatted a great deal with my friends and played a good number of games. During the break time I took my chance to get wet in the rain. It was a great experience. The trees on the field in the school premises had lost their dusty look and were wearing a lively green colour. The horizon had its own touch of beauty when I looked out from the window of our classroom.

School gave over early that day. There was a bit of inconvenience too. My mother came to pick me up. It was still raining. There was water logging across the city and I enjoyed myself jumping and splashing around in the rain water. It took us a good one hour to reach home. There was some hot lunch prepared by my mother. I really enjoyed it. The amazing experience of that rainy day had a lasting impression on my mind. It reminded me of a line in a poem which read 'the rain the welcome rain'.
