Summer season is the time when we actually tend to experience the ill-effects of global warming. The summer of 2012 till date has seen me hopping three cities with fluctuating temperature and humidity. Everyone, every other day is praying to God and also resorting to bizarre rituals just to get the glimpse of the Rain God. But suddenly something inside me asked “aren’t summers meant to be hot, that too in a tropical country like India? That voice helped me to stop fooling myself and instead of complaining venture out in order to enjoy the sun and the heat.
With the new found wisdom, I started thinking of ways to enjoy this summer to the core. The first idea that came to my mind was to give a call to my dear friend Kyra, the globe- trotting, extrovert girl always brimming with ideas. After a lot of deliberations, Kyra and I set out to experience some real summertime fun. I was ecstatic about the fact that in this closeted living, finally we finally got the chance to nourish our body with the essential Vitamin D while having some real fun.
The plan was to do nothing extraordinary, but to find and cherish memorable moments from the ordinary. Our idea was to relive the good old school days, when summer vacations were meant to be full of fun and frolic. It was that time of the year when we used to eagerly wait to connect and bond with our cousins. We were not burdened with bags, books and results and instead enjoyed activities, both indoor and outdoor, to the core as a family. With Kyra beside me, the entire plan of drenching in childhood nostalgia seemed extremely easy.
