I was aware of the rains in the southern part of India but was clueless about the intensity of the rains. The onset of nature’s spell in the Southern part of India (Tamil Nadu) started in the first week of November.

I was travelling to my workplace on a regular Monday morning, being in Mumbai – everyone has to commute in one of the world’s busiest public transports – the LOCAL TRAINS! Everyday my arm would be pulled by one of the under privileged kids asking for money and food.
