We have learnt of late, that rain, even in places of plenty and in places of little, is sometimes a blessing and sometimes a curse.

Jingle – Rain is a pain when it spills upon the plain, it creates a strain; seeing all our gain wash away. Floods abound when too much rain comes a pouring down, and all our gain is flowing down the drain!

Too much rain, can be a curse while just enough a blessing. Rain is essential for seasonal growth and for our survival; so we appreciate natures burst of showers for our good. But when too much comes, we wane and complain, for we don’t like its restrictive force. It keeps me inside, and all I see are rain drops upon my window pane.
