We feel so special if we are good at sports. And there is another unknown charm in playing sports when we are not good at it. I seek charm in later category.
I was never a sport person while in school. I little regret for why I never played any games. But I am trying my best in college though quite old to learn.
I never felt so special like yesterday. It was like only me. No other person – I, me and myself. I played like I was the only one playing there. I felt happy when everybody giggled looking at me. I less care that they make fun of me – but it give immense pleasure when you become the reason for another’s laughter. It doesn’t mean my friends discourage me – had there been no supportive friends like I have now I wouldn’t have made myself to play ground. They encourage me, teach me and above all they make me play (I only know how badly I play haha).
11.04.2015: We were expecting it to rain as dark clouds hovered over us. It was just 5.30 pm but it became so dark. Wind blew so hard that small pebbles struck us. And frequent flashes of lightening made me feel like I was somewhere shooting for horror movie. I was afraid wind would blow us off or it may bring something that would injure us. Not to forget, I have phobia of thunder and lightning. But it didn’t stop us from playing. We kept playing and more fun sprout when ball got carried by wind and no one scored so easily.
We were playing basketball.
Then, it poured. Heaviest rainfall I ever observed in Raichur since I came here in 2011. And wind made it worst. But we kept playing. We got drenched from top to bottom. It became so hard that I had to gasp for the air to breathe as rain became so intense. Within no time, our play ground became the swimming pool – where we couldn’t bounce the ball. Splash!!! And ball slipped out of our hand. I rejoiced the moment. I felt relieved. I felt relaxed. I felt like I was cleansed. It was the complete and euphoric moment. No pain, no dream, nothing...complete emptiness. I heard nothing, just the giggles of my friends and screaming on top of their voice – jumping and rejoicing the moment to the fullest. It had been so long that I never played in rain but yesterday I did it. It also brought along the memories of my childhood making me feel little nostalgic. Those were the days of innocence – sans jealousy, sans love, sans hatred, sans sadness...
That was it. That is the true happiness.

PS: I couldn’t capture any photos yesterday as it was raining heavily.
