Longing for...

SUNSHINE!!!!!
Finally, we can see some sunshine here in Paris and I can't describe how happy I am!!! Coming from the land of abundant sunshine (India), I never imagined I would long for summer like this, having gone through the scorching heat and summers back home!

Apparently, sunshine and heat is directly proportional to the temperament of people. People who reside in tropical climates are often more friendly and warm hearted. In a way, I can relate to it coz prolonged periods of winter does make you feel depressed. How true is the proverb "Adigam amritham visham" which roughly translates to anything in excess is harmful!
I am sure I will crib about how hot, sweaty and clammy it is...in a month? ;)

Janani,
You know, I somehow think that in the midst of this 40-degree weather, I'd find the Parisian summer pleasant :)

And yes, sunshine is a beautiful thing. Really beautiful. I love the sunshine :)

Shruthi,

I agree...its definitely more pleasant here than the sweltering heat of chennai!!! :)

Sunshine is important, only problem is when it gets too much or too less...Sun God needs to learn to be balanced! ;)
