Ever seen the typical Bollywood movies? Where the hero is riding a cool sports bike, the rain whipping down and the heroine sitting pillion, lets her hair loose, allowing her chunni to fly in the wing (O! how sensuous) , she feels the water pouring down on her face, tasting it with her lips...and the scene ends with a hug. And it turns out to be the most romantic of the scenes in the movie and you sit there, chewing gum, imagining - I wish....

Welcome to the real world, where life is not a drama. It was a bright evening, I was on my way to the town on my trusty steed, my aviator, when it started raining cats and dogs ( make that, big cats and big dogs! ). I immediately parked my scooter, grabbed my raincoat and hopped around to get into it in the pouring rain, when these images crossed my mind. Ah! The irony of life. Now, I was back on my scooter trying to sing two lines (in imitation of our dear Hindi movies), but all that you would hear is a gargle :p , you see there was too much water entering my mouth. So, I concentrated on the road, just when I realised I seem to be smiling all the while. My lips curved upwards and eyes squinting hard in an effort to fight that rain and a desperate attempt to see the road which was now a pool of water. My face in imitation of a clown, permanently smiling. The rain no longer felt good, forget being romantic, whipping down hard, it felt like a thousand slaps on the face.

I would say, try that with your girlfriend, and all that she would shout is, "Get home fast, you fool! This is far from romantic!!".

    hahahah...movies.... well... i wonder if all those movies were practical, we would be getting thousands of bikes with girls singing and all that stuff... :) but in the rain the first thing on a bike rider mind is to reach home fast and safe :)

    Hmm... Depends on the mood and the condition of the roads of course..

    There have been many instances, such as the first rain of the season, or rains in the middle of the summer, When I have taken my bike and gone out.. for no reason other then enjoying the rains.

    (alone of course, driving in the rains with a pillion baba re baba... Dangerous)

    Hmmm.. As for the girl friend:

    A brave man likes the feel of nature on his face.

    But yeah, a wise girlfriend has enough sense to make him get out of the rain!
