rain.

murderous in bombay. 972 people. thousands of animals. i refuse to conform to the rule of 3.
non existant in chennai. a source of livelihood to thousands of corrupt metro water lorry drivers. back doctors. and little boys who will carry your kodams for 5 rupees.
threatening in london. will it. won't it. an overcast sky that teases like some bar dancer. showing tantalising glimpses of the blue sky beneath.

Ummm ... nice blog, lady.

Two questions.

1 - what IS a kodam?

2 - If you live in London, why do you spell 'non-existent' the American way?

Nice touch about the London skies. Almost Pink Floyd, somehow.'

Kodam is a water pot. In the old days it used to be made of clay. But nowadays the plastic variety is preferred in the water starved city of Chennai. Kodams come in many colours and sizes. But the most popular size is one which accomodates about 15 litres of water.
