In Pakistan every year April, May, and June are the months of scorching and sweltering heat, and people get exhausted due to the severe weather conditions. They naturally want a change and this they are granted in mid of July when the sky often gets heavily overcast and rain clouds are swept across the sky. This is due to the Southwesterly winds that blow over the Indian Ocean and bring the monsoon clouds which cause a lot of rain. The gas-pink and heat-stricken people thank god for this blessing and they feel quite refreshed and energetic after this very change in the usual weather. Southwestern winds are refreshingly cool and they bring relief to all the heat-stricken creatures.

Everybody was praying for a pleasant change in weather. Surprisingly, the wind rustled through the swaying tops of trees in a manner that was splendid and magnificent. Perhaps, nature had decided after all to please the heat-affected person with the cool, refreshing, and soothing change.
Due to the fast blowing Southwesterly wind, the humid heat was gone in no time.

When the rain stopped, I came into my street which was presenting the site of a stream because the drainage system had got locked. There were a lot of children who had been playing in the rain and would still be enjoying themselves. They were laughing, cheering, screaming, and shouting gladly and their happiness was on bounds. The new and the old all were over and feeling much relieved and quite grateful to ALLAH almighty for His benevolence. There were several scenes of jubilation all around.
“One-touch of nature makes the whole world kin“
In addition to those effects of rain on human beings, rain also had a dominating and prevailing impact on nonliving things. The rooftops of the houses for instance had got fully wet and the high walls thoroughly drenched. Moreover, low-lying areas were flooded and the public transport was having a lot of trouble while passing through them. Several vehicles had got stuck in the water. Despite all the hurdles, everybody was happy inwardly and was taking things in a very relaxed way without any kind of tension. It was a gala day.
In short, the rainy season or rainy day brings happiness and pleasure to all the creatures of ALLAH.
