Celebrating Rain with platter of Nectarine Coconut Pound Cake and Ginger Tea

Rain always reminds me of sizzling hot onion fritters with steaming cup of  hot tea
Rain always reminds me of the small paper boats which we used to float during our childhood days
Rain always reminds me of the rainy day due to which our school had to be closed
Rain always reminds me of the Shri Krishna Janmashtami stories which Dadi used to tell us,
Rain always reminds of the chicken roll sold at commercial street in bangalore and my college freinds
Rain always reminds me of roasted bhutta sold on the streets of Delhi
Rain always reminds me of the beautiful nos like Rimjhim rimjhim and ,.
Rain always,...
