Afternoon in the City.

It all drained down the lane. My energy expired the moment I stepped out. There was a strong humid atmosphere and hot winds which blew me away, not in a good sense. In a matter of seconds there was a feeling of uneasiness in me. There was a wide disparity between the mornings and the afternoons. I can live the mornings but afternoons are like hell-traps. You walk out and there is this feeling which just drains your little energy. 

Along with the severe climate, there is something more intriguing. The Power Cuts. I get busy no matter what I do online. May be it is writing blog or browsing or watching some tv series. Suddenly there is this power cut at the peak hour of the day. The blog post doesn't get saved while I'm busy writing like a professional. All when I check again, the post is stopped at the point when the power went off. Not cool, I tend to have a short-term-memory loss and sometimes long-term also. So, I can not recollect what I wrote some two hours ago. Sucks, right? I know. The whole context changes and I end up in an total different world of the topic which isn't related in a minimum sense to the topic.

So, I went out to post something. I had to take a print out and post it in Speed Post. So, I get the print out and then I find out that it needs something more. And the worst part is I saw that at the Post office before I wanted to post it completely. So I had to get back, take another print out and complete the necessary things. So the person at the Post Office tells that that Speed Post will be closed at 1400 hours and I was there at 1415 hours the second time. So, in no time I write a 250 word story about "Purpose of Joining (*the college's name*)". I totally mess up the content because I am the worst under pressure. Not that I didn't know about this earlier; just saying. After all the mess up, he is kind enough to take mine as well. Thank God, he took it. Else I'd have been literally killed by my dad. 

While in this process, my hair went from a sexy hair-duo to sluggish. The key factors being the dusty wind, humidity and all other weather factors. Also the dusty wind made it much more difficult to travel on a bike. To add to it, the super hot sun which was just burning bright and red and imparting maximum heat it can. Thanks to the cover of trees else I would have been burnt to coal. Seriously! If the temperature rises even further, I don't know in how many years Summers would be declared stay-at-home month.

So far. 
Summer Afternoon are not my kind of thing.

    2. True :)

      But, I think I still haven't felt real "humidity"! I start complaining about the heat at 20°C.
      I went to India during December two years ago, and I was constantly grumbling about the heat, I don't even want to imagine how hot is must be right now!

    3. The temperature goes to 30-35 °C these days.
      So, Imagining won't be a good idea now.

  4. There's something whimsical about afternoons in general.

    Sorry about the trolling, I realised I've missed your posts- I haven't been keeping up with things on here!
