RAINY SEASON - VARSHA RITU
Viyad upacita meegham bhuumayaha kandal`inyoo,
navakut`aja kadamba moodinoo gandhavaahaha,
Sikhikula kala keekaaraava ramyaa vanaantaahaa,
Sukhinam asukhinam vaa, sarvam utkant`hayanti.
The poet Bhartrihari says that the rainy season excites and induces ecstasy in everybody, whether already comfortable and rejoicing or the grieving. The poet highlights the scenary of the monsoons:
1. Sky filled with dense clouds;
2. Fields filled with mushrooms;
3. Winds filled with sweet smells of just bloomed wild jasmins, and blowing gently.
4. Forest groves filled with "keekaa" sounds of peacocks.
