Where are you winter?

Usually October brings with it a slight nip in the is such a welcome change after the ever so long, never ending summers.

But what is this?

Forget about the nip in the air it feels like we are going back to beginning of is as hot and humid as May! I have been praying to weather God to have mercy on us. I think weather God heard me, yesterday was a welcome change rained. Yes!

We are all hoping this means that finally winter will set in.

Can't wait for Kolkata winter is over even before they start. Seriously, the pleasant weather lasts barely for two months. These precious two months therefore have to utilized optimally. We pack these two months with long drives, picnics, get-togethers, and whatever can be fitted in.

In Kolkata almost all important fairs happen during these two months. It is a lot of fun to move from one stall to another, shop around, sipping hot tea accompanied with freshly fried samosas from the numerous food stalls. I usually end up eating more than buying. Can't help it 'cause winter does something to my appetite, especially when I see crisp jalebis being fried, just can't stop myself. Ooh! can't wait for winter.

I can't wait to try out my new winter jacket. It just makes me happy to think about the good days ahead. No more sweating. I mean that literally!

Come on winter; don't make me wait any longer.
