Ever observed how different people react to one situation??
Take the weather for instance.The summer arrives and some start planning for picnics, barbeque, trip to the beach. Then there are some who sulk & complain that the weather`s too hot for them, that they just do not have the energy to go about their routine..Some would try as much and make the most of the scorching sun. Here in India, its the season for pickles. A time when the women of the house together set about to make sun dried papads, preserves and so on.
Come rains and people start to grumble that there is water everywhere!! That it is very inconvenient to travel etc etc.. Not that the rains make everyday life a bliss. It does bring havoc in certain regions. But it is the same people who would complain of the summer heat! For some it is the time to cozy up indoors during evenings, sipping hot tea. Its during this season that some local vegetables & fruits are available and some foodies like yours truly make the best of this season.
