It rained cats & dogs and I was caught unawares in knee-deep water. The only thing Kolkata's drainage system manages to drain is our enthusiasm to live!

You'll miss the rain when you stop living in Calcutta. Nowhere else do you get the cool breeze and the build-up to the rain. NOwhere else do you get the fragrance of wet-earth the way you do here...

In places it doesn't rain. In places it rains all the time. In places it gets too cold when it rains; and in places even rain can't bring the heat down. But nowhere have I seen it rain the way it does in Calcutta. the slush, the mud, the water notwithstanding.
