There is an unusual amount of rain here. December is supposed to be a hot, dry month perfect for holidays. Instead we are receiving heavy rainfall.
I have today found a goldmine on harmonium notations. It will make me happy to try out different tunes and today’s raag is Raag Megha ~ Rain Melody
O sprinkles of raindrops
Be gentle with us
We realise not your value
Until you are no more

beautiful and wise words & special thanks for including that piece of music..
Beautiful, brief and brilliant! How we only realise its value when it’s gone.
How I loved your alliteration! Thanks Khaya!
Your words are wise and wonderful, the music a sound I have not heard before…very ethereal :D XXX
This melody is Raag Megh Malhar, originally composed by Tansen the Mughal Emperor Akbar’s favorite court musician. It is said that Tansen could make it rain with this raag and also make lamps light up with Raag Deepak. Whether that is true or not, it is certain that music in its right intensity and arrangement can bring profound effects to us and the atmosphere around us.
Thank you for your lovely comment.
Your poem is lovely and true and so well enhanced by the music.
Thank you so much. I combined both my newly found interests here.
Oh Sonya :D this is absolutely amazing! The rain melody i.e. raag megha adds such magic to your words. Beautifully done. Thank you so much for participating at Prompt Nights and for your constant love and support :D
Lots of love,
Thanks a lot Sanaa. Happy to be a part of your prompts whenever I can.
Absolutely – can only echo the comments of others – succinctly and beautifully written
Thank you. You may have “only echoed” but your echo has its own unique pitch :)
I remember this quality of music… you have to open your heart and sing just like the cloud (megha) bursts forth and releases varsha (rain)… With this quality, there spreads clean, fresh, blossoming life…joyous and beautiful!
This sort of music has a great impact on everyone. Thank you for your thoughts.

Weather, everywhere, is different nowadays.

It is so true, you only realize the value of anything when you lose it forever.
