When it rains all day long, we call it a rainy day. In such a day, the sky remains cloudy. The sun is not seen at all. The day looks dull and gloomy. Sometimes it rains heavily and sometimes it drizzles. Often there are flashes of lightning and roars of thunder in the sky. Birds are hardly seen to fly. They keep standing on the branches of trees. Cattle keep standing on their sheds. In such a day people have to remain indoors. The roads become almost muddy and desolate. One cannot move from one place to another easily. One does not generally come out without compulsion. The poor suffer much. They cannot go out to earn their daily bread. It is a great joy to the students. Because classes are not held that day. Some people then spend time in gossiping, playing at, singing or hearing songs. After all, a rainy day gives us both joy and sorrow. It comes to different classes of people in different ways. A rainy day shakes our mind. It reminds our childhood. Sometimes we become affectionate to remember our childhood.
