After a long time of hot and dry weather, the first rain of the season creates an exquisite fragrance in the air - an earthy scent that permeates around us, refreshing our minds and uplifting our spirits. I love that amazingly wonderful sweet scent. Did you know that this elegant fragrance has an interesting name too? It's called "Petrichor"; a word derived from Greek language, i.e. "Petra" meaning ‘stone’, while "Ichor" is the fluid that flows in the veins of the Gods - per Greek mythology. Petrichor is surely a divine perfume that must be a gift from Supreme Power. If my life were a fragrance, I would like her to smell like Petrichor.

After the bare requisites of living and reproducing, man wants most to leave some record of himself, a proof, perhaps, that he has really existed. He leaves his proof on wood, on stone, or on the lives of other people. This deep desire exists in everyone, from the boy who scribbles on a wall to the Buddha who etches his image in the race mind. Life is so unreal. I think that we seriously doubt that we exist and go about trying to prove that we do.

After the long period of hot and dry weather, comes the first rain shower of the season creating an exquisite eloquent fragrance in the air - an earthy sweet smell that permeates and floats all around us, refreshing our minds and rejuvenating our lives. I love that powerful seductive scent - emanating from the long awaited union of soft and gentle rain drops with dry thirsty ground, and instigating an instantaneous intimacy in the air. Interestingly, this elegant enchanting fragrance has a name too. It's called "Petrichor"; a composite word derived from Greek language - comprising "Petra" meaning ‘the stone’, and "Ichor" meaning 'the fluid that flows in the veins of the Gods' as per Greek mythology. In my view, Petrichor is surely a divine perfume that must be a gift from Supreme Power. If my life were a fragrance, I would surely like her to smell like Petrichor.
