The Rain Girl

“You will hear that she has left the country, that there was a gift she wanted you to have, but it is lost before it reaches you. Late one night the telephone will sing, and a voice that might be hers will say something that you cannot interpret before the connection crackles and is broken.

Several years later, from a taxi, you will see someone in a doorway who looks like her, but she will be gone by the time you persuade the driver to stop. You will never see her again.

Whenever it rains you will think of her”—– ( Neil Gaiman,”Fragile Things: Short Fiction and Wonders”)

(The beauty and poignancy of the scene etched by the author finds empathy in this beautiful rendition of Raag Megh by the legendary Pandit Nikhil Banerjee.http://youtu.be/qynqwbamu7Ehttp://youtu.be/qynqwbamu7E)

  1. I have dreamed of that song. In those dreams … I had dominion over the nature of all that was real.
