The week began with hazy skies that turned ominous as the hours passed
Ockhi the cyclone that had wreaked havoc in Kerala , was inching its way up the coast and Mumbai was a likely target .
On Tuesday morning I woke up to a grey and gloomy sky with poor visibility. The whole day we sat waiting for the storm to break and looked out at the dark and silent city . Schools and colleges were shut, the trains were running slow and several offices in town shut early.
“Don’t worry,” my chicken seller assured me when I was getting ready to stock up on eggs and bread, “it will soon pass “.
I wondered how he knew with certainty but realised that he had a satellite picture that was doing the rounds on WhatsApp.
And the sun came out in Mumbai’s sky again !
Enjoy the sunshine this weekend .
