Moonsoon gives lives to this country, especially when it rains for the very first time of year. It is the scent of rain, the earthly smell that gives you a chance to breathe again. It is rain that makes everything lively. Living in the concrete jungle, in the city of Dhaka, one can hardly get that earthly feelings, but you cannot stop the young ones to get rain-soaked. They get out in the rain in wherever place they can. He is Akash, and when it rains, he overcomes all the hurdles around him to get socked. That afternoon it was raining heavily, and I went near my window to see the rain, and that’s when I saw him. I took my camera and went downstairs. Seeing the camera he hid at first, like a rain-soaked butterfly, but it wouldn’t take him long to become lively again in the middle of falling rain.
