Update: Anantha sent me photos of yesterday’s rainbow. Photo courtesy: Arvind Ram

Last evening, I was in the bus, lying back, looking at the sky, when suddenly, the most beautiful, most vivid rainbow I’ve ever seen appeared. I wanted to turn around and tell people, Look out of the window. But then I figured, if they were meant to see it, they would. I smiled, thinking of other people to whom the rainbow afforded respite. And then without warning, the sun started breaking out of the clouds and I watched the rainbow grow fainter, until it disappeared.

I was walking home, thinking of this, when I noticed everything around me was suffused with a warm golden light. Reflexively, I hurried home and up to my terrace with my camera. It was an amazing sight. I saw the most glorious sunset of my life, complete with rainbow and colours you wouldn’t believe possible unless you see them. And the sky! I’ve never seen a sky or sunset so breathtaking in Chennai, even at Elliot’s. 🙂

    The Rainbow last evening was awesome. Could easily distinguish the colours even with my silly eye-sight. It was lovely to be sipping cool lemon juice while watching the Rainbow. Didn’t see the rainbow the last evening. Noticed the orangish golden though, Wonderful. To steal your word(s).. Love!! 😛

    I am really unlucky. The pic in the post does not display for me. Looks like it points to a gmail account 😦
