Skipping work/school/college and staying in bed all day

When it rains, everything is green, the air is crisp and of course public transport is jammed. Why brave the weather when you can stay in bed an watch crappy day-time TV. The monsoons also bring with them a sea of diseases, so use words like ‘gastro’, ‘Traffic Jam’ and ‘Trains not working’ to your advantage to bunk work / school / college. Sleep like a small baby all day long :)

Reading by the window

It’s so soothing to see the rain form patterns as it patters steadily against the glass of your window. Make a hot cup and read your favorite book or magazine by the window while it pours outside.

Hot pakodas and chai

Pakodas are synonymous with monsoons. Make a batch of piping hot fritters and wash them down with a cup of masala chai. Take your pick from the traditional " aloo, onion, paneer " or get adventurous and make zucchini pakodas!
