Rain and melancholy share a deep bond. With every drop that falls from above, we feel drenched in the memories from the past. Bitter or sweet, every memory brings along a distinct feeling. Despite the pensive mood that the monsoon evokes, there's no doubt that it's the season of love, joy, and most importantly, the time that brings a new hope to start everything afresh.

Let these Urdu shayaris awash you with feelings you had been suppressing for long so that you can start anew.
