Streams on my Window

The Monsoon was generous in North India in 2010 and twice during the season, I found myself travelling in a bus on National Highway 8 (between Delhi and Jaipur) during heavy downpours. As the bus moved, rain splattered on the glass window next to me and created on it what looked like streams! Owing to the almost opaque layer of moving water on the window, the scenery outside turned into background and kept changing as the bus progressed, often looking like a water colour painting. Fortunately, on both occasions I was carrying compact cameras using which some of the painterly sights were captured.
