I’m not a big fan of rains — actually, I don’t like heavy rains.

Abhishek, I’d most certainly send some drizzle your way, if I could.

Are you familiar with the Sanskrit word samskara? I am not sure if my understanding matches correctly with Hindu teachings, but here is my take — and the relation to this story. The puddle is like an unhappy experience that causes your mind to avoid similar events in the future. When you sense the puddle in your path, your mind immediately takes a detour around. The detour makes an imprint or a gully. Every time you see a puddle, you take the same detour around whatever it is that you do not want to face.

What do you think?
