    Rain makes my body wet
    Memory makes my eyes wet
    I can only see the rainbow
    If I put up with the rain
    Pain of memory will go away
    Like sunshine after the rain.

    Comeon Jossy Sir, 'these rains washes away Corona ...' Unfortunately it is pure water no soap in it. Corona researchers said wash hand with soap for 20 seconds. It was raining for hours no use without soap. Uuparwala bi virus ko sambaltha hey!
