जुलाई का महीना था । अत्यधिक गर्मी और घुटन थी । मैं स्कूल के लिए चल पड़ा । अचानक आकाश में बादल छा गये । शीतल हवा बहने लगी । सूरज घने बादलों में छिप गया । बादल गरजे , और बिजली चमकने लगी । झमाझम पानी बरसने लगा । सड़कों पर पानी ही पानी दिखाई पड़ने लगा । छोटे बच्चे बरसात का आनन्द ले रहे थे । एक घण्टे बाद बारिश रुकी । मैं पूरी तरह भीग गया था । जब मैं स्कूल पहुँचा तो पता चला कि प्रधानाचार्य महोदय ने वर्षा – दिवस की घोषणा कर दी थी ।

Ans. It was the month of July. It was unbearable heat and suffocation. I set out for school. Suddenly the sky was covered with clouds. Sweet breeze begun to blow. The sun hid in the dense clouds. Clouds roared and it began to thunder. It began to rain drizzly. There was nothing but water on the roads Little children were enjoying the rain. The rain stopped after a minute. I was totally got wet. When I reached school it was heard that the Head Master had declared it as rainy day.
