As goes the saying "one man's meat is anotherman's poison," rain, too, is longed for andwelcomed by some and annoyed by others.
After a long time of drought, farmers, ploughing inthe hot sun, thoroughly wet, now and then look upat the sky searching for signs of dark, heavy clouds. When they are attacked by down-pour, they, thoroughly wet too, still look at their crops and vegetables in the fields, their eyes lit upwith delight.
In contrast, city dwellers tend to think of rain as their great t rouble. If the rain continues justa couple of days, they pray for a fine day though a week ago they were utterly annoyed by theinconvenience of water shor tage. Young people, as is often the case, curse the rainyweather for spoiling their beautiful dresses and smart suits as well as their merry-making andluxurious dates without giving a slight thought to the danger of empty reservoirs.
Everything has its advantages and disadvantages. Rain can refresh all living things on earth, but can also mar everything on earth. It supports the lives of many, but sometimes deprivesmany of their lives. Floods, one of the natural calamities, destroy thousands of homes everyyear.
From the above discussion, we can learn how to look at things dialectically from aphilosophical point of view.
