Aandhee paachhay jo jal barkhai tihi tayraa jan bheenaaN
Last night around 11.30 pm a very strong dust storm hit Delhi uprooting trees and electric poles. Rain and lightening followed the dust storm bringing down the temperature sharply. In the morning all the trees looked clean and washed as the sun rose. It was so cool and beautiful but I felt sad for the birds that lost their nests!
