Chili veggie Soup

When the sky turns grey and the sun hides behind the clouds, when lightning flaunts
its electric white hue and thunder splits our ears, we know whats coming next, pouring rain.

The first thing that strikes our mind at that moment is to rush to the kitchen and make ourselves a cup of tea or any snacks or hot bowl of soup, to keep us company as we sit in the balcony and watch the torrents come down. hence, Doha has started burning with its hot summer, there's nothing to enjoy in this time in this country actually. Even we cant enjoy rains too here, might be for 2-3 days only. just missing India for many many reasons, As Covid-19 made all of us deep down frustrating too. but anyways we all miss our home back to India. waiting to things settled and meet my family as soon as possible.
