Cloudy outside? “Louis Armstrong’s What a Wonderful World, as I like the possibility of rain that a cloudy day brings.”

When it’s drizzling... “Aaj Jaane Ki Zid Na Karo by Farida Khanum. Drizzling rain always fills me with a kind of yearning so this is the perfect song.”

On days with downpours: “Sreevalsan Menon’s rendition of Swathi Thirunal Padam Kanthanodu in Neelambari. Neelambari is my favourite raga and this particular composition fills me with happiness.”

Cloudy outside?“The Fall – Rhye. It has the perfect feeling of an overcast. I hear it and want to look out of a window, staring into nothing.”

When it’s drizzling... Mi Negrita – Devendra Banhart. It merges perfectly with the sound of falling rain and goes well with a cup of coffee.”

On days with downpours:Mad Rush by Philip Glass. I am yet to hear anything more perfect for rain, trust me!”
