Amairah,
the bride, was none less than a princess. Her father had made the world take a
notice of his business even before she was born. 
The groom’s
side had equal stamp on the world’s economy. Kiyaan, the groom, was recently
featured as the Most Influential Young Businessman of the year.
An exotic
island near the equator was their choice for the destination wedding.
Warning of
rain, just two days prior to wedding, tensed up the air. Mehandi function at the
lawns was in jeopardy. The family heads from both the sides got busy in discussions.
Some calls were made.
Few
airplanes were soon heard buzzing skywards. Sirimiri followed. 
Amairah’s
heart skipped a bit. 
As if
responding to some stern orders, raindrops retreated. Gone was the rain and in
came the rush of the flush on the bride’s cheek! 
“De-Clouding” worked its wonder. Welcome to 2117AD!
— § § § § § —

It is my wishful thinking that by turn of the century, science and technology will be advanced enough to stop or divert the rains. “De-clouding”the inverse of the “Cloud seeding” would be a reality! Many floods could be averted. Many arid areas could be turned green and there would no loss of life either. And yes, the brides would not shed the tears on account of rain turning the spoil sport in their weddings!!!

Interesting idea Anagha. Especially for diversion of clouds to prevent floods. But it is my firm opinion that the more we meddle with nature, the higher the disaster. We invent things to improve our lives, then invent more things to fix what we screwed up in the first place

    100% with you on this thought Namratha. Going by careless attitude of our generation and the previous few, its going to be the requirement of the day. Much needs to be done to avert catastrophes naturally. Thank you very much for adding to the discussion on this topic.
