The color of monsoon

There are those moments, that one single moment which you remember. I have a terrible memory but then there are these triggers that suddenly light up a part and I am taken back.
I was looking at some random things on Pinterest and then suddenly I see this poster of Beauty and the Beast (the Disney movie). You would think it would remind me of a love story but what it reminded me of was sitting in the Block 13 balcony in the monsoons. I would sit there for minutes and hours watching cars passing by. In the monsoon the whole city would be a shade of blue. There would be a slight smog/fog (I don't know what to call it) that made the city a bit hazy when you looked from the balcony. To tell you the truth I don't remember what I used to think of but I remember the colour. And the Beauty and the Beast poster had the same shade. Something so comforting.
