Its dust in the wind

Last month we visited our sister’s family at Jind .  Okay, I'm noticing a weird thing about dust in Jind city which is very wet area as the water level is very high here. I remember when we were doing our research work in 1984 under the AICRP project we noticed the floors of all the houses were oozing out water like osmosis. So I was surprised doing my niece dusting , firstly I didn’t care as she is very obsessive about cleaning. But when I noticed my sister doing dusting in the kitchen then I looked into it deeply. Actually in Haryana, ‘it is somehow everywhere.  No matter how much I dust the furniture in our place, I will turn around and just 2 hours later there is a thin layer of dust.  And if I wait just 2 or 3 days, it turns into a thick layer of dust.  Where does it all come from?’ my sister murmured.

 I thought it was just my own little problem, but when I mentioned it a few people here(in Jind) instead of so much marshy , my sis also told me about their losing battle with dust.  Some people swear that the dust starts to build just an hour after they finish dusting.  And I believe them.
I'm starting to suspect the pollen.  Jind is well known for its high pollen count.  Some days you can walk down the street and see a thin layer of pollen coating the parked cars.  And you can hear people sneezing and snuffling as the pollen works its way into everyone's eyes, noses, and lungs.  And I'm guessing it is working its way through all my sister’s  open windows, through her sheer curtains, and proceeding directly to pretty much every surface in their place.


I'd write more, but I've got dusting to do with my sister as she is suffering from headache, and my niece is away in Hospital, she is physiotherapist in  Jind civil Hospital, she studied all her degrees residing with me itself at Hisar.
