What is the secret behind the good smell after it rains? What makes rain smell so good? when we were children we used to play outside during and after the rain. We noticed that the soil gives a good smelling scent. It is a very pleasant nice aroma. The whole world is happy and optimistic when it rains. Is there any scientific background about it? Superstition may play a role here. I heard that our ancestors used to expect a profitable season after it rains.
Rain is symbol of joy, pleasure.We can even feel the rhythm of rain even with close eyes.Rain wipe out the dirt of our hearts and then we starts to see everything with clean heart.:)
Main samajgiya aap sota manta, Anum. I thought that you were going to sleep and that you would comment in the morning, I mean today. Anyway, it was early hours of the morning and you managed to write those sweet words about the rain.
The rain symbolizes joy, pleasure, I will add also, new hopes. Morally, it removes the dirt of our heart. I like that sentence a lot. (The rain wipes out the dirt of our hearts ..) We need clean hearts these days, don't we Anum? Thanks, Anum for your nice words.
Shookrun ya Ahmed2015! Educational and I am going to add that to my library. So, the sweet pleasant aroma comes from that organic compound which it is called geosmin. I am just a layman in this field. I thought that it comes from the rain itself.
That was really helpful and it gives us more details about the strong nice aroma that comes after it rains. Thank you Ahmed2015 for you useful explanation about that smell.
Tamam ya Ahmed2015! Science always has to say its word. I forgot to ask, the rain hits the soil and from there that geosmin goes up and the wind brings it to our nostrils, is that it, Ahmed? Thanks again.
Subhana Allah, ya Ahmed! Some bacteria are useful for our health, and some bacteria plays a great role in giving us that sweet odor.
Oops, Ahmed, I guess this is the same comment as before.
A repetition of the comment.
