No rain without pain!

Here, I am praising rain.
And there, a poor farmer is cursing the very same thing for the lost crop.
How can rain be both a blessing and a curse?
Are blessings even indifferent?

So when clouds are dancing (or weeping, for that matter), isn’t one person’s joy another person’s pain?
Not all the times, of course. But when taken as a socially acting phenomenon, it is definitely the case.
A similar blessing-curse perception exists for wealth, another socially acting phenomenon.
While a rich man may call wealth as a blessing, a poor man would regard absense of wealth as a curse…while in social, collective sense, wealth itself remains as blind as rain, distributing without regards to specifics of circumstances or due share, and often against the interest of the masses.
