An original composition in raag Megh, a rainy season raga, in jhaptaal (10 beats divided 2-3-2-3) played on Indian slide guitar and tabla. The title comes from a Jamaican saying I learned from singer NL Dennis that means that a blessing is a blessing, even when delayed; this metaphor fits well with the character of Megh as a late night torrential downpour, soaking dry ground and nourishing thirsty plants, animals and souls. Mir's thunderous tabla solo midway evokes rolling, heavy dark clouds.

This was recorded in Brooklyn, NY in August 2022.
