    This year the rains have been a little different. We had good rains in June and July. But, in August, it is was if the rains played musical chairs with us. It rained for a whole week, and then there was no rain for a week. For the last three weeks, we in Coastal Karnataka have not been having good rains. However we have been reading in the newspapers that many large dams in our state have almost completely filled up.

    There is a large lake in our place. There are inlets in different places for the water from surrounding areas to flow into reservoir. By September the lake fills to the brim. This year, by the end of August, water had reached the brim but now the level has gone down. We just hope the rains come again. Wonder what nature’s wish is.

    “It should be raining,
    But rains have deserted us.
    The heart fills with dread.
    What is life without water?
    Thinking leads to a nightmare.”

    Dear @LakshmiKMBhat ,
    Seasonal rains are playing hide and seek with schedules . Either it rains too heavily out of season or it doesnot rain in season . Or , there are record rains when not expected,like the august rain in Bengaluru . Anyway , Bengaluru is never prepared well to cope with rains , so there is always flooding even if a little above normal downpour .

    We mess with Nature . So Nature will play games with us . Who knows what plans she has for coastal region !

    Dear Lakshmi,
    In fact Karnataka people are lucky. Sometimes get rains both from southwest monsoon and northeast monsoon also.
    We at Chennai daily looking at the sky for rain.

    @PushpavalliSrinivasan
    (With the kind permission of @LakshmiKMBhat )
    For almost a month now, I have been suffering from acute neck pain. I went to consult a neck pain specialist in Adyar. There were some half a dozen patients there all having their heads cradled in their palms. When it was my turn to see the Doctor, he had one look at me and asked 'Have you been looking at the sky for rain?' I was amazed and told him that it was my practice for the last six months. He scribbled something on his letter pad and gave it to me. I took it to the nearest medical shop and gave it to him. He had one look at it and gave it back to me saying he was not a travel agent. 'The Doctor has suggested a month long stay in Karnataka for your neck pain' he told me grinning!

    :hello:Namasthey ji. I'm a toddler IL'ite. the quoted poem is befitting the sorrows of the moment or season. but I share your bottom-line quote There is not enough darkness in the world to extinguish the light of a small candle.'let us pray and remain as usual optimistic - the showers steadily replenish the lake till the end of rainy season and so there would be no dry taps. Regards. God Bless us all.
