    It has been raining and raining. Usually our monsoon season starts in June. But this year we just had three or four days of rain in June. We were all so worried. We depend so much on the rains. We just cannot imagine life without rains.

    From the beginning of July we have been having good rains. In fact there has been so much rainfall that rivers are overflowing and dam reservoirs are getting filled to their capacity. Everyone is happy because the fear of droughts is terrible. Even now, when we are getting excess rain , many places in the northern parts of our state are deficit rainfall.

    This happiness is one side of the coin.
    The other side is all the misery and trouble faced by the people. So many people living by the river sides and their house being washed away. Fields and crops being destroyed. After the rains recede people will have to start all over again. How to start and where to start? The government is very quick in announcing relief but how much will really reach the people who need it most?
    Ultimately people have to depend on themselves .

    Life goes on, years go by, the same things are repeated.
    I suppose this is Nature’s Law – to give with one hand and take away with the other.
