may it pour in bangalore
we need water, the catchment areas are dry
we are tired of power cuts and the poor plants and trees will enjoy the feeling of rejuvenation that a good solid rain brings on

WHOA! That must have been the craziest rain I have seen in bangalore. This is at Bagmane Tech Park, C V Raman nagar. It was a hailstorm and the visibility was limited to just 5m I guess. Our cafeteria roof started leaking and they asked us to move out :(. Amazing is all I can say.

It was a quite heavy drizzle in Domlur ( near flyover) and now it is sunny again. What is the weather upto ? Maybe we may have another round of rain towards evening.

Reminds me of the pattern years back. It used to rain almost every day evening for some 10-20 minutes. Dust will be cleared and there is fresh air. Excellent for roaming around after work.

Man, I miss Bangalore of those days. Nostalgia setting in.

CV Raman nagar. It was really windy, a couple of big broken branches flying here and there and lovely rain. Hope it rains there too.

These arrangements are to be shown in the plan submitted for sanctioning by BBMP.
Solar heater stuff is quite funny. You will not get a elec connection until and unless you install a Solar heater. but again a loop hole. Solar comp are installing this heater as on rent for few moths. So you understand now ...

Apart from water harvesting BBPM also should look the building construction. There should be no wall to wall Building. At least 2-3 ft gaps. So that water can go inside the ground. Remove all the drain coverage that people use for parking. This the drain will be clear for flowing water.
