Third consecutive day, yesterday we had another light spell of rain.
OT - Hope there's no rain today - there's an IPL match featuring RCB this evening

Good showers accompanied by thunder and lightning in Rajajinagar. Grossly needed too. Summer this time has become unbearable.

If there were more trees, heat wouldn't have been felt. But it's opposite, no trees & full concrete buildings which don't contribute anything to nature & people start blaming for various reasons.

Although rain does bring down temperatures, if it doesn't, then the lack of rain & deforestation of trees will lead to heat buildup.

Bangalore is spoiling every hour, not year. Once known for its excellent climate & greenery is now heading towards hell. Cutting trees & building those useless not fully occupied Apartments/Flats & those Big Buildings won't help.

As a Nature lover, my above words might sound offensive for some. Sorry, I can't do anything for that.

Off Topic, but this is story of most Indian Cities. Recently, Vadodara was given the tag of "Smart City". Then came down the removal of encroachments and also some road widening took place.

In the process of doing so, lots of trees were cut. These were the trees that some people say, were picked up by Royal Family of Vadodara according to soil and climatic conditions.
Also, on the way from Gotri to Sindhrot, lots of trees were cut just for road widening.

Reduction of green cover is a big concern.

I honestly wish we have excellent monsoon. Need respite from the heat and agriculture Industry can also record good growth.
