Would you mind sending "Change Request" to the controller of rain citing proper reason. We all will be thankful to you. Once your "Change Request" implemented we will have very exciting evenings here in Begaluru in hot summer.

My car bears the dent caused due to a hail storm few years back! So yes, hail storms are not that cute things.

But they, you have to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and have the serious wrong size ICE to fall on your car!

Not even a drop. Amit is right - its an election stunt. If you keep a glass on the car's roof and collect some ice, you might find somebody pouring a drink into it.
Visit Vittal Mallya Road and you will find 3 trees uprooted near UB city.

Looks like you really logged this ticket. Its simmering hot outside
Log another ticket now to set the temperature to a happy 23-26 Deg C during day time forever.

You uprooted those 3 trees on that road?? The Green people should be tipped to come over to your place & uproot you next!
