Re: The "It's raining in my city" Thread!

There seems to be no love lost between Karnataka and the rains this monsoon season. While central and northern parts of the state are in the process of being declared drought hit, the Malenadu hinterlands too are facing acute shortage of rainfall.

Yesterday, we were part of an event called ಮಳೆ ನಡಿಗೆ/Trek in the Rains. It started from Kottigehara and ended at Devaramane - a distance of around 12 km by foot - passing through numerous hillocks, thick vegetation and fields. Whereas the entire trek was to have happened in the midst of pouring rain, we were blessed with intermittent showers only in the last ten minutes of the sojourn, when we reached the destination.

The forest officials who accompanied us were telling that the place has received only one third of the rains that it should have normally recieved by now.

While the northern parts of the country are facing the wrath of monsoons, we in the south are left praying to the rain gods to bless us with their bounty.

Rain rain and more rain in Patiala, Punjab.

Just had flooding in some parts of the city a couple of weeks ago and after a dry week it is pounding hard today. No electricity since morning.

In spite of some abundance in certain pockets, is it perhaps time for the majority to say that "it hasn't rained properly in my city?"

Though the map shows only -5% for the south interior KA macro region, I think for Bengaluru the deficit would be much more. I can only recall 2-3 days this season when it rained substantially. Scary times ahead for Bengaluru .
