This is my first blog post so please excuse me if I am not upto the mark.
Rains Rains Rains … we all just wait for the Rain God to shower his blessings on us after a long unbearable heat in summers. The first Rain gives us sigh of relief from the scorching heat in summers.
First drop of rains shows happiness in each and everyone. Rains in drought affected areas bring joys and hopes for the living being. This year Maharashtra was affected by drought and it is considered to be the worst ever in last 40 years. Even Farmers are seen happy as their livelihood is dependent on Rain God. We expect rains for almost 3 – 4 months and that too in a periodic manner. Proper amount of rains helps to keep our reservoirs full and hence no scarcity of water for us all the year round.
On the other hand, Rains means inviting all sort of diseases in us. You just name it and its there all around you …Flu, Malaria, Cholera, Jaundice, Typhoid are the most common ones which normal person is easily infected during this season. One can see long queues at doctor’s clinic any time in monsoon. And not to forget the recent tragedy of very heavy rains in Uttarakhand. Rains created havoc in this state and so many lives have lost. People are still trapped and our government are trying their best to save all of them. I would not like to write or elaborate more on this as the news of this gave a shock to me!!! Lets pray for those who have lost their loved ones in this worst affected devastating act of Rains.
