Rains . . . We need more . . .


After my last enthusiastic post on rains at NJH, it has been a disappointing time . . . More disappointing because, I'm just back from Kerala where it has been raining quite a lot. . . 




There have been reports that the monsoons have been quite bad this year in quite a number of places. . . Delhi experienced its' first showers only couple of days back. However, the North East has been very badly hit due to floods.


I was quite happy as we drove from Ranchi to NJH on the way from Kerala. There was some really heavy showers . . . 


Unfortunately, the overcast sky has not done justice to us over the last week. There has been some feeble showers. . . But, we need more. . . 


Already, there is a discussion about the possibility of a drought this year. . . 


It could make life difficult. . . 


However, the scattered showers has given some amount of greenery to the campus. Last year, we estimated that we had to spend quite a lot on keeping the campus cleared of shrubs and overgrown vegetation. . . 


Our engineer came up with the idea of getting a handheld machine for clearing overgrown vegetation. A very commonly used machine in the south of the country, we could not get the same here. So, we ended up buying it from Dindigul and I carried it as I returned from Kerala. 


Our maintenance guys are delighted with the machine. 2 reasons - The first one being that it helps to get the work done really fast. The second being that it helps them keep off snakes . . . Last year, one of the workers had a close shave with a viper while cutting the grass with a machete . . . 



Please do pray that we have more rains . . .
