Rains in Kerala

My nephew sent this photo where due to heavy rains, some roads in Pala were flooded.

That brought back fond memories when I was studying there and once in a year, usually in July, the place gets flooded.

And, as part of the swimming team, we used to take lead in swimming from the hostel to the sports stadium which is about two kilometres. This is no swimming in the river, it’s through the regular road.

The cutest and weirdest thing was that the days of flooding was accurately predicted in advance by Cherpunkal Appi, the local weatherman who operates without any tools to assist.

All very pleasurable, if you can pretend to be totally unaware of the miseries some people face because of the flooding.
