Even though there was rain at the Airport and a few other areas in the city on Monday and Tuesday, it was not enough to cover the shortfall. Met Department director Surinder Paul is optimistic. He said the city can expect more rain and the shortfall would be made up for.
For now, the monsoon has not come anywhere close to the torrential downpour it is expected to be. Intermittent relief apart, this year’s monsoon so far has been hot, sticky and humid. With taps running dry and food prices going up, one can only pray for the monsoon to pick up.
