A flood of lessons 21.10.2017 deccanherald.com
Flash floods, record rains, deaths and miseries unprecedented in scale, Bengalureans have seen them all. A dramatic weather change played havoc on the roads and in their homes alike. Now, when the monsoon fades away, isn't it time to ask what went so horribly wrong. Why, despite warning, the authorities were caught so unprepared. Armed with a hundred telemetric rain gauges spread across the city, the Karnataka State Natural Disaster Monitoring Centre (KSNDMC) insists it had delivered regular, location-specific rain alerts through its Whatsapp group 'Be Ready Bengaluru.' That group has BBMP ward-level engineers, corporators, joint commissioners of the Palike, BMTC, BWSSB, traffic police and fire forces.

A saga of old tin roofs 21.10.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
As I write, hail-stones are rattling on the old tin roof of Ivy Cottage. The roof and the old stone walls have been through hundreds of hail-storms, snow-storms, monsoon downpours, gale-force winds, and hot summer sunshine. I like the sunshine most of all — but best after a shower, when the earth gives out a scent of its own, dusty leaves and grass are washed clean, and the cloud shapes keep changing, so that the light from my window arrives on my writing-pad in various shades — bright marigold yellow to pale nasturtium and balsam tints. The raindrops settle on the window panes, and the sun striking through them converts them into beads of bright topaz, effervescent jewels meant only for a few moments of reverie.
