Something about the monsoon in Mumbai.

Usually we have atleast a dozen people dying every year due to the rain in Mumbai alone. But this year we have over 24 people dead due to the rains, and the season has just begun.

Weathermen predit it will be the even worse than 2005 which was the worst in living memory. I will post a bunch of articles to show you some of what is going on.

Stay safe down there! Delhi's had a bit of rain, but it's been fairly inconsistent. It's quite the contrast to the scorching summer though.

So are you getting more rainfall than a normal monsoon? Or is it more concentrated in time?
ObtiksAuthor
it is more concentrated and we have more rainfall by this time than the last decade. forecast says we will more rain.

I’m sorry to hear that. There must be some other area in a prolonged drought because the climate is messed up.

Things like these infuriate me. Everyone knows that Mumbai is one of the cities with the highest rainfall in the country. But I can't fathom why this happens every damn year. Why aren't the BMC people or the Senas, etc doing anything to improve the drainage and other basic facilities. Its very disheartening for me to read about such deaths, as it is every year.

the value for life is very little here... and people dont much concern with anything, if they can manage without it.
