O' Monsoon! Thy Phet?

South West Monsoon seems to have developed a fatal attraction for Keralian hospitality. It arrived there in May 30 and stayed put there. This time thanks to Phet--a cyclonic upheaval in the Arabian sea. Or has it been Indian Monsoon's 'fate' as usual?

Same old story like in 2009. Last it was aila cyclone in the Bay of Bengal plus a suspected El Nino conspiracy.

This year the heat is more persistent with mercury hovering over 45 in the state of Maharashtra and other parts of the country. Water scarcity and even drought like situations developing in many parts. Remaining water levels are at the lowest--be it the city of Mumbai or the villages. If the monsoon is delayed further...well, let's not think about it.

Phet had come and spent itself, but the South West Monsoon is yet to be active and moving. The expected date of 5th June in Mumbai is gone. Now it is expected by 10th, but before that the monsoon has to reach Goa.

O' Monsoon please pour soon! Maybe independent India's dependence on you has made you precious and slippery. But at least have mercy on the Indian hapless farmers looking at the sky and praying continuously.
