Mumbai Rains - 2

Yesterday it was all about records and statistics and inconveniences to Mumbaites. But the sudden jump in the death toll is shocking and the desperate pleas for help from people in other places looking for news about their loved ones, are heartrending. They indicate that this is a much bigger tragedy.

Here are 2 photos that my brother forwarded to me.

This one has a very personal touch. I'm sure the poetically inclined can come up with some very good kavidhais for this one...

This one really indicates the magnitude of the downpour and the accompanying floods...

The rains do seem to be letting up though the effects will last several weeks if not months... I'm sure the Mumbaiites will shake this off and life will go on as usual very soon.

ரயில் பயணம்

சிறு வயதில் நண்பர்களோடு
சிக்குபுக்கு பயணம் வீட்டினில்

பெரு மழையால் நகரத்தோடு
நடைப் பயணம் வீடு நோக்கி
