In Tamilnadu, especially chennai... Now people dont ask you the Area you are from but the Aree(Yeri i.e., tank) you belong to!
That is the situation there, fully flooded. My sweet little home had a swimming pool this saturday when I was there...
There were days, when I was young I pray for rains which translates to me as leaves... And later as increase in the level of water table, But now... ops. Anything that exceeds the limit is poisonous, Even if its the elixir of life
How about the contrary, poison in traces is elixir of life? I believe it is also true.
