    We need the rains very badly as Mangalore city and surrounding places are short of water in every front right now. I do not know what will be the situations in the coming days if rains do not come on time. Some of the comments by some readers is based mostly on election which has nothing to do with this rain, lightening, and thundering.

    Acche din referred here by Jossey, is due to Moda (cloud) and not Modi.
