Mumbai, March 9: Since Wedensday evening the  weather in Mumbai has begun playing truant and as the clouds were forming, fear and panic arose amongst the residents of mumbai fearing another "big rainy season".

Barely out of the horrid memories of the recent rains in July that lashed the city leaving the city with corpses and cripples, the heavy ligthening and huge showers of rain started pouring since Thursday.

Practically there was dark and gloom that was spread over Mumbai and  the rains were rather average. Normal life in the city was not hampered trains and other transport went about normally. However due to destiny or ill fate if one could say, the cause of an electric shock took away the lives of two brothers from the Jerimeri Rosary Chawl  - Hiria Pujary (51) and Shena Pujari(41).
"Electric shock was  merely an accident and had  nothing to do with the rains" said the relatives of Pujari.
Around 8.30am  the elder brother saw a cloth bag  on fire in the chawl compund and immediately rushed towards the place to douse the fire, but an elecrtic shock
grabbed him. While going to his rescuse  his younger brother Manjunath too got engulfed in the electric shock.
The Tulunadu volunteer group members tried their level best to rescue both the brothers, but by the time  the Fire service reached  on the spot,  the end of both brothers  had already come.
The Pujari brothers were very popualr in their circle of friends and neighbours and a large crowd of people gathered to witness this tragic and gruesome incident which claimed two lives at one time.
