B is for Beckon:

At the moment rainy season is at its peak in India. Monsoon clouds captivate nature lovers as well as camera aficionados. They exhibit mercurial tendencies, especially in hills. Cloud families act like gypsies as their designer formations keep changing constantly.  Unlike us they come and go at their own will.

There is the down side too.

In some states of India however, continuous rains have caused floods and lakh of people are affected.  They have been shifted to safer places. The Government agencies are on their toes to provide all assistance to the people who are rendered homeless as their makeshift dwellings units could not stand the raging fury of the floodwaters.

Ironically, many parts of India are rain deficit. In some states crops are rain-fed because of lack of irrigation facilities. Sufficient monsoon showers are a much needed boon for farmers and everybody else to prevent the further depletion of groundwater. Water scarcity is looming large not only in India but in many parts of the world. Global cooperation is needed to rectify the situation. 

 Some images of rain clouds from here and there!

  6. Hello, gorgeous captures of the skies. It would be nice if everyone got just the right amount of rain, not too much and not too little. Enjoy your day! Have a happy weekend.

  7. Rain clouds are so beautiful, but they do bring so much rain, which can be very destructive.

    Worth a Thousand Words

  8. Lovely photos, Uppal. I hope you get sufficient rain from the monsoons this year. When we have good years of rain, a lot of us take it for granted that all is well again. It doesn't help when we have leaders who poo-poo the science of climate change.

  9. Beautiful sky captures. Water scarcity is a very scary thing and is a global concern.
