Chennaiyin Mazhai Kaalam

It seems, after last week's rain 'Amma' had told that 'See.. I told you earlier, that we are going to get good rain... Now you have got it'.

Need to appreciate 'Amma's predictions.. but alas, Chennai had to still cope up with the heavy rain's effects.

Seems like Rain Gods are giving an ultimatum.. If the government isnt going to create proper drainage facilities then the rain would do it itself...

Aatma / Arjuna.... Is it a co-incidence that both of you are visiting Chennai, at the same time???

Prasanna.. I believe this would have been one of our PWD / Telecom depts' work only. I don't think rain god would have been so furious enough to create a big hole like this...

Visithra / Raju.. yes. this resemebles the pictures of Mumbai flooding two months back.

lxsn.. i was scared to see that, eventhough I liked its resemblance to the horseshoe falls.

Vatsan / Kaps.... world is too small.. he he he....

What's the point but, we donot have storage to save the water and next summer the same "No Water Problem" will continue...

If what Amma says is true, please somebody ask Amma to say that there will be enough rains to see TN through summer without any floods.

Vanathi.. credit goes to the person who was behind the lens, inspite of those heavy rains.

Cogito.. hope she doesn't use this as a Govt achievement during her next elections. (that, she pushed the "rain god" and got it sanctioned for the TN people!!!!)

AF / VJ..hope they have enough facilities to save this and use it for future.. Not sure, what are the efforts at Govt. levels.

Mr.Narayanan.. agree. Definitely some are scary....
