It cannot be assumed that the current monsoon change is affecting only India. Two weeks ago, 15 cm of rain fell in Germany in 24 hours.
The economic loss caused by the rains is said to be 5 billion euros. China is still reeling from more than 61 cm of rain a day. Such heavy rainfall causes fear of the future.
The Ministry of Environment supports deforestation for development purposes. Be it the Himalayas or the Western Ghats, if we attack nature regardless of the ecology by creating infrastructures such as roads and bridges, nature would retaliate with weapons like rain and storms.
The monsoon has started and is only half over. It is now the season of increasing storms and heavy rains. We have to go through the next few months.
There is no doubt that loss of life and property can be avoided only if one is prepared in advance in an unpredictable environment of how and when the season may change.
