Again annoying question - North east monsoon - happen / not happen. Waiting for TN (most important) / AP/ KAR / KER to receive GUJ / RAJ style of rains - 200 - 500 mm in 24 hrs. Prime minister Modi is taking US by storm over "Digital India" - ironically US president Obama is more concerned on climatic changes!!
