Rajesh sir,It is still very hot in the afternoon in Mumbai eastern suburb. Nights are little better. Is it normal or this year is different?

Nice historical compilation. If see the facts
south east India is the most vulnerable spot for extreme droughts - always probability of north east monsoon failures.

Years like 2005, 2015 are extreme rare events
