Usually the region of madhya Maharashtra (ie. Pune-kolhapur belt) witness some form of pre-monsoon activity in march-april. However this year has been rather dry until now. Is there any hope in coming days ?

European pollution helped cause one of India's worst-ever droughts, researchers show

Ian Johnston Environment Correspondent Friday 21 April 2017

Pollution from Europe helped cause a drought in India that was one of the country’s worst ever natural disasters, affecting more than 130 million people, according to new research.

Sulphur dioxide – produced mainly by coal-fired power plants – causes a number of harmful effects, such as acid rain, heart and lung diseases, and damage to plant growth.

But sulphate aerosols also have a cooling effect on the atmosphere because it reflects sunlight back into space, a property that has led some to suggest it could be used as a form of ‘geo-engineering’ to reduce the rate of global warming.

However, emissions from the northern hemisphere can change the relative rate of warming in the south, causing the tropical rain-band to shift – with potentially devastating results.

Bumper outstanding rains which Maharashtra, Central India received last year 2016 - Mumbai has highest water at its disposal since last 3 years! Infact Maharashtra has no impact even if monsoon 2017 fails or whatever. All lakes over Mumbai are in comfortable position so are all reservoirs in Maharastra.

Please refer from DNA

It is only in southern India which will be in deep crisis if monsoon fails - drought intensifies - TN govt put thermacool over reservoirs to prevent evaporation - not sure if this is madness or ?
