South East India Anantapur Rayalseema is likely driest place in India - much attributed due to continues NEM failures . Rajasthan Jaiselmer, Gujarat Kutch are no longer dry places due to exceptional SWM.

  October 5th.. Dussehra wishes to all Vagaries Readers  It now seems we may have to neglect the weak BB 14 and concentrate on this new Low....
