June 2015

Back after a months break, which was rather busy in itself. Early rains and the valley is looking green. However groundwater is fast depleting. Conflicting reports of the monsoon, skymet saying it  would be normal, while IMD predicting a deficiency. No planting has occurred while some farmers have ploughed their fields.
This slight increase in farming activity means that the number of patients also drops off. Also a large population has migrated out of the villages to cities looking for work.

April 2015

Its becoming increasingly hot. One has to drink water by the litre to keep hydrated and have some semblance of alertness while dealing with patients.
A couple of showers have helped cool the heat, albeit temporarily. Some relief!!!
