October - December 2015

Wow what a change - for the better - Splendid rains - rained continuously and we got a years rainfall in 2 weeks Approx 100 cm - gods be praised
Everyone has a big smile on their face and why not - the percolation tanks are full and overflowing, the streams running, borewells recharged - there is now drinking water in the bores as well as enough and more for agriculture. At least for the next year we should be comfortable
The big challenge is to get farmers to continue to conserve water and not waste it with indiscriminate flooding of the fields.

The Health centre also had a 2 week break over Deepavali. As usual it was terrific to put ones feet up and come back recharged

The number of patients took a dip because of the rains and increase in Agricultural activity
