July - Sep 2016

The meteorological forecasts were optimistic - plenty of rains - unfortunately not a drop - the groundnuts have all withered, the jowar has gone - few straggly spike here and there. Makes one heart bleed

By end September all were wearing a glum look - withered crops, rapidly depleting ground water and soon the familiar sounds of a tractor pulling a trailer with water
Any way the RHC continued to be busy
