Aquarius Rains !
Yesterday it rained heavily for more than two hours. Started from 0600PM and lasted till 0830 PM.
There is a saying in Malayalam " Kumbha mazhayil kathirum pookam " - that anything will sprout during the summer rains in the sidereal months of Aquarius.
Temperature may rise to more than 40 degrees win the sidereal months of Aquarius ( Kumbha ) and Pisces ( Meena ).
Kerala receives more than 400 mm rains during the summer. This comes as a big relief from the blistering heat. And when Kala Varsha ( South East Monsoon ) comes, people welcome it as a merciful release, even though it can wreak havoc on the "rural infrastructure" !
