In Telangana, Dasara is a very big festival. Bathakamma is these days only. Ladies will have a lot of entertainment in these days. But because of these rains, this festival look is not there. But We should welcome these rains so that the groundwater levels will increase and incoming summer we will not face water problem. 2 or 3 days we may suffer. But we will have no water problem during summer. So I always welcome rains.
Today in our area we had a few hours of dry weather but evening again it started to rain. Only grace is that the temple in our complex has been well decorated and a large number of people are at least coming out to the temple if not going out to see relatives.
Non-violence is the greatest Dharma; So too is all righteous violence.

Some places it might have dampened the spirits but as we are the fun loving people we will see to it that festival is to be celebrated at any cost and even those who do not like even a sprinkle of water on their faces will drench throughout the evening while enjoying the fun of this particular festival.
Being religious is one thing and just enjoying a festival is another thing but when everyone comes forward to celebrate together then real fun starts whether rain is there or not.
Knowledge is power.
