Nonseasonal Rain! Are they boon or bane?Just as the summers were about to get fierce in our place, the climate changed drastically in a matter of few days it started to rain heavily. I have never seen a heavy downpour of rain in this month of the year anytime ever in my life, so we were all so happy and gladly received it, as it all gave us a relief from the rain. It was like heavy water lashing into the furnace.
But as we were all very happy with the downpour of rain, one of my colleagues showed worry on his face. I wondered what could make him sad as it is good to get rain which has calmed the environment. I approached him and asked him the reason for worry, he replied that his father was a farmer and this rain was going to spoil all the crops and they would be in huge loss, the estimated amount of loss was around 5 lac.
That was when I realized, how true is that! When we enjoy this rain, the farmers might be praying for the sun. What we considered as a boon is a bane for them.
Have you received this non-seasonal rain in your locality? Was it boon or bane for you?
