Scenes after the big wet
Some scenes during and after the rains of 04th July 2007. We had 350mm of rain in 24 hours which is the most rain to fall in 37 years. It left the whole area flooded, roads broken, many houses destroyed. The main problems came from dams that hadn't had water for 15 years suddenly filling and then breaking sending torrents of water to the villages below. Our JCB excavator spent a nervous night plugging the hole in one dam 10km from the Ashram which, if it had broken, would have taken out three complete villages. However despite all the hassle everyone is happy to have the rain. It has been 5 years of drought and now mother earth is drinking her full.
