Ahead of offices and institutions opening up after Christmas and New Year holidays, this time used to be one of the busiest but the rain plays a spoiler. Specially in villages, this time of the year is busiest, as it is the season to collect the rice harvest from the fields, collecting firewoods, marriages and many others.
All these unusual phenomena are part of climate change, it is time to introspect our actions on the environment and take up preventive measures for preserving nature. Let’s look towards the future with hope as the best is yet to come.
