Monsoons and Floods - Black and White Thursdays

For years since the dawn of time the seasonal Monsoon rains have played an important part in giving water to all things living in South Asia which includes countries like India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan and Maldives. But, when extra rain pours down, floods come. This picture depicts one such flood which arrives every year in the Indian State of Orissa (Odisha) (a part of the Gangetic Plains) affecting life, destroying crops and damaging property. Because of its repeated occurrence it becomes an immortal picture and finds a place in this edition of Black and White Thursdays.

 Observe the overcast skies, submerged trees and the weeds floating about

How sad.I was wondering if we could blame global climate change for these floods in Orissa,but I do not think so - they have been coming since several years now.Long time.
Even though we hope that life all across the world remains safe from natural calamities this new year,the governments needs to do as much as they can for the safety and welfare of their citizens.
