The drought is really taking hold.
For the first time ever, elephants have come over the Palani Hills to our valley in search of water and food. Five elephants visited over the weekend. The crowds of local people made them nervous so we kept our distance!
Today’s Hindu newspaper tells the story.
People in our area are hoping and praying for a good summer monsoon to help replenish water supplies, for ourselves and the animals. If we don’t get it we then have to wait until November.
On a positive note it has just started raining. Maybe the elephants have brought us good luck – and good rain!
