I was out in Pune 3 weeks ago and I have never seen rain like it


One of our offices was caught in floods there last year which rose as high as the 4th floor. We're all a bit concerned about colleagues out there right now. Hopefully the rains will subside.

It's only when you have visited these places that you can really imagine the impact these events will have on the locals people.

This is very very sad. I cannot imagine what it must be like for those people.
I feel almost guilty sitting in my comfortable home with all of it's creature comfors worried about gas prices climbing so I can drive to work to make my money and drive home again and play on my computer and sleep in my bed meanwhile there are these terrible circumstances that affects millions daily.

These people are going to go hungry and get sick and cold. I feel so terrible for them.
