Chennai, Assam, Okhi and Kerala of India have been experiencing heavy floods, cyclones, forest fires and droughts since 2015—hundreds of people lost their lives and properties. Now, a forecast of a below average monsoon is expected in 2019 after last year’s erratic rainfall that flooded Kerala and crippled agriculture in eastern and western States. This is a cause for worry to millions of Indians: should the monsoon turn out to be deficient, it will add to the pressures on rural employment and the economy.
