Bhadrachalam, July 17 (Hydnow): Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao said a few foreign countries have been indulging in the cloudburst conspiracy in India for some time and suspected that the cloudburst conspiracy might be one of the reasons for the unprecedented floods to the river Godavari in Telangana.
Speaking to the media here on Sunday after inspecting the flood-hit areas in and around Bhadrachalam town, the Chief Minister said that some foreign forces were deliberately indulging in the practice of cloudburst in India and they had successfully done in Laddakh and Leh in Jammu and Kashmir and Uttarakhand States, resulting in the unprecedented floods and heavy loss of human lives.
“Cloudburst, a new process can be noticed now. Some are saying there are a few conspiracies involved. I don’t know how much truth there is to it. Few people from other countries are doing cloudbursts in India. In the past they (people from other countries) have done cloudbursts in Leh, Ladakh, Uttarakhand…and now we have information that they are doing cloudbursts in the vicinity of Godavari river,” the Chief Minister alleged
The Cambridge dictionary defines ‘cloudburst’ as a sudden heavy fall of rain. According to the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), if 10 cm of rainfall is received at a station in one hour, the rain event is termed a cloud burst. It is very difficult to predict cloud bursts due to their very small scale in space and time. (Hydnow)
I could never wrap my head around Bollywood’s obsession with continuously addressing condom as a chhatri or an umbrella. Not only it’s cringe to hear repeatedly but also, it somewhere defeats the whole purpose with which films around these subjects are made. Moreover, picking a taboo subject and making a film on it can turn out to be quite risky if you don’t stick to the agenda and beat around the bush. Thankfully, Rakul Preet Singh’s Chhatriwali, directed by Tejas Prabhaa Vijay Deoskar, doesn’t digress much, and follows a crisp screenplay. There are some flaws here and there, but with all the humour and lighter moments, they can be somewhat overlooked.
