The prediction of meteorological department of forecasting 110 per cent rains is a welcoming news.  As per the weather report there is no chance of drought this year.  If it is normal, the country will record nearly 900 mm for the fur month period from June to September this year.  The onset month of June and the withdrawal month of September give a promising picture in terms of good country wide rainfall distribution. Normal rainfall in the country is critical for rice, cane, corn, cotton and soybean cultivation. To start with, the month of June will have excess rain fall and they may not cause anxiety of delay in monsoon setting up in the state in general and the country in particular. Even September is going to have normal rain fall and may exceed 100 mm mark and it is also the good news. Now it is time to manage water resources available to our advantage instead of playing blame game about floods.
