According to a BBC report, 33 crore ( 330 million ) people in India are presently affected by the drought conditions prevailing in many parts of India. What should be done about it and get rains ?
Well there are several traditional, time tested, methods to deal with the situation :
1. Perform yagyas
2.Ask women to take off all their clothes in the night and cultivate the barren fields with a 'hal' ( plough )
3. Marry a male and female frog
But, while not totally disapproving of the above methods, which many people claim are effective, and may be so, I am more in favour of singing raag megh malhaar, like Tansen or Baiju Bawra ( I forget which ).
So here goes
राग मेघ - RAAG MEGH MALHAR
