Drink up!

The Times of India reported earlier this week that red worms showed up in drinking water in parts of Bangalore (I'm happy to say not MY part).

"The worms are not harmful but cannot be killed by chemical means," the Times story said.

Authorities attacked the problem by cleaning the reservoir involved and releasing fish fingerlings there, according to the paper.

I'm looking very closely at my water glass these days.

So how are you enjoying the much awaited Rainy season in Bangalore.

Pretty well. This is nowhere near as bad as I'd been expecting. If anything, it's like parts of my native United States.

In South Carolina in the Deep South, for example, you could just about set your watch by the daily thunderstorm around 5:30 p.m. every day.

That said, I know the monsoon is much, much worse in other places like Goa or Kerala on the west coast.

I stumbled on your blog today.

Hope you are looking carefully at the pavement where you walk as well.. :-)

Cheers,
Sunil
