  1. Though Mylapore Times rightly portraying the havocs of rains in the last few days, elsewhere many parts of Chennai echoes the same feeling of the residents. Today, we don’t enjoy the seasonal rains of our younger days, without the JCPs, and the sophisticated weather radars. Since 2015, if I remember correctly this is the 3rd Freightning seasonal rains for Chennai, and the rains of today probably on account of’ Elnino’, pours something like 45 CMs in two days.
