What’s the use just the waste of money!
People r suffering n aerial view is on v wanna c those view aerially. Instead that expense on aerial view could be given for our poor farmers who suffered losses. Please understand the situation and act. Someone who really cares n bothers will let no harm to others n provider nessecity on the go n expect nothing in return n that’s called humanity. But no v came to the world to enjoy n cause more problems instead of figuring out the solution so y do v bother about others let they live or die. Please act maturedly that’s so hurting listening to all of this that’s just not acceptable. Put yourself in the farmers shoes then analyse the situation u will figure out what pain is. Please show humanity.
Rain Water is not properly utilized. We should make use of it. There are many ways to stop flooding. why only we think after there is heavy rain & flooding? Why not we prepare for it?
I have seen places where there is still scarcity for drinking water. it is released once in a week or more longer than that.
