Yesterday I got an SMS from a friend in Bangalore.
"I hear it's raining heavily in Chennai. Guess you won't need Cauvery water this year."
What he hasn't heard is that it's not just the rains that's contributing to the increased levels of ground water. The local male populace, not to be discouraged by a rainy day, have been unzipping and shooting their hearts out with gay abandon. In public places. So I'd still like to have my drinking water from the Cauvery.
