Filled to the Brim (and then some)

Okay, I love swimming, but even I draw a line…. Between the crocs, flood waters and rapids, and the fact that even the coracle boats (round boats woven like baskets) were avoiding the Tungabhadra River, that line was drawn in Hampi this weekend. Boys were fishing from the roofs of flooded marketplace stalls. The river was lapping at the steps of the temple. But it was breathtaking to see. There is a dam further upstream (literally overflowing, reportedly in a “controlled” manner), so things could have been even worse. But all in all it’s a sign of good monsoon and good crops to come!
