There’s a litter of 7 cute puppies near our house (5 male and 2 female). We have made a small temporary shelter with asbestos sheets for them in a vacant land nearby. We’ve been feeding them and the Mother for almost 5 weeks now. Mother is with the puppies and has weaned.
Out of the 7, 2 puppies seem to look puny when compared to the other littermates so they are being bullied by them or not sure if that is how they play! Since the two can’t fight back or play as much as the other 5 could, both the puppies were slightly hurt.

And what's going on there, could affect the wider world too.

#ChennaiWaterCrisis
The southern city of #Chennai is one of India's largest and richest. Yet millions now rely on water trucks as taps have run dry. There's a scramble when the truck arrives - sometimes it can even get tense. In the area we visited families get 5 buckets a day.
#ChennaiWaterCrisis
We met Valarmathi, who has to live with her family on 5 buckets of water a day. That's to bathe, cook, drink and wash clothes. It's hard to imagine how you'd survive on that in any situation. But India is also in the middle of a heatwave #ChennaiWaterCrisis

Sol 1: #RainWaterHarvesting - Chennai has urbanized pretty fast n percolation into ground is getting reduced. Building wise RWH is one,but we need RWH in public spaces like bus stands etc; Every year Corporates spend a lot of CSR which could be used

Sol 2: #WasteWaterReuse - Currently most of the sewage is going to the sea via Cooum,Adyar rivers, Buckingham canal or ending in the lakes. This water could be reused through decentralized sewage treatment and reuse system

Oh @cmrlofficial . Why so averse to learning? New stations, same old access problems. #Senior #Joyride thread - I spy with my jaundiced eye. #ChennaiMetro #A11y #Fails @DisabilityIndia
Really @chennaicorp ! This is the access to Nehru Park Chennai Metro station? At points the pavement itself is non existent with bus and Poonamallee High Rd traffic whizzing by. Senior citizen required support on both sides with parking 50 m away. @cmrlofficial @DisabilityIndia
1 foot footpath with trip with at one side and someone sitting blocking the other side of the tree. Not to mention the auto blocking the way too. #Pedestrian #Accessibility #NotACakeWalk
