As it rains in the capital, I got reminded of the meteorology classes during my master's. In one of the many meteorology classes back in TERI, none of us could answer what is the average annual rainfall India & the world receives.
It was raining horribly one fine morning in September 2016 & we were just learning to look at rainfall data in that particular meteorology class. The nearest rainfall station from Vasant Kunj is at Safdarjung.
Just for perspective, the average annual rainfall in India is ~ 120 cm, which btw is fairly a good number given the vast physiographic conditions this country has.

Today @rashtrapatibhvn laid foundation of a war memorial at Alaboi Battle site in #Assam .But how many of us really know that 10,000 brave Ahom soldiers had sacrificed their lives in this battle? Not yr fault,existing education system gets the credit here! ;)) Image

Like other great Kingdoms of #Bharat in that era, the great Ahom Kingdom had also come under several attacks, mostly by the Mughals. But the resistance from the brave Ahoms & mother nature’s blessings had always stood in between the Mughals & their victory. Image

The great Ahom Kingdom had many brave warriors who were known for their unmatched valor. But today the name “Lachit Borphukan” resonates across #Assam with utmost love & respect. To know how brave & skillful he was as a warrior,one has to read abt the Battle of Saraighat. Image

1. What comes to your mind when you hear 'Chambal'?

Daku/dacoits - right?

Up to the early 2000s, organized crime controlled Chambal across MP, Rajasthan, Haryana, and UP.

Today we talk not of extinct dacoits, but endangered wildlife.

2. Apart from the बीहड़ badlands, it has the National Chambal Sanctuary.

A 5,400 km2 protected area for the critically endangered gharial, the red-crowned roof turtle and the Ganges river dolphin.

3. The sanctuary runs across UP, MP and Rajasthan.

In 1978, Madhya Pradesh declared it an eco-reserve. Today, it is co-administered by the three states.
