"In Kerala, there’s no reason to damn the dams" here is my answer to all pundits who are preaching an early opening of Idukki would have saved the flooding of Periyar..

Read it slowly and understand the nuances!…
Grab the hardcopy and read @NH_India
I felt depressed when a person who served as the Director of the prestigious IITM says that he has given warning & Kerala has no respect for his warning but Odisha has!!
Oh boy!! I am at a loss if you cant discern cyclones in East coast and extreme rainfall in Western coast
This explains the grave problem our country is going through. We seen this during #DemonetisationDisaster many economists shed basic economic theories and shamelessly defended it. I will be very happy when IMD develops the capabilities to predict these extreme storms like cyclone
If a meteorologist who head IMD says that Odisha respects our warnings but Kerala or the West Coast have no respect!! It is palatable to the ones who are waiting for to take it as a Gospel. I did not study meteorology, but my basic common sense and understanding made me shocked!
Then next group is the ones who proved their mettle in very unique fields but has no experience in managing reservoirs & flood hydrology. Of course, the society is aware that if they have a cardiac problem, they should go to a cardiologist and not a orthopaedic...
But Sadly for all other areas, we should seek response on esoteric subjects from celebrities to experts from other domains where they have no have expertise other than a generalist view. Great! This is the way forward for scientific temper. We are happy with a response from X/Y/Z
Unless we understand that there are esoteric and complex areas of science and engineering which needs decades of experience of observing and learning and our academic qualifications are only the foundation to start this long journey, we will be like blind lead a group blind
