A Peacock Welcome Dance for the Rain Gods

Dancing peacock in Delhi

A peacock opens its feathers in Delhi to welcome the brief spell of showers that transformed the city weather overnight. Delhi has been facing more severe heat waves each summer and owing to several urbanization impacts such as the urban heat island effect, construction works, etc.

The monsoon in the city is thus much awaited and its importance is felt even more each passing year. Water is indeed a limiting factor when it comes to sustaining urban development. Going by the drying of lakes and water bodies in and around the city, a successful south-western monsoon has thus become critical for survival.
