Rainy season in KeralaJune - July is the season when Kerala gets maximum rain. To a certain extent this year is also showing the same trend. But when it rains people forget about the water scarcity they experienced during the summer. Now only a very small fraction of the population is attempting the rain-water harvest. If more people work on it the next summer will definitely reduce the water scarcity problem. There are different methods to preserve the rain water. Even allowing the water to absorb in the open area in the compound will help preservation. Allow the water to fall into the well, if a well is available in the compound. Dig small whole here and there inside the compound. Like this try different methods to allow water to remain within your compound.
