Monsoon 2009

Every other politician like Mr. Sharad Pawar, Mr. Pranab Mukherjee has started giving meteorological forecast these days. The reality is depicted in the maps given above (source: Indian Met Office Website).
This is the rainfall map for 1st June to 8Th July.
So what FM claimed in NDTV interview, that Monsoon will make up with surplus rain in July.
Few points I need to mention over here:
1. Monsoon is a natural phenomenon (Sorry Its not on government payroll) and has no compulsion to fill up any deficits or to meet any target. It is only governed by many simple rules of physics.
2. If monsoon actually fills up the rainfall deficits upto now in next 14 days or so, the areas shown in red in the maps above will be flooded. This will bring more misery,not less.
3. This one is for all politicians:
You can not trade with nature for your survival, Just like a new born baby can not trade with the mother for the milk.
