  4. The last anchor Welcome clouds: an optimistic monsoon forecast Gonby the numbers The forecast is optimistic, but changing monsoon trends are a challenge S. UBHODEEP

  5. The most recent assessment put out by the India Meteorological Department, that the southwest monsoon will be "normal" after a short break, comes as a relief. At the end of two months the total rainfall has met the criteria for 'normality,' although there are wide variations in the patterns of showers, leaving some districts hit by drought as others face floods. Official data show that the realisation of 384.7 mm of rain as of July 25 is only a 3% negative departure from the Long Period Average Yet, within this phase of the monsoon, some districts of Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Bihar, Assam, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh, Gujarat, Telangana and Vidarbha experienced deficits ranging from 20% to 59%. UBHODEEP

  6. In the case of Gujarat, it has been a story of both deficiency and heavy rainfall within the State. As with many previous monsoons, this rainy season has so far witnessed a lot of death and destruction: at least 465 people have died this year. Roads and infrastructure have been destroyed, and it will take massive investments to rebuild them. Thousands of people have had to shift to relief camps as floods have ruined their houses. The rainfall patterns, with their spatial variations, have major implications for agriculture and groundwater recharge as well. UBHODEEP

  7. Such displaced families urgently need relief to resume normal life. Water is the key determinant of India's agricultural output and the National Commission on Farmers chaired by the scientist, Professor M.S. Swaminathan, had several recommendations for its optimal use Given that 60% of the 192 million hectares of gross sown area assessed by the Commission was found to be rainfed, an accelerated programme to harness the monsoon is vital State programmes must take all measures to expand surface water storage, launch more minor irrigation schemes, and improve the recharge of groundwater UBHODEEP

  8. Altered rainfall trends in terms of intensity and variations across regions pose a new challenge. Scientists contend that the alluvial soil of the northern States benefit more from slow precipitation, while the hard-rock geography of the south needs heavy showers for groundwater recharge. A future-ready approach should therefore focus on augmentec storage and greater participation of the farming community in managing the vital resource. The IMD has issued a "normal" outlook for August, which is encouraging, and there are signs of fresh monsoon activity in Odisha, south Chhattisgarh, north coastal Andhra Pradesh and parts of Telangana. S. UBHODEEP

  9. If the forecast is accurate, and the trend of favourable climate conditions in the Indian Ocean continue, a further normal course of the season through September can be expected. UBHODEEP

  10. The last anchor Pause, refresh: on the GST Council's focus on MSMEs Golng by the numbers The GST Council does well to focus on the concerns of small firms S. UBHODEEP

  11. Ms. Badawi has long campaigned against Saudi Arabia's guardianship laws that require all Saudi women to have a male guardian. Her brother, who ran a website critical of the Saudi religious establishment, was sentenced to 10 years UBHODEEP

  12. For Canada, the spat could prove costly. Saudi Arabia is its second largest export destination in West Asia. The two countries have signed a $12 billion arms deal, which is still in the works. For Prince Mohammed, the diplomatic crisis is an opportunity to rethink the Kingdom's approach towards dissent and diplomacy. If he is indeed serious about reform, Riyadh should be lenient towards its advocates Taking vengeful action against those who stand by rights activists will neither help Saudi Arabia's image nor attract investment into the country.
