Around Home - During Floods
Credits: mahesh balasubramanian
Updated: 12/01/20

In Dec 2015, Chennai, India had an unusually heavy rainfall generated by the annual northeast monsoon in Nov - Dec 2015. The flooding in Chennai city was worsened by years of illegal development and inadequate levels of flood preparedness. 


During these times, we did not have power and there is no way to communicate with other cities. I started documenting these times around home. But, I could not take lots of pictures which I wanted to include due to drained batteries.
