Calamitous rains in Chennai - சென்னையில் ஊழி.
Chennai and Tamilnadu are in the grip of unprecedented rainfall which has intensified since yesterday night. It is as though an Oozhi (ஊழி) or Pralaya had set in. There is no one who has not been affected by these rains in some way or the other. With more rains predicted for the coming days, it appears that things are going beyond human efforts to bring some succor to the suffering people. I can only think of Govardhan Krishna to protect us from the wrath of Varuna Bhagawan as he once did to protect the yadhavas from the wrath of Indra. This year being "VaaruNa Megha", Varuna is dominating the skies bringing heavy rainfall. (Read here).
Let us all pray to Govardhan Krishna to bring an end to the currently escalating calamity. The 10 Pasurams of Nammazhwar starting as ‘Aazhiyezhach sangum villum ezha’ are fit to be recited now, praying Lord Krishna to offer protection to the crores of people of Tamilnadu from the incessant downpour.
