The rain has raised farmers’ hopes of a good harvest. Tuesday’s spell has come as a prologue to the monsoon rains. It is an indication of good rains in future, said Munegowda, a farmer.

Chikkaballapur had not received rain even as other parts of the State experienced good rain, causing anxiety among farmers. There was apprehension that the delayed rain would affect farming calendar. The brief spell has served to allay fears, he said.

While the farmers were a relieved a lot, it was fun time for the children. Playing merrily in the rain they enjoyed sailing paper boats in streams and pools of rain water.
