A scanned negative shot from 1997. As you can see there are puddles here. The rain had been torrential. The first thing I did while taking a taxi from the airport was ask to be taken to an ‘Umbrella Wallah’. Much to my surprise he did. A shop just selling umbrellas.
The same umbrella didn’t offer much protection when I was in a tiny village in Karnataka. The rain was so heavy that it came straight through.
