Dawn overlooking the Ratmale Tank (Lake)

 The sights are at dawn when I walked up the steps to take these photos of the lake full to the brim as late as February 7th 2016 where there is only one more month at most for harvesting.

This means that even with NO rainfall for the rest of the year the village paddy field will be cultivate for the second time of the season in May 2016, and the villagers will look forward to a bountiful harvest yet again.

The problem is the price of paddy, as the Govt. stores are already full, and will they take this paddy at the guaranteed prices.

I somehow doubt it and the price of paddy is coming in for a fall, and the traders and millers will profit exceedingly from this, whilst the farmers, who are the growers, and the consumers who are the eaters of the rice will both suffer, one from insufficient price and the other from too high a price!!

The light peeping through the clouds in the morning, and the sun would not come out even later!
