It was kind of photo finish for the race between Flood waters of Ghagger River and Monsoon Rains. The rich in minerals Ghagger waters that have a catchment area in Morni Hills, Ambala, Chadigarh, Patiala, Roopnagar, Panchkula, Mohali etc. Take 3-5 days after a heavy down pour in the catchment area. While Ghagger was in a hurry, monsoon rains were moving ahead at comfortable pace, but both seemd to be competing with each other. In this race, Ghagger crossed the bridge on NH10 near Village Khairekan, only to be followed on close heels by 1st Monsoon rain in the same evening. This post is having a series of Videos of the Ghaggar and the Monsoon rains. The rain and the Ghagger water both seemed tired and did not oblige much as they knocked the doors of Sirsa, as both they are saying: ‘Film Abhi Baaki hai....’ It be mentioned here that Ghagger River which is also mostly known as Naali in Sirsa is also said to be part of the Lost Saraswati River.
