But are we prepared on this Day of Total Solar Eclipse . Now, I havent' doen any research, but it's a split-second thought that flashed thru'. Take all the parameters that are today :
- New Moon
- Total Solar Eclipse
- A steady drizzling rain adding to the steady input into the Hooghly River
- Surge coming up through the uniquely funnel-shaped Ganges Delta
- Embankments thar are not yet repaired. Note : It is also not humanly possible.
- Data from Kolkata Port Trust
