“Rain is grace; rain is the sky descending to the earth;
without rain, there would be no life.”
John Updike’s profound words perfectly capture the essence of July in Mumbai. After the sweltering heat that dominated the months of May and June, the monsoon rains descended in the city and brought much-needed respite and a renewed sense of vitality to IIT Bombay and Mumbaikars.
July was also a very busy month for the Dean ACR and DRF office.
