Q.

Hi folks. Its still raining in cats & dogs in Mumbai and our Met Experts proclaiming it to be "stray pre-monsoon showers".

I am really curious now to meet atleast one of these Jokers but dont know how to reach them.

Can u pls tell me how these govt. paid Met Experts look like ? And which century / what kinda appliances / devices / techniques they use for weather forecast ?
Do they also consult any astrologers ? :)

(No FIRING from the word go, as have no idea abt what they are saying till yet, but just beleiving ur words)

May be they are Gandhivadis.....??? Always beleiving in Ahinsa (& spreading hinsa between people) :)))))))))))))))))))))))
Ofcourse they must be looking like humans, but the devices they must be using are not used by humans nowadays :)))

Reg Astrologers............Yes, they must be consulting, but not in terms of weather forecast for sure. Now for what, you make a Guess........??? :)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

It's not only in INDIA but throughout the world.
USA says it has SATELLITES which can PINPOINT even an ANT on the ground.
Unfortunately, they have not been able to PINPOINT the one man they are desperately LOOKING FOR!!! So much about TECHNOLOGY. Good Question though. Keep it UP

It is quite simple, get hold of that person who carries a big umbrella on a bright sunny and warm day but doesn't open it :))

Cocktail.. the Met experts ist in the Colaba Meterological Laboratory in Colaba.. You have to go towards US Club and they are there ..a little ahead of RC Church.. Keep St. Joseph's Convent to your right and keep going straight ahead.. It is near Defence Cinema.
Thye are all scientists and a little absent minded.. that is all.. nice people and harmless on the whole but a little dotty in the head.

As far as I believe, I think nature n its movements r beyond our control n measurements. Rains will always pour water whether pre monsoon or monsoon.So just chill and don't bother for these Govt paid Met experts who i think has never predicted nethg perfectly about the weather.

Hey CR, how can you forget your own forwarded mail about Red Indians and Met Officials, where Met Official was basing his winter forecast on how the Red Indians were collecting the woods and Chief was ordering the tribal mates to collect the woods based on information collected from the met Official.
Well friend your answer is here.:-)

Raj, Whether prediction is very complex process involving hundreds of parameters. They use very highly sophisticated system, staellite communication systems, high en computer systems etc. I also really wonder, why prediction fail!

Met experts r also human they r liable to commit mistakes, doesn't matter how advanced technology they r using. It is better not to depend on their reports regarding monsoon...... if they said it is going to be a heavy rain take d opposite meaning of it:)
