Subhash Bondre, the owner of Cafe 1 C.R, said, “We hope that the rains stop. Students usually hang out over here in the evening. Moreover, it was a Sunday, so the crowd was already less. These sudden rains have added salt to our wounds.”


There was no scope for improvement till late evening as there was a constant downpour. Water continued to log into the area. Streets were empty as people resorted to saying back. People kept safe by being inside their homes till the rains stopped. There was a short relief between 6 to 6:30 pm as the rains stopped.
