This used to be the bed of a lake that was formed by the Emerald Dam and the Avalanche Dam in the Nilgiris, India.
After 2 years of no rain, vast areas of the reservoir have dried up, leaving only small trickling streams of water where there once was a lake.
This year, the rains are expected on time. We can only hope.
