This time monsoon has broken the record in the state. The 11-year record has been broken in the month of August, when it has rained 8 inches more this time than in 2011. Here, if we look at the part of western Rajasthan, here the rain has broken the record of 10 years.
This is the first time in 10 years that the entire desert area has turned green. There was a time when sand dunes were visible all around in western Rajasthan as soon as one came out of the cities and towns. But, this time monsoon has turned these dunes green.
According to the reports of the Meteorological Department, six districts of the state (Bikaner, Barmer, Churu, Jodhpur, Ganganagar and Jaisalmer) have received more than normal rainfall. If we look at the record data of rain, according to last year, there has been 70 to 123 percent more rain this year.
The highest rainfall has been received in Jaisalmer, which has 123 percent rainfall compared to last year. It received 156 mm of rain last year, but this time it has received 350 mm of rain till September 3. At the same time, the percentage of rain in Bikaner till the last days was around 130 percent but it did not rain in the last week of August. Even after this, there is 97 percent more rain than last year. Last year, Bikaner received only 171 mm of rain, but this time this figure has reached 433 mm. Similarly, Barmer has received 84 percent, Churu 70 percent, Jodhpur 71 percent, Ganganagar 85 percent more rain.
No rain below normal anywhere
According to the report of the Meteorological Department released on September 3, this time the monsoon was so spectacular that no district of the state receives less than normal rainfall. Generally, districts with less than 20 percent of the normal rainfall are classified as below normal. This time there is no district in this list. All the districts have received almost 100 per cent rainfall. In general, if we estimate from the monsoon rains, then Bikaner received the highest rainfall in the state. It is also felt in the desert of this district, which has almost hundred percent more rain than normal.
