    Those childhood days in secondary school flashed back. Enjoying in rain, catching tiny fishes from flowing streams (thodu), making small ponds, wells and feeding these fishes, eating fried tamarind seeds in rainy season. Time flies so fast. Grown up different games and adventures then settle down. So make best use of time in life. Keep away from gossip, feeling and talking ill of others. Time spent is the best and such spent will never come. Time & tide wait for none. Opportunities never occur very often. Cynthia, are enjoying rains ?

    It is ridiculous to declare holiday for schools in the morning. Students are already on the way to school and parents are already on their job to send the children.

    If it is holiday, why can not Udupi DC declare earlier in the morning? With so much of weather forecasting available you have to wait till 8AM to declare holiday? The school buses are already en route school and parents on the way to their work, if you declare holiday in between, everyones daily schedule will be a mess.

    The weather forecast is given to them a day before, so declaring it on 635 am is equally stupid. Also parents should make a habit a watching news in the morning instead.
