from a compassionate man living in India's season of hell
summer, the population of India broils in relentless summer heat.
According to several recently published reports it is common for
a few hundred to die countrywide in a week's time from heat related
causes. Ironically, in the same year the Bush administration unilaterally
withdrew the US from the international Kyoto Global Warming treaty,
India has experienced its worst year on record. In India, summers
is the season of hell. It is normal for the summer heat to burn
above 100 degrees for months on end. According to several published
reports, the number of deaths recorded on May 15, in one southern
Indian state from record 120 degree temperatures totaled over
1000 in a single day. This concern has been brought home in a
recent letter, dated May 6, from Jam Yang Norbu who lives at the
Drepung Monastery in the southern Indian state of Karnataka.
