Kolkata: Light showers in the wee hours of Wednesday provided a soothing relief to the city dwellers of Kolkata from rising mercury. Although the deadly heat wave had subsided, the weather was warm throughout the day. The drizzle has proved to a pleasant experience for the people to have a cozy sleep, curled up in their bed.
A few days ago the city had virtually transformed into Venice due to the much praised works of the municipal department and an ageing drainage system. Vast swaths have been water logged in Kolkata and the state's southern part experienced flood. The flood had extracted a toll of 125 lives.
