Owing to the blistering heat of the sun and the absence of even the slightest overcast over the city of Calicut, water shortage has struck the college early this year. Even though signs of water crisis popped up last year only around May, this time the predicament has resurfaced to haunt the campus much earlier. This year’s SAC Holi celebration has already been called off, which strengthens the dreading fear that the water scarcity might actually affect Ragam ’17. Rumours about classes closing right after Ragam are still going around in the campus. Let’s hope all the hard work doesn’t go in vain. We strongly advise you against celebrating birthdays in ways that waste water in any manner. Kindly save water, its high time you realize we are running short of it.
