“Our lifeless farm is proof that this summer has been the harshest on record. How will we survive? The silo has grains that would last only for a few more days.”
Linda listened in silence as Sam expressed his utter disappointment. Disappointment was slowly turning into nervousness and fear. With consistent rains over the last couple of years, Linda and Sam had a bountiful harvesting season and lots to eat.
But this year, it hadn’t rained one bit. The situation had become so dire that if it didn’t rain soon enough, they would be forced to cut on their meals.

Oh that’s so sad 🙁
Well weaved Aseem!
Thanks Parul :).
Sounds like an old testament pronouncement.
Being totally reliant on farming for survival is risky and scary. Great story.
True that, in a day and age where droughts have become more common than ever, reliance on farming as a business is getting more riskier by the day.
It’s a similar situation here in some parts of US. Drought is bad, may there be some rain, not sunshine.
Great writing, as always.
Yeah this year seems to be the hottest on record in many places across the world :(. Nice to know you liked it :D.
