Bad monsoon so far...

This picture was published in a telugu newspaper "eenadu". It gives a complete picture on how the monsoon has fared so far in India. To make things easier for non telugu speaking people, I am giving the colour code here:

Blue—Excess rainfall (+20% or more)
Green—Normal rainfall ( +19% to –19%)
Brown—Less than normal rainfall(-20% to –59%)
Yellow—-60% to –99%

The numbers in the states give the exact picture. Also, this data is based on rainfall from June 1 to July 15
