What is one to say about June? The time of perfect young summer, the fulfilment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade.

Is worth a load of hay;
A swarm of bees in June
Is worth a silver spoon;
A swarm of bees in July
Is not worth a fly.

Earthquake in Dharamsala?

It seems I slept through a small earthquake this morning. It can't have been much and doesn't seem to have made the news anywhere. But then today, in the world, there were at least 90 earthquakes (measuring more than 1.5 on the Richter scale), with many occurring in the US. In the past week 709 quakes were reported and 2,800 in the past month.

In 1905 in Dharamsala, India's worse modern earthquake occurred, killing around 20,000 people. It measured 7.8 and was felt as far away as in Delhi. It prompted the British to decamp from here and move its administration to Shimla, over 200km away in the east of the state.
