The climate stayed hot for several months. The water in the lakes dried up. The town was suffering from drought. Due to water scarcity, the cost of bottled water shot up. Every drop of water became precious. People started using water with stinginess as if it were gold. The trees withered, the plants perished and the sparrows died due to lack of water. One day, a miracle happened. Dark clouds appeared over the town. The peacocks, having an instinct to predict rain, opened their feathers and started dancing. Minutes later, the much awaited rain ended the drought in the town.
