Moolathara tragedy, 5 years ago
It was again a Sunday on November 9th 2009. It was raining all the way from 8th November. Hardly did anyone think the tragedy that could struck them. Earlier the day Moolathara Dam regulator-cum-bridge broke away due to heavy rain waters gushing into it from Aliyar. Though this was not a major setback as it happened in 1992 (If I remember correctly there were human casualties too then), lot of farmers had to give up their cultivable land to river in Chittur.
