This is cyclone season for the eastern coasts of India. And this year is no different. Super cyclone Amphan is expected to make landfall soon. Winds have been howling at excessive speeds, seas have been experiencing exceptionally high tides and the skies are regularly being lit up with thunder and lightning, almost as a prelude to what lies in wait.
