As Tamil Nadu rains wreak havoc across the state, life in Chennai has come to a standstill with flooded streets, floating vehicles, closed schools, fallen trees and severely-affected transport system.
The continuous downpour has partially submerged Chennai and claimed 71 lives. Water logging has attained new heights, high enough to become a trending topic on Twitter.
Most photographers do not feel comfortable in taking photographs in bad weather, especially when vast areas virtually went under water. But, this devastating rain provided the perfect opportunity for some to capture photos that prove how life survives despite all hardships.
