THARPARKAR: After months of drought the Tharparkar desert finally received rain, Aaj News reported.
The desert had suffered long spells of drought; its people and cattle wasted away as health facilities in the region failed to address malnutrition.

However, after years of hardships rain was welcomed in the desert. Peacocks danced in the wild and children rejoiced.
One of the few fertile deserts, it turned green after rain.
