In a recent breakthrough in Manipal Institute of Technology, a student of the GeoEngineering Department (coming up), Shiva Balath has claimed to have devised a weather manipulation system, to alter the weather in the Western Ghats. “Weather manipulation has always intrigued me. Ever since the plane crashed over the ash cloud at Sutta point, I have been doing research on controlling the weather around our quaint little town of Manipal.”
On asking about the kind of research he has been doing Shiva said “I started a search to find out that if the weather could be manipulated and with what accuracy. There was evidence that artificial rains could be created, but huge cloudburst which could bring massive floods and that too in a desired region or area was a fanciful idea. After that I hit upon a website and was amazed to find out that it is possible. But the information given in the website under “weather manipulation” is technical and sketchy.”
Close friends of Shiva, however confirmed that ever since he finished with his examinations in late May, this year, Shiva has been keeping to himself and working on a huge apparatus, that looks like a cross between a land tipper and a garbage collection truck.
