Rajouri, July 2 (ANI): Residents offered prayers for rains at a shrine in Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri District, putting all their hopes on divine intervention.
Situated near to the Line of Control (LoC) between India and Pakistan, the shrine of saint Sain Lal Din at Sorah Pani is said to cure all woes of devotees and fulfil all their wishes.
Devotees from the state and from outside are visiting the shrine with the hope that with god's grace there shall be rain.
"There were prayers especially for the rain and for prosperity in the country. By the grace of god everything will be sorted out and nothing will remain unsolved," said Ali Shah Bokhari, a resident.
Lack of rains has caused concerns among the people across the country. Thus, farmers are desperately seeking divine intervention.
The four-month (June-September) monsoon is the main source of water for irrigation in the country.
Ample rainfall helps agricultural output, which contributes a fifth of the country's gross domestic product. (ANI)
