Earlier this month, two major news stories came out of Odisha, India — a devastating wildfire and a woman rejoicing under the rain in the aftermath.
In early March, the city of Odisha mobilized all of its citizens to lay siege to a raging fire in Similipal National Park. Though the area is accustomed to occasional forest fires during the dry months, this inferno took on a whole new level, causing the government to unleash their disaster task force to join the villagers in their fight.
Panic began to ensue over the safety of local homes and wildlife as the fire raged on for several days.
That’s when nature stepped in with a miracle: It started to rain!
