"All the mud houses in our village have broken down. Till now also, many areas are submerged in floodwater."
Villagers say they’re frustrated that officials have not visited the area.
[Mukesh Makwana, Indrana Village Resident]: (male Hindi)
"All the villages are submerged in water. The situation was so bad that we complained to the collector and councilor but nobody has come here to help us."
The heavy downpours have raised the water levels of the nearby rivers.
While a good monsoon is important to India's agriculture, heavy rains and runoff also leads to floods and outbreaks of diseases.
The monsoon this year has caused heavy floods in parts of India, causing heavy devastation to life and property.
