One of the major downsides of monsoon in India is the plethora of diseases it brings along with it. The relief from the staggering heat and lower temperatures are a major reason for diseases like dengue malaria and swine flu to wreck havoc. Currently dengue has gripped the national capital with around 2000 positive cases so far. Another disease that is thriving is swine flu. According to a report in the Times of India two people have tested positive for H1 N1 in Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar each taking the total number of positive cases to 2300 since January this year.
