The Ant War


Remember this serene setting? Well little did I know this was to be the scene of an all out ant war! We thought the monsoon was finished, but not so. We had major down pours yesterday and today. It rained into our bedroom a bit yesterday, so today I asked Venkatesh to go up and check our window. He said it was strange, there were a bunch of ants on the floor on my side of the bed. ‘How many?’ I said. ‘Oh about seven or so’. At bedtime I went up and there were quite a few, I killed about a dozen – (again, a Jain I’ll never be).  I got into bed and suddenly there were ants crawling up my arm. Of course I freaked, killed another batch of ants and called Venkatesh. This is when he looked under our mattress…

We must have vacuumed up hundreds of ants. It was unlike anything I have ever seen before.
