In December 2013, I collected black rain water. At first, I thought it might be dirt splashing from the ground which caused the dark colour. But there was not as much dirt since the ground was cemented, swept and it had rained the previous day. It could not be due to the dirty roof because the previous day’s rain must have also washed it clean.
I thus concluded that it must be black rain.

If anybody knows anything about black rain, please share your knowledge with me and others. And for those who would like to do some tests on the water, I kept a little sample of it with me.
