    Commercially viable rain making technology doesn’t exist anywhere in the world. Do Thailand engineers know more than the scientists?

    Please try this rainmaking technology as long as it doesn't involve spending more than praying to rain gods because the likely return on any investment is 0%

    Ideal opportunity for Sri Lanka's politicians to make a good fortune. Because even the Auditor General cannot check the balance sheet - how much was spent and how much was received. Our guys are genius!

    if all the other options are exhausted, trying this method doesn't hurt. Thailand helped Australian State of Queensland in 2011 with this method and bought rains. The eventual rains were so severe that it ended in devastating floods too. You have to prepare for flooding as well , if you are going to try this method. Good luck Sri Lanka.

    No ...if all else fails just pray to the rain god's....look to your horoscope,do a rain dance or ask God for divine intervention all are equally worthless .Seeding cloud is just to be seen to be doing something .In the near future wars will be fought for control of water ....look what Ethiopia is doing to the Nile
