It's raining buckets inside airport

Dum Dum: If Calcutta airport was waiting for a watershed moment in its long history of embarrassments, it came on Thursday morning through a leaking roof.
Even the business class lounge in the international section of the terminal wasn't spared the ignominy of buckets and baggage tubs laid out on the floor to catch rainwater dripping down the high ceiling.
As the intensity of the downpour increased, sofas in the lounge were pushed around as if they were players in a merry-go-round where one drop on the upholstery would lead to elimination.
In bay number 16, a cascade at the entry to the aerobridge welcomed passengers boarding a Thai Airways flight to Bangkok.
