Status:Rare maybe because this is a crepuscular species and so rarely sighted....found at high noon in a ditch ,may be exhausted or disoriented can't say though twitching a bit....also known to be attracted to light.First record of this species by Fraser in 1920 at Poona.

do Dragonflies come to light?

the evidence is scarce and sketchy.It was the only time I saw a

dragonfly come to light on a windy,rainy night only to vanish

after some time.So where was

the chap headed?The answer

may lie here news.bbc.co.uk/earth/hi/earth_news/newsid_8149000/8149714... seems he was distracted by the light on his journey of 14000 km. back and forth over the Indian Ocean from south india to Africa.
