The rainy season, also known as the monsoon season, arrives in India around mid-June and lasts until late August/early September. The main characteristics of this season are heavy, continuous rains and humid weather. Despite the high humidity, the refreshing rains provide welcome relief from the burning heat.
When it rains, dried, lifeless ponds and puddles come to life once more. Rivers are flowing at full capacity once again, and birds are chirping all day. Rains have been the land’s favorite season from the dawn of time. It provides enough food for plants and wildlife to withstand the rigors of dry, barren summers and severe, frigid winters. During this time of year, flowers bloom in all their glory, while crop roots take up water.
Pre-monsoon rains, which occur before the official start of the monsoon season, are referred to by various names in different parts of the nation. In Karnataka, they are called “mango showers” because they aid in the early ripening of the luscious fruit.
Rainfall intensity is not consistent, rather it is strewn around haphazardly. Rainfall is most in locations like Cherrapunji, whereas it is sparse in the Thar Desert of Rajasthan. Numerous factors, such as the location of mountain ranges and the direction of monsoon winds, impact rainfall distribution.
The monsoon season is not without its drawbacks, and the monsoon season is no exception. During this season, diseases like dengue fever and malaria are common. Floods such as the Kedarnath flood in Uttarakhand have been caused by excessive rainfall. Nonetheless, the Rainy Season’s beauty and ecstasy are far more enchanting and engulfing, and mankind as a whole appreciates Mother Nature’s effort.
