Indian Monsoon Clouds and Rain

Indian Monsoon Clouds and Rain. photo by N Gopakumaran Nair. The magic of the monsoon season has fascinated people from the earliest times to the present day. Why not join the gang? No, the rains don't lash down all day long. There will be heavy rain for about an hour or two and afterwards lots of warm Kerala sunshine when you can catch up on your sun tan, lounge by the pool or do some sightseeing. The Indian Monsoon Clouds and Rain - More photo from all parts of India will be published soon. Monsoon Rain and Rain Water

Ever since my early childhood days in Vaikom Kottayam Dist. Kerala (where I grew up in a rural village) called thottakom I had been fascinated by the monsoon rains. The southwest monsoon is generally expected to begin around the first week of June. It is said that it begins first in the coastal state of Kerala and moves upwards. The monsoon accounts for 80 percent of the rainfall in the country. Indian agriculture (which accounts for 25 percent of the GDP and employs 70 percent of the population) is heavily dependent on the monsoon rains, especially crops like cotton, rice, oilseeds and coarse grains. A delay of a few days in the arrival of the monsoon can, and does, badly affect the economy. I like the monsoon clouds, they amaze me.

A monsoon is a seasonal prevailing wind that lasts for several months. The term was first used in English in India,Bangladesh, Pakistan, and neighboring countries to refer to the big seasonal winds blowing from the Indian Oceanand Arabian Sea in the southwest bringing heavy rainfall to the area.
