The rainy season comes after summer, bringing relief to the burning earth scorched in the summer heat. The rains bring the Nature back to life. The soil becomes wet and the leaves of trees soothed and nourished with new drops of water and cool breeze.
Monsoon begins in the middle of June, and continues upto September. During the season, the sky is generally overcast with cloud. Sometimes, rains come along with lightning and thunder. Excessive rains cause flood and absence of rain creates drought. Both flood and drought bring tremendous suffering to the people.
Monsoon is a good season for cultivation. Rains make the earth moist, and so ploughing and sowing of seeds for crops become easy. But in the villages, the roads become muddy. It becomes difficult for the village-folk to walk from one place to another.
The wells, ponds, rivers and canals become full with water. When the low lands are filled with stagnant water, it can bring pollution and diseases to the people. Excessive rain is undesirable. Moderate rains bring peace to the earth.
