There is great diversity in the climatic conditions due to location, extent and relief features.
But these diversities are subdued by the monsoons, which prevails over the whole country.
These monsoons are active for just three to four months and rest of the year India remains almost thirsty.
This water scarcity is felt all over the country.
Thus the arrival of the monsoon is most welcome; it changes the Indian landscape, gives impetus to agricultural activities, the total life of the Indian people revolves around the monsoons, including festivals.
