Coimbatore wears a blue hue as clouds gather over the city.

You don't have to be a poet to understand poetry of monsoon rains. Well it helps, but the refreshing chill is something everyone can feel. It soothes, heals, rejuvenates the senses and makes you go out to meet life, no matter your age.

Monsoon is here! Southern India is already experiencing the blissful drizzle and the showers have made their presence felt in northern parts of the country as well.

The onset of Monsoon in Mumbai is always sudden and perceptible. You will sweat on just the previous day and strong winds and clouds will bring the much-needed respite on the next. What starts is a mayhem that lasts for four months. A Mumbaikar can never hate the rains.

With the rain gods benevolent, a frenzy starts to welcome them. With this, there's also an earnest effort to shield oneself from them, should they rain their fury on earth. Seen here are fishermen in Kochi moving their boats to safety.

 

Nature doesn't discriminate. It's bounty as well as its fury is for all.

Before the monsoons rain down earnestly, clouds are often the happy heralds. Monsoons are yet to cover the entire country, but changes in weather can be felt in northern India. New Delhi and surrounding areas have received spells of rains in the last few days.
