Rainy Season

The Rainy Season is one of the six seasons in India. It follows the summer season, begining in July and ending in October.

The Rainy Season does a lot of good to us. It removes the heat of summer. It provides water to men and animals. It helps the crops and vegetables to grow. Grass grows in plenty. Hence cows get a lot of grass to graze. People get a lot of milk from their milch cows. In the Rainy Season, rivers are flooded. This causes alluvium to deposit on the land. So, the land becomes fertile. Flood also washes away the filth and rubbish from the village areas. When the flood subsides people grow new crops and vegetables. In the Rainy Season, the earth becomes cool and happy. The waterways are full to the brim. They help the inland trade.

In the Rainy Season, the earth wears a green colour. Trees and creepers are covered with new leaves. Flowers appear on them. The beautiful rainbow is seen in the sky. The sun plays hide-and-seek with the clouds. The sun shines through them and the gray clouds get multicoloured. The boatmen ply their boats across the river. Peacocks dance in the woodland, with their beautiful tails speared like fans behind them.

But during the Rainy Season, sometimes people face a lot of difficulties. Paths become muddy and slippery. During heavy rains, communications are cut off. Some hamlets on the low land get water locked. People cannot go to work. Day labourers cannot earn their bread. Students cannot go to school. Cattle cannot go to graze. Shop-keepers cannot get a purchaser. Excessive rain knocks down the county houses. Some people even die of thunder-stoke. Children suffer from cough and cold. Stomach troubles are very common in this season. Diseases like Cholera break out in many places. Rain brings flood in the rivers. Flood breaks the embankments and sweeps always village after village. A lot of men and cattle are drowned. Flood carries sand to the corn-fields and turns them barren.

But over and above the Rainy Season is the season of crops and vegetables. It is the friend of farmers. It is the friend of trees and animals. It is the maker of food and giver of water. Hence, we revere and welcome this season.
