Rain is caused by condensing water vapor in the air. The heat of the sun rays raises the temperature of the water on the earth. Thus, water starts evaporating and fills vapor in the atmosphere with. This vapor forms the clouds that give us rain.
The south-west monsoon wind causes heavy rainfall in India. Sometimes the rain is accompanied with lightning and storms.
Enjoyment: The rains provide relief from heat. Youngsters and poets enjoy the season. It is the time for indoor games, story-reading and story-telling. It is also the season for umbrellas and waterproofs. The temperature remains pleasant during the monsoon.
The monsoon is especially suitable for palatable dishes like ‘Khichuri’, a mixture of rice and pulses boiled with spices.
Importance: In India, we get rainfall for around 3-4 months. The agriculture of our country mainly depends upon water from rainfall. During this season, the ground water is replenished. The wells, lakes, ponds and reservoirs are filled with rain water. Without rain-water, these lands would turn into barren deserts.
The coming of the monsoons signals a relief from the scorching summer heat. Holding the hands of the summer comes the monsoons. The monsoon season starts mid June and continues till September. Dark and gloomy skies are a common sight during the monsoons, which only signify the much awaited rainfall. Though the rains disrupts our daily schedule and causes inconveniences at times, the monsoon season is always welcome.

At the onstart of the monsoons, people are seen to excavate their umbrellas, raincoats and gumboots. Students are seen scurrying to school with the colourful raincoats and umbrellas and seem very excited at times to have a shower in the rain. Office goers are seen hurrying to office to be able to reach on time. Sometimes when there is very heavy rainfall, life comes to a standstill during the monsoons season. Traffic jams, flooded lanes and bylanes, people and children waddling in the floods are a common sight in the monsoon season. Sometimes it is beautiful to watch children floating paper boats in the flooded waters. Most of all, a 'rainy day' holiday is always welcome in this season.

The monsoon season is a blessing for the farmers across the country as well as for agriculture. Farmers across the country await the monsoons as the monsoons rains are very important for the growth of crops. During the monsoon the fields, crops, trees and plants come alive. The whole of nature comes to life in a 'sea of green' during the monsoons. It is vital that the rains come in time or else delayed monsoons may cause drought; and farming also gets affected. Despite modern methods of farming, the monsoon rains are a reservoir for the farmers and his fields, which inturn is the source of our sustenance. A variety of plants, vegetables and crops grow in the monsoons. Beautiful flowers also blossom in this time. Dry rivers are filled by the rains that are a source of water for many across the country.

Every year, we wait for the monsoon forecast from the weather department. Our heart gets filled with joy when we get the news of adequate monsoon.
Rain is of immense value to the cultivators. The greatest boon of the monsoon is the rich cultivation of crops. The tillers of land sow the seeds or plants as soon the rain makes the fields soft. Constant natural watering leads to their quick growth. During the period of adequate monsoon, we get good agricultural output.
But in cases of floods, the crops go under the water and are destroyed.
Problems: During monsoon season, people also face many difficulties. However, heavy down-pours choke the drains of the cities. The drainage system in our country is not adequate to drain away the rain-water completely. The ditches besides the roads start overflowing.
