Monsoon in India

Monsoon, derived from the Arabic word "Mawsim" meaning "season", although
generally defined as a system of winds characterized by a seasonal reversal of
its direction.

A Monsoon of the Indian subcontinent is among several geographically
distributed observations of global monsoon taking place in the Indian
subcontinent. In the subcontinent, it is one of oldest weather observations, an
economically important weather pattern and the most anticipated weather
event and unique weather phenomenon.

The unique geographical features of the subcontinent, along with associated
atmospheric, oceanic and geophysical components, are extremely influential in
ensuring the anticipated behaviour for a monsoon in South Asia and the Indian
subcontinent. Due to its effect on agriculture, flora and fauna and the general
weather of India among other economic, social and environmental effects, a
monsoon is one of the most anticipated, followed and studied weather
phenomena of the Indian subcontinent.
