India- Distribution of rainfall

Monsoon as a Unifying Bond
Northern India enjoys an uniform high temperature due to the Himalayas that protect it from extreme cold winds from central Asia.

The three seas that surround peninsular India helps it to enjoy a uniform moderate climate. Though the Himalayas and the seas provide a unifying bond there are great variations in the temperature throughout India. But the truly unifying influence of the monsoon on the Indian subcontinent is quite noticeable.

The seasonal alteration of the wind systems and weather conditions provide a rhythmic cycle of seasons. Every thing in India, the landscape, its animal and plant life, its agricultural, its people and their festivities, revolve around this phenomenon, called the monsoon.
 

Year after year, people of India from north to south and from east to west, eagerly await the arrival of the monsoon. These monsoon winds are a binding force, for they provide the indispensable water for the Indian nation.
