Seasons in India – Essay 1.
Seasons refer to the different times of the year that are precipitated by a difference in climate, weather and therefore the activities that people can engage in also differ.
There are 4 (four) different seasons in India v.i.z., Winter, Summer, Monsoon (rainy season), and Autumn – each coming at a particular time of the year.
Seasons in India
- Winter is one of the seasons in India, which sets in around the months of December, January and February. This is the coldest season and therefore people wear warm clothes.
- Summer, also called the pre-monsoon season, is another famous season that starts from March and goes on through April and May. This is the hottest season in India especially during the last month of the season. This is the case at least for the great majority of the inside.
- Monsoon rainy season is the third season in India going from June through to September. This season’s most part is humid southwest monsoon. This weather gradually moves across the whole of India. In this season, the south east part of India experiences more rain.
- Post monsoon season is also referred to as the autumn season. It is the final season in the cycle starting from October to November. This season comes with a lot of cloudlessness particularly for the northwest side.
Seasons in India are the most anticipated occasions as they are used to capitalize on the different activities for the different times of the year.

Seasons in India – Essay 1.
Taking into accounts variations in the elements of climate, i.e. changes in air temperature, amount of rainfall, changes of air current, etc., the climate of India can be classified into 4 (four) seasons, such as:
1. Summer (from March to May): During the three months from March to May it is summer in most parts of India. From the beginning of March as the Sun after crossing the equator, approaches the Tropic of Cancer, the temperature increases. Generally, the northern part of India experiences very experiences high temperature during May, while April is the hottest month in southern India. The normal temperature recorded in this time in generally 30°C. But, at some places in the plateau region the temperature rises to 40°C and in the Himalayan mountain region, it remains near about 20°C.
2. Rainy season (June to September): The rainy season in India begins generally from the second week of June and continues up to the second week of October. From the second week of June humid monsoon enters various parts of India in the south-west direction from the Bay of Bengal and causes rainfall everywhere in the state. The south-west monsoon causes heavy rainfall. The Northern states of India generally receives less rainfall than the south Indian states.
3. Autumn season (from October to November): From the beginning of October, monsoon begins to recede from this country and consequently rainfall becomes frequent. So this period is also called the “season of return Monsoon” or the “Post-monsoon”. The sky generally remains clear in most parts of the country. Though the rainy season is no longer there, yet, due to the cyclone coming from the Bay of Bengal, occasionally violent storms and rainfall are observed.
4. Winter season (from December to February): During the period from December to February there is winter season in India. In this time the sun exists just above the Tropic of Capricorn and sunlight falls obliquely on various places of India and as a result temperature begins to decrease. The temperature is lowest during the months of January and February. Also during this time clouds and dry North-East Monsoon passes over different regions of India and temperature is decreased considerably. But in Himalayan area the temperature is much lower (between 5°C and 10°C). But sometimes cyclone (coming from the West) causes storm and rainfall which is known as Western disturbance.
Note: The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has also specified four seasons in India, viz, summer, rainy, autumn, and winter (source: wikipedia). However, astronomical and other traditions of India divides the twelve calendar month into six seasons, viz, summer, rainy, early autumn, late autumn, winter, and spring.
