Monsoons: Arrived On Time!

Its a breathtaking sight from the seashore.

As far as the eye can see, a massive wall of dark grey clouds silently approaching the Kerala coast, bringing in a season of torrential rains. It is an event carefully monitored by the Met Department, for, in these clouds, hangs the fate of agricultural production in much of the Indian subcontinent.

Here are some pics from Valiyathura Pier in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala -
