Monsoon's showers

I took this picture last Sunday morning in Delhi, the rain was becoming very strong however there was a very long line of pilgrims in that street.

People were waiting in order to worship in a temple nearby and they were enjoying the first showers of the monsoon.


Monsoon is here, earliest in 108 years, a good two weeks ahead of the normal date in Delhi.

The city received 30.3 mm of rain on Sunday, the total rainfall till now in June has been 34.8 mm.

The rainfall brought down the heat by 11 degree Celsius (28.5°).

The monsoon is now advancing rapidly, covering the entire country.


Most of the people over here are happy, they find the monsoon season very romantic...
