Monsoons of India – Monsoon Photography

Monsoons are very special in India. More so because it is essential to bring a good harvest, to bear fruits after the rain and to cool down the atmosphere. The monsoon season is very marked in India unlike other regions in the West. We have many festivals related to Monsoons. We celebrate the birth of Lord Krishna during Monsoons. We have Monsoon ragas. songs written as an ode to them. And it is almost time to bid farewell to the monsoons in India. So as an ode to bid adieu to the rains – we present some excellent Monsoon photography to help you enjoy your Weekend!

Monojit Mondol


Hello, my name is Monojit from Kolkata and a research scholar at IIT Kharagpur. The monsoon of India is the most creative time in all along. The drenched dark road, the deep green washed leaves, the smell of the rain and the entire moods of this season is so meaningful and full of candidness. The images depicted two different feelings of that. Also in this time to catch the moments in camera is also thrilling.
