Monsoon season is a special time in India. It’s the time when the rains come after a long, hot summer. For many, it’s a time to relax and enjoy the cooler weather. But for me, the monsoon season has always been a time of nostalgia. I have so many memories of the monsoon season, from my childhood in Kerala to my more recent years in Mumbai. In this blog post, I want to share some of my favourite memories of the monsoon season. From playing in the rain to eating delicious food, monsoon season is a time that I always look back on with fondness.

Monsoon in Mumbai is one of the most magical times of the year. The rains bring relief from the heat, and the city comes alive with colour and life. Monsoon is also a time for celebration, as the rains bring new life to the land. Here are some of our favourite monsoon memories from Mumbai:

  • The sound of the rain on the tin roofs
  • The smell of wet earth and rain-washed streets
  • Dancing in the rain
  • Splashing in puddles

  • Watching the thunder and lightning from our balconies

Monsoon in Mumbai is always a special time. The rains bring the city to life, and there is something about the weather that just makes everything feel more magical. I have so many wonderful memories of monsoons in Mumbai, and it’s definitely one of my favourite times of the year.

One of my favourite things about monsoons in Mumbai is the smell of rain on the pavement. It’s such a unique scent, and it always takes me back to childhood summers spent running around in the rain. I also love how green everything gets during the monsoon – it’s like the city transforms into a jungle for a few months.

Of course, no discussion of monsoons in Mumbai would be complete without mentioning the food. There are so many delicious snacks and dishes that are only available during the rainy season, and I always look forward to indulging in them. From pakoras to vada pav, there’s nothing quite like enjoying some comfort food while watching the rain pour down outside.

Monsoon in Kerala is a magical time. The air is heavy with the scent of rain and the sound of thunder echoes through the hills. The rains bring new life to the land and the people. Monsoon is a time for celebration in Kerala.

The monsoon season in Kerala lasts from June to September. During this time, the state is lush and green, and the rivers are full of water. The rains bring relief from the heat and humidity of summer.

People celebrate monsoons with festivals and feasts. Onam is the biggest festival in Kerala, and it falls during the monsoon. Onam celebrates the harvest season and commemorates the homecoming of King Mahabali. People decorate their homes with flowers and wear new clothes to mark the occasion.

Monsoon is also a time for food lovers. The rains make all kinds of fruits and vegetables available in abundance. There are special dishes made with fresh produce that are only available during monsoon.

Monsoon in Goa

There’s something about the monsoon that just makes it special. Maybe it’s the weather, or maybe it’s the memories that we associate with it. Whatever the reason, the monsoon is a truly magical time of year.

For me, the monsoon brings back memories of childhood holidays in Goa. We would spend lazy days lounging around on the beach, playing in the waves and building sandcastles. As the sun started to set, we would light fires on the beach and roast marshmallows. Those were some of the best times of my life.

Even now, as an adult, I can’t resist spending a few days in Goa during the monsoon. There’s something about those rainy days that just make me feel happy and nostalgic. If you’ve never experienced the monsoon in Goa, I highly recommend it!
