Lightning strikes about 5,00,000 times during the monsoon
The term ‘monsoon’ does not mean rain, actually, it refers to the strong winds that blow from cold to hot places
During summers when the central and northern parts of India get very hot, monsoon (winds) blows over the Indian Ocean towards these areas. On the way they absorb water from the Indian Ocean and once they reach the southern tip of India they hit the mountains. That is when the splash of water begins!
The term ‘monsoon’ comes from the Arabic ‘mausim’ that means season or a shift in wind
Officially, the last day of monsoon is typically 30th of September
