Rain at Sri Vilas

Welcome to Sri Vilas during the South West Monsoon (rainy) season. This constitutes the second discernable season that we have here in South India, specifically Kerala. It's only just begun, Monsoon 2009, and as you can see, it's already pretty intense. It's only going to get heavier and heavier from this point on.

There's a brief lull in the force of this rain, as I write this post, but I'm no fool. Sure, I may only be the occasional visitor to Sri Vilas from back when I was still in school, but I've been here during the rains before to know that this is by no means anywhere near what the Monsoons can dish out in all their glory.

However, it's truly a sight to behold! The sheer volume of water that ends up pouring down on us is unfathomable. Sure weather reports talk about inches and centimeters of rain, but when you're on the receiving end it's all the same, wet story. Ah...rain. Glorious rain.
