Across the vast swathe of states and geographical landmarks in India, climate and weather conditions run the gamut from the frigid mountains in the Himalayas to the humid forests of Kerala. Spring, Summer, Monsoon, Autumn and winter are the five standard climatological seasons in India.

The spring season typically begins in March and lasts until the end of April. It is the symbol of euphoria, the festival of Vasant Panchami and Holi. The sun shines brightly all day long, greenery is found everywhere, new flowers bloom everywhere, all plants and trees grow new leaves. The sound of birds chirping is the most pleasurable. The spring season in India is indeed the merriest part of the year.

This season follows the spring season, typically beginning from May and ending in June. The summer season in India is the best season for fruits such as mangoes, oranges, peach, watermelons, and other tasty fruits that people love to eat.

The monsoon season in India usually starts from June and lasts till Mid-September. Cold winds run everywhere, crops flit in the fields, the faces of farmers begin to glow. Frogs croak in rainwater, farmers go out with their bullocks to plough their fields, nature seems to be very pleasant, cattle graze the fields with pleasure, peacocks dance after the rain, etc and many other beautiful things happen during this season.

This season starts from September end and lasts till November. The weather remains pleasant and the opportunity is ripe to explore the hotter parts of India.
