Seasons in India

Seasons in India

It is common to say that there are 4 seasons (Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter). However such simplification hides the seasonal variety in various geographies.

Focusing on India, what is being taught and what is being experienced does not always match. India does have Monsoon as a distinct season. And Autumn and Winter are actually split across three seasons.

My attempt to present all the seasons aka Ritu in a simple manner that is easy to relate to and recall as the image above.
