“No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace as I have seen in one autumnal face.” John Donne

Autumn is typically seen in Northern India especially north of Delhi.

I can say the rest of the country mostly misses this beautiful transformation of Mother Nature.

Indian Meteorological department describes just 4 seasons for India (Spring, summer, rainy & winter), while Hindu scriptures classify  6 Indian Seasons.

There can be a little overlapping of the months in different parts of the country.

  1. Spring-Vasant  Ritu (Mid February to April)
  2. Summer -Grishma Ritu-(April till June)
  3. Monsoon– Varsha Ritu-(June-August and in South India-October-December)
  4. Autumn– Sharad Ritu-(Mid August to September)
  5. Pre-winter– Hemant Ritu-(Mid October to December)
  6. Winter-Shishir Ritu-(January and February)

In Autumn, we are aware that leaves fall of the trees and trees start bursting into a riot of colours.

In my part of the country not much happens. I am sad.

” Be your own colour,no matter what the rest of the world looks like”  unknown
“The fallen flower strewn on paved paths,invariably remind me of everything,that I have ever dreamt to be,for although they’ve fallen,they’ve not ceased to serve their purpose,they still glorify and ornament,not the tree from where they fell,but the road on which they fell” Shinjini


“Be like a tree and let the dead leaves drop” Rumi
