“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.
- Spring-Vasant Ritu (Mid February to April)
- Summer -Grishma Ritu-(April till June)
- Monsoon– Varsha Ritu-(June-August and in South India-October-December)
- Autumn– Sharad Ritu-(Mid August to September)
- Pre-winter– Hemant Ritu-(Mid October to December)
- 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.
