Tej, where do you live now? I am in Florida and although our summers don't qualify as monsoon seasons, we have almost daily rains. Mostly storms or heavy downpours. Not the gentle rain that is so calming.
I don't fare well in dry weather. Doesn't agree with my constitution or my personality. I love heat, humidity, and rain - well, I don't like day-long rains. I like rain to come and go, leaving its refreshment behind.
We've had a few prolonged droughts during the many years I've lived in Florida and I dislike them so much - physically and emotionally.
