What are monsoons;Why Are They Important?

Monsoons are seasonal winds which blow over the Indian Ocean and adjacent lands. The north-east monsoon blows during the winter months from October to March, and the south-west monsoon from April to September.

The north-east monsoon is caused by the cooler air over the land mass of India, passing to an area of lower
pressure over the ocean, which retains its heat longer than the land.
