Entry Description:

The first clouds of the summer monsoon approach India's coastline in Pondicherry. The torrential rainstorms often cause violent landslides; entire villages have been swept away. Despite this destruction, farmers depend on the rains to irrigate their land, and a large amount of India’s electricity is generated by water power provided by the monsoon rains.
