Namaskaar fellow Indianers,

I just booked a trip to BOM in early July.

Then I recalled the occurrence of the monsoon.

Shall (...) UTAette be asking for a divorce two days into the trip ?

Probably, providing she hasn't asked for it long before then ......  Silly

South India is not too bad during the monsoon, although it can get rather wet. But it's not as if it's raining 24/7. temperatures are much nicer than in May/June.

It must rain in Ireland, just think of it as warm rain.

Pack an umbrella  Silly

Indianers,

It's Indians, not Indianers  Smile

Actually June is just the start of the monsoons, so you should be OK except if you're in Kerala. The monsoon starts at the south west coast, and then works it way into the country in a north east direction. Hence it's a while before it reaches north India, though S. W. India is the first to be hit.

The monsoon rains can be quite different from the standard rain I've seen in the UK/US (which tends to be rather light and goes on for extended periods). The Indian monsoon tends to be heavy and goes on for a long time. Not the kind of rain where you can walk around with an umbrella or a light coat. And drainage systems tend to buckle during the monsoon - which means that you often have to wade through substantial amounts of water  Smile

That's more in Europe. I know in Texas we got big fat rain like that.

It's true though, in the monsoon, when it decides to rain, they really mean it. But that does not mean that you will get that. Don't expect much sun though.

BTW, if you are planning to go in a nice hotel, like an Oberoi or Welcomegroup, they generally build things not to flood. But I would not go to the cheap places.
