Usually the arrival of the rains - the 'burst of the monsoon' as it is called - comes to the south of India during late May or early June. In some years, the rains will be torrential; in other years they may be light or locally variable, in which case the monsoon will be said to have 'failed'. Results for food crops can, of course, be disastrous, so the people of India pray for the coming of the rains each year.
In this painting Pollyanna has imagined one of the tigers she sketched in India gazing up into the torrents of water falling from the skies on the first day of the monsoon.
