Words of Wonder by Khushwant Singh
To know India and her peoples,
one has to know the monsoon.
It is not enough to read about it in books,
or see it on the cinema screen, or hear someone talk about it.
It has to be a personal experience
because nothing short of living through it
can fully convey all it means to a people
for whom it is not only the source of life,
but also their most exciting impact with nature.
