Water is one of the most important elements on this planet as it plays a vital role in sustaining life. Without water, there is simply no life.
Although three-fourths of the planets is covered with water, most of it is undrinkable seawater full of salt and other minerals. Like humans and animals, most plants (except for sea weeds and other marine plants) also cannot survive on seawater as their cells are only equipped to deal with fresh water.
As a result, rain is very important for all living beings on this planet. In India, farmers still depend on rains to grow their crops and vegetables. So if somehow the rain fails so does their crops, and this in turn affects the country’s overall economy.
Apart from this, in India rains also provides relief from the scorching summers. However, as the old saying goes: “Everything in excess is bad,” too much rainfall also causes damage like floods, landslides and disesase.
