When Peacocks Dance

Writings on the Monsoon

Overview

Who can suppress excitement at the first sighting of looming monsoon clouds? Who can deny the joyful prospect of relief from the unrelenting heat of an Indian summer? The season draws every corner of our vast, diverse country together—regardless of what we call it, how we deal with it or where we live, we all understand the monsoon. In this anthology, Juhi Sinha celebrates the monsoon with monsoon recipes and festivals from different parts of the country, and fiction and poetry both modern and historical. With Khushwant Singh, Ruskin Bond and Rabindranath Tagore; the Meghaduta, the Ramayana and the Rig Veda; and, of course, Alexander Frater, this book is the perfect medley to bring the rains alive anytime and anywhere.
