The #monsoon doesn’t just affect traffic but also affects the Stock Market. How? Keep reading the thread! ⛈️

When the monsoon comes, their income increases and so does their purchasing power 💰
The rural population is able to purchase more FMCG products, for e.g. biscuits, sodas, instant noodles.

Companies like Hindustan Unilever, Dabur, Godrej enjoy gains as they enjoy the increased incomes of the rural population

Where rain drops part ways: Ever thought of a place where monsoon rain drops after hitting ground say good bye and commence their journey separately. @IfsMadhu shares the picture of such a place here 1/n #Monsoon #rain #india @KarnatakaWorld @tourismgoi @TheWesternGhat #stories Image
Rain drops say good bye to each other to race to seas in two separate destinations .Yes, there exists many such locations in the Western Ghats of India. A ridge on Bisile Ghat in Sakleshpur in Hassan district in Karnataka divides the rain water flowing in the region 2/n
between the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal. Rain drops on the ridge hit the ground to flow to various streams in the Ghat which then link up with rivers before ending their journey either in the Arabian Sea in the west or Bay of Bengal Bengal in the east. 3/n

@pabsgill Unlike the first wave where the economy came to standstill under a national wide lockdown, the impact on economic activity is expected to be relatively contained in the #SecondWave with restrictions on mobility being regionalised and nuanced: Shaktikanta Das.

👉What is Monsoon?

👉Why Kerala Receives First Rain?

👉When Does IMD Declare Onset?…

(📸: Jipson Sikhera/TOI, BCCL, Kochi)
@MrigDixit For centuries, winds have played a crucial role in almost all voyages navigating long distances through rough seas. One such seasonal wind that sailors historically used to reach India was the #Monsoon.
@MrigDixit As it implies from its likely origin from the Arabic word Mawsim, the monsoon is nothing but a periodic seasonal wind. It is the dominant feature of India’s climate, which brings around 80% of the total precipitation across the country.

Engineering a City #thread
Having spent my entire childhood in #Kochi (#Cochin ), it feels criminal to not know the story of how the city came to be the #metropolis it is today. Putting together a thread to trace the journey of the city which has been so endearingly mine (1)
Part 1: The #Malabar Mud-Banks
The story of Cochin is not just about how an engineering marvel can change social fabric, but also of many tenets of #British #Colonialism in India which is often taken for granted, passed off lazily as exploitation, missing nuance (2)
As with any coastal town, the cultural and economic history of Kochi is intertwined with maritime trade routes since the time of the Early Romans and Arabs. Thanks to the #biennale , most of us would now be familiar with the term #Muzuris (3)
