Chasing The Monsoon – Alexander Frater
Ever wondered what it would feel like to experience the magic of monsoons unfold while travelling across India? In 1987, Alexander Frater did just that as he spent two exciting months experiencing the rains and its impact on the lives, economy and the politics of Indians.
