2. In the summer season, the north Indian lands witness hot and dusty winds. These are termed as loo. They cause dust storms, which are experienced at least once in the daytime.

3. India receives most of its rainfall from the southwest monsoon. It has two branches: the one originating from the Arabian Sea and the other originating from the Bay of Bengal.
