Question

'Sailors took advantage of monsoons winds'. How?


Solution

Traders, in order to reach India, used to explore various sea routes which followed the coasts. Some of them were across Arabian sea and Bay of Bengal where monsoon winds helped in crossing seats fast. So, to reach the western coast of the sub-continent from East Africa or Arabia, the traders opted for sailing with South-West monsoon. Sturdy ships were required for these long journeys.
