Of mon­soon and mu­sic

Down to Earth - - ON THE WEB -

It was an ex­tra­or­di­nary evening de­voted to the southwest mon­soon. DownTo Earth brought to­gether peo­ple from dif­fer­ent fields, in­clud­ing sci­en­tists and civil so­ci­ety groups, to un­der­stand the com­plex phe­nom­e­non that brings life­giv­ing rains to the In­dian Sub­con­ti­nent. Mag­a­zine ed­i­tor and host of the evening Su­nita Narain noted that the mon­soon is In­dia's real fi­nance min­is­ter . But the evening's stars were Man­ga­niar mu­si­cians from the Thar who ser­e­naded the au­di­ence with tra­di­tional rain songs.
