The reader will find here an account of how the genesis of the monsoon was traced with constant level balloons during the Monsoon Experiment of 1979: how weather satellites are used to locate cyclonic storms over the Indian ocean, and, finally, how the climate of the Rajasthan desert may be made more friendly. This book, which has now been updated for the fourth time, raises quite a few topical concerns related to atmosphere too and should be of interest to all who would like to know more about the monsoon, which is so much a part of our national life and heritage.
