The Monsoon affects almost half the people on our planet. For months, there is no rain. Then, too much rain. Day after day, wallowing in filthy water to my chest, I began to learn patience.

Half the world's people survive at the whim of the monsoon winds. This is the reality and it will stay with me forever. Steve McCurry
