Give reasons as to why the bulk of rainfall in India is concentrated over a few months.

The Deccan Plateau and parts of Madhya Pradesh also receive some amount of rain in spite of lying in the rain shadow are. The maximum rainfall of this season is received in the north-eastern part of the country. Mawsynram in the southern ranges of the Khasi hills receives the highest average rainfall in the world. Rainfall in the Ganga valley decreases from the east to the west. Rajasthan and parts of Gujarat gets scanty rainfall.
