The season is coming to an end after a delay of almost a fortnight.
Usually, the Monsoon rains stop in early September, and withdraws completely from the grain bowl belt of northwest India by the middle of the month.
But this year, the withdrawal was delayed due to a late revival of rains, causing floods in some parts of the region.
Even in the national capital, it is a pleasant, breezy morning with the minimum temperature recorded at 24.2 degrees Celsius.
Monsoon rains are vital because more than half of India's farmland lacks irrigation, and the farm sector accounts for 14 per cent of the national economy.
