If the eastern winds are strong, they bring good rains from the Bay of Bengal; whereas if the south-west monsoon prevails, the rain is comparatively late and light. Sometimes a good supply comes in from both seas, and then the fall is larger than in the eastern districts; but it is usually much less.
