I was lucky to be in Kerala around the same time the monsoon of 2018 reached Kerala. The IMD said that it was 3 days early and it coincided with the exact mid month of the Malayalam Calendar (Malayalam the main language spoken and used in Kerala state) that is also used in Kerala. Why is that important? Because the onset of what we call Monsoon is English is called Edavapaathi Mazha or the Rain the middle of the month of edavam in the Malayalam.
