2. UDGAM SCHOOL FOR CHILDREN www.udgamschool.com UDGAM SCHOOL FOR CHILDREN After the hot and humid summer it is highly unlikely for any of us to be happy to see the rains actually go away. Even on certain days when we are soaked to the skin, we welcome the downpour. Kids are the happiest during rainy season and will definitely find a puddle to splash in. 3. UDGAM SCHOOL FOR CHILDREN www.udgamschool.com Along with fun and relief, rains also bring illnesses. Children fall prey to monsoon related diseases as immunity levels are low. Good hygiene and proper precautions go a long way in preventing these maladies. 4.

Early precautions can prevent this common affliction to some extent. 5.
