What is the first thing that comes to your mind when I say the word SEASON?

If you are a ten-year-old then you’ll probably say ‘SUMMER SEASON’, but if you are a cricket fan then your answer might be ‘IPL SEASON’.

What I’m trying to say is that when we say or hear a new word, it’s crucial to understand a particular context in which the word is being used.

अक्सर किसी शब्द का वाक्य में अर्थ इस बात पर निर्भर करता है कि हम उस शब्द का प्रयोग किस situation में कर रहे हैं।

यही कारण है कि एक शब्द का use अलग-अलग तरह की situations में किया जाता है जो कि एक दूसरे से बिलकुल different होती हैं।।

आज हम ऐसे ही एक शब्द-SEASON के different meanings और uses के बारे में सीखेंगे।

WHERE DID ‘SEASON’ CAME FROM?

This word has its roots in the latin word ‘satio’ meaning: the act of sowing seeds.

We can assume that this word is related to the time when people used to sow seeds.

Now, we all know that seeds are sown according to the weather conditions and thus, the very basic definition or meaning of the word season is:

‘the different types of weather patterns that we experience in a single year’

OKAY, done with the basics; let’s explore some more!
