                         complex topographic region (elevation>500m) of India to evaluate 
                         and to better understand the satellite behavior in contrast with a 
                         fat region (FR) (elevation<500m) of central India from 1998 to 
                         2016 using the combinatory data sets of TMPA and IMERG (satellite 
                         rainfall estimation). The categorical Intra Seasonal Oscillations 
                         (ISO) of Indian summer monsoon (ISM) namely, Madden Julian 
                         Oscillation (MJO) and Quasi Bi-Weekly Oscillation (QBWO) are 
                         tested in satellite and India Meteorological Department (IMD) 
                         gridded rainfall data sets to fnd out the satellite performance. 
                         As the accurate estimation of rainfall from satellites over higher 
                         elevation zones is challenging, here we propose a new perspective 
                         to select the rainfall products of satellite for better comparison 
                         with ground measurements. Considering the satellites best 
                         capability in detecting the cold clouds resulting from deep 
                         convection and its coupling with higher-level circulation, we show 
                         that the rainfall from satellites yield fruitful comparison with 
                         ground measurements when moist static stability, tropical easterly 
                         jet is above the climatological values.",
