In a narrow bell across southern Asia stretching from central India to the Philippines there seems to be no unique association between rainfall and Warm Events in the Southern Oscillation. In this area there are marked long term trends in the rainfall, and the Warm Events an inclined to fall in wet years when the period is generally wet and in dry years when the period is generally dry.
