The boiling heat this year has truly touched an all time high of 47 degrees in the capital and so on Wednesday an orange alert was declared in the city!

A severe heat wave has been declared all over northern and central India and the onset of monsoon will also be delayed by 6 days *sob* and relief from the searing heat is only anticipated around 27th to 31st May.

Until then it's better to take precautions and step out of the house only with a chilled Lassi, Jaljeera or a Lemonade in tow and lots of sunscreen!
