Residents of Okhla and Delhi are having hard times this summer with the temperature continuing to increase. It has turned out to the hottest summer in decades for Delhi. Worst of all long-hour power cut and water scarcity have made things really difficult for residents. Now all eyes are on the monsoon. If we go by the weather officials at Met then shower is expected on Wednesday and Thursday.
In the morning the weather was pleasant with mild cool wind, but there was no sign of pre-monsoon shower till the filing of the report. Residents continue to battle hot and humid weather, expecting that rain will bring in some respite. In many places prayers are being held for the rain.
Md Rizwan, a sales person, said it is really difficult to go out and find out customers. “This has turned out to be the worst summer in the last decade. The heat is unbearable and the humidity takes out all your energy. People, who do outdoor jobs, are having a tough time.”
And residents get agitated when there is long hour power cut. Battling temperature that for the past several days has stayed above 40 degrees is not easy.
Atif Khan said: “After the prediction of Met we were hopeful that weather would turn pleasant in a few days time. But it appears that residents have to stay with scorching heat for more days.”
