Beating the heat?

What a lovely sunny day yet again…we don’t complain anymore to be honest. WE THE CHENNAITES have gotten used to the sun’s games as we know it. It’s 36ºc today with dry hot wind blowing …feels like living in an oven much. But I’d look ridiculous if you were to look at my present blogging conditions – an air-conditioned room with cold water by my side to hydrate and rehydrate…yet i’m saying this! The real victims are out there on the road , working or playing or doing whatever is to be done despite this heat. At this point the recent heat strokes (sun strokes) have to be mentioned. They took away a few lives on their way. ’tis sad indeed because we aren’t really aware of the coming waves and when we realise , it’s too late. Also ,the little kids get a taste of the heat , fresh as it starts ,due to the reopening of schools around this very time. Therefore the reason for our amazing tans is  explained … *blushes a bit* .But do not sympathize on us just yet 😉 , we chennaites love our summer for various reasons as follows :

Eve of swimming classes :

Although we do have regular swimming classes , those that take place in summers are always memorable. Getting to meet lovely peeps from all places of the city, hardcore training sessions in the scorching sun…they are memorable indeed.

Who needs a swimming pool when we have MARINA?

Yeah..that’s right . Marina is our beautiful beach where people don’t mind spending time despite the heat. You’ll find this beach open till almost 12 a.m. and it’d still be busy. Those merry go rounds , horse riding scenes , youngsters getting drowned (it happens too often these days) , ships sited afar , variety of food stalls (served our way) and of course , the LIGHTHOUSE . This place is a sentimental one for the elderly , the homeless, the young, and the sand artists… (Do visit if you haven’t).

Nature’s remedy :

The tender coconut is such a life saviour on the go…nothing more needs to be said about this self-explanatory element. :’)

The list goes on

  • Longing for cold water baths
  • Eating ice creams everyday to the level of ending up with tonsilitis *Blushes in embarrassment*…
  • Soaking in ones own sweat and entering into a chilled room for the comfort of evaporation ❤
  •  Looking out to wear the least clothing possible…
  • Girls dressed to a level where we doubt them to be terrorists …(i prefer a tan though).
  • Cancellations of every one of a hundred plans just because *It’s too hot yaar*.

HEY , i can go on and on about this. But this year in particular has seen diverse changes in climate all over the world , succeeding the november floods. OH ,who would forget that ‘bridge-submerging’ flood…it changed the lives of many and revealed some strong emotions such as humanity at the time of need , to the extent that The Indian of The Year award was given to the people of Chennai :’)

We do have ups and downs but i strongly believe that out weather would definitely not be the reason for dense migration out of our home town – CHENNAI  ….*Blushes one final time *

– Shreyy , a sincere Chennaite .
