Sun is furious here. Very, very furious.
Summer breeze isn’t around anymore.
This summer isn’t like the previous ones. Like when you can enjoy an afternoon stroll with gentle summer breeze or even when days were hot, the cool summer nights would dry off the sweat and pushes the mercury down on scales.
But not this time!
Since last week, mercury level isn’t falling down on the gauges. Every new day is making the residents of Karachi feel like yesterday was less hotter than today. And to spice things up, high humidity levels makes you sweat like a marathon runner, even if you don’t take a single step. There is no off switch to it unless you spend the whole day indoors, in a full air conditioned environment.
Mercury level may show you 35°C on the reader but you will feel like breathing in an environment of 40°C or above. No matter how many times you take bath, you will sweat up like before within 5 minutes. The speed of fans on the ceiling and floor reminds you about how fast a snail can run.
Kids at home are restricted to stay indoors untill late evening. Especially Uzair who sweats a lot, even if he is just playing in the room. For him and his cousins, this is not the summer I dreamed of. They are on their summer break and as per predictions, this weather may continue till mid of June.
Trying our best we are to keep ourselves cool during the holy month of Ramadan.
