Heatwave in Mumbai

Mumbai is going through a worst heatwave that I've seen. And it's a long one beginning March. People are having all the symptons and diseases associated with such dreaded heat. Mouth ulcers, stomach ulcers and burns, heat boils, bleeding, loose motions. Everyday you hear someone having one problem or the other. Older people with blood pressure problems are collapsing and being admitted to hospitals. Air conditioners are still a luxury in India. You can't sleep through the night with the heat bugging and sometimes even suffocating you. I just can't bear this suffering. Stepping out in the sun is like taking up an AXN Challenge. But then we should be rewarded for doing so.

While God has blessed the city of Delhi with rains after the heat and so also Pune with some of it, Mumbai is yet to bathe in the cool showers from heaven.

Hectic Week

Hmm.. the last two weeks have been busy paying several visits to Used Car showrooms till I finally found a car of my choice. A little savings and a little loan should get me my first car by the end of this week.

Another part of this week went in fighting for a cause for getting a Net connection for my laptop. More of it later.

So much to do. So less time. Tomorrow is another Monday but since UK/ US closed for Labor Day, foreign exchange market closed in India. That's less work for me.

So much to write. So less time. A new and less hectic job is all I require to write, write and write. And maybe start my own website.
