Popular Technique to beat the Indian Heat

This year, the central states of India – Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Chhattisgarh had an extreme summer with temperatures consistently hovering above 45 degree Celsius. As I personally spent a couple of weeks travelling these states in this sweltering weather, I can surely vouch for its ferocity and the painful sunburns it left behind.

And this is where I learnt a valuable lesson when I saw the locals who were covered from head to toe. And the lesson is that you cannot beat the heat, but you can make it bearable by covering yourself completely. That way, you escape the ferocity of the harsh sun’s rays and thereby the ensuing sun burns. Very effective I should say after I gave it a try!
