Sizzling hot…

The dreaded week is upon us – according to Met predictions, for the next 7 days (or more) maximum temperatures in Delhi will hover around 44-46o C (111 -115 o F). In fact most of the country is reeling under the heat wave which has already killed hundreds. At least I have the luxury of staying indoors – what about the millions who have to brave the heat and haze minus water and electricity?

Why just India? Entire South – East Asia is struggling to cope with widespread drought, severe heat and water shortages which are disrupting normal life, killing people and animals and destroying crops. Do watch the CNN clip on the Mideast’s drought worst in 900 years. Here’s an out of the box (rather ‘in the box’) take on global warming.

And then was this lecture at MIT linking global warming to Islamophobia. The article has enough links obviating any need to add my two cents worth. Besides what do I know – except that global warming has roasted, toasted, grilled, steamed, fried my brains for sure 😉

Have a super weekend and see you all on Monday – and for readers of Moonshine here is Chapter 58: Harried 🙂

Quote for the day:“The heat made people crazy. They woke from their damp bedsheets and went in search of a glass of water, surprised to find that when their vision cleared, they were holding instead the gun they kept hidden in the bookcase.”Kristin Hannah, Summer Island

Now Hobbes is hell bent on raising Calvin’s temperature as well 😀
