If you’ve lived in Mumbai, you would feel that it’s the coldest place to live in. But if you’ve moved to Delhi from Mumbai, you are sure to feel, ‘kya jhooth boltey hai yaar Mumbai k log’. This banter between Delhiites and Mumbaikers is never going to grow old.
But, Twitter recently raised eyebrows when a German woman living in Mumbai said that Mumbai winters are unbearable for her.
Taking to Twitter, the woman named Simi penned that even though she has braved winters of -23° celsius, she is sitting in her Mumbai house with both the air conditioner and the fan switched off. Moreover, she has also enveloped herself in a warm woolen scarf. This is how cold she is RN.
I'm German. I've braved winters of -23° Celsius. Yet, I'm sitting in Mumbai with both AC and fan switched off wrapped in a Kilmora merino wool scarf… am I falling sick again or what is this?

As expected, people took to the comments sections to understand and give their own explanations of why she is unable to bear Mumbai winters.
We don’t have internal heating in India so many people who are although accustomed to much colder winters in the West, feel cold here. Delhi is worse!

This sounds like season flu. Please check for fever and avoid sudden temperature shifts.

It’s frequent weather change which is the problem, not the temperature.
