You Know It’s Summer In India When…

Summer is here, and how. The terrible heat, the excessive sweating, the constant need to fan yourself even when the fan is on its fastest speed. It’s the little things we start with that end up making us realize that we’ve already shifted to bringing the summer in, waiting for the day we can say goodbye to it.
