Comforts and suffering

While the other part of the world welcomes spring with uplifted spirit and energy and celebration of colorful blossoms, we are forced into the sultry heat and summer sweat makes quite exhausted. We aren't in the middle of the summer yet but still experiencing hot weather felt like ever to recollect on memories. Though the entire day wasn't under the control of heat - the post afternoons are pleasant rose to sea breeze - waking up and leading up to noon seems frustrated and fatigue, which I experienced a lot today. I wasn't active enough from morning and was out of concern and running out of time to keep in touch with deeds I vow to do daily.

 I hear complains of raised temperature from various part of the country early to summer, the fear of running  out of water or electricity threatens people and they believe all the comforts will lead only up to the day of polling to parliament (Apr 24). I am going through the phase to decide whom to vote and I concerned for their vows to the constituency and public service mind rather praising their party or party presidents. During last parliamentary election I voted for an individual candidate who promised hope, even though I was certain that is his winning was impossible I tried the best selecting the candidate. I don’t believe in voting for who show hope of winning or party based polling, as I know there are many who vote only for certain political parties whoever the candidate maybe… I wish they change their mindset and vote on their individual thought.

Coming to the summer heat, I believe I experience the least sitting inside the house with an option of getting cool under the air conditioned room, but those with work outside and mainly under the sun seems unbearable. I never been an A/C guy and avoid as much possible unless unbearable or due to pollution and dust while going out in car, I am quite a natural being and enjoy the cool breeze brushing through environment than facing A/C blower. There’s nothing equivalent to the source of nature, even it hurt us sometime comforts though its various aspect bringing smile on face. I relived little bit by this time of (4.pm), and it seems living close to school zone increases the anxiety by raised temperature and expose to whistle sounds, horns of cars that deliver and deposit students and noise of engines and vocals creates wreck to environment.

I really liked the environment out here in evening … just opposite to what we experience until 2pm and no one will believe it was high in decibel at morning. The heat waves and sunshine has settled down by now, but still it wasn't favorable due to humidity in air. It sounds terrible how we going to pass this summer, however better it was in latter year seems worse and there won’t be inadequate suffering.

We could use some of your heat here, as the nights are still very cold and plants are endangered by frost. But I don't like the heat of summer either -- that makes working in the yard very exhausting. I'm glad you can enjoy cool evenings.

I prefer the outdoor air to ac also. It sounds very hot where you are. I hope you're able to stay cool!

Temperature is raising up here also. Here temp is going up to 36. There will be a power-cut threat after Loksabha elections. Tamilnadu is more hotter than Kerala.

Thanks for sharing...

Hello on a gorgeous, spring day in TENNESSEE. Wow---after the long and bitter winter we had this year, Spring is even more inviting and lovely.

Stay COOL during the heat. I don't like SUMMER ---and always dread it when it gets to us.. I too do not like AC --but there are times when we all NEED it..

We are now home 'again' --after our 5th trip since the end of February.... Seems as if we visited five different states --although the trips weren't planned for that reason... ha... BUT--as I always say, it's great to be home... I did publish a blog post today--so check it out when you have time. Have a wonderful weekend.

Hugs,
Betsy

Seasons of life, much like life itself, is a cycle for a good reason. We are supposed to experience everything - the heat to the cold (although it's debatable whether we ever get cold in Chennai!) and take them all in our stride.

Summer is trying time for people. Here in Hyderabad, it is terrible after 1 p.m. , it lasts upto 7 p.m. and the radiation of heat from the roads, compound, lasts through 9 p.m. or so no. Over the next few weeks it will be till morning 3 a.m.Then relief, rains.. ( late June or July). For almost 70 days , it is hateful heat, with goodies like lovely mangoes, watermelons, jasmines.

I, like you, do not like A/C as it makes my throat and nose sore. Then when I do go outside I feel like fainting. The humidity where you are would get to me also as I am so used to our arid desert heat now. Still I am looking forward to the summer heat after a long cold winter here in Canada. We don't usually get those days where you want to hide inside until June and July.
