Day 8 | Letter: H
After watching a lot of Hollywood movies and YouTube videos from the West, I wondered what’s the craze with the ‘foreigners’ (we address everyone, who are not Indian –No offense) about summers! How can someone love summer? Yes, I am talking about the weather not a hot looking guy. Summer is Hot and that’s not so hot!
In India, at least we the people of Mumbai hate summer. We don’t wear those summer dresses, shorts, bikini all day. On the contrary, we try to do everything to stay back at home.
5 things only Indians would understand about Indian Hot Summers:
The moment you leave the air conditioned room; you feel the sticky and oily sweat all over your body. This is the sign the weather isn’t just hot but humid too. Walking from home to the train station is a nightmare. Travelling in a Non-Ac cab or bus is the worst thing that can happen to you.
- Melting Make-up:
In India, we avoid make-up during the summer. The reason is simple, most of us, Indians sweat like a waterfall and that means our make-up on an extremely hot day has to melt. I am not over-exaggerating. The other day I applied just ‘Lacto Calamine’ and compact. By the time I reached the railway station, the lacto calamine was melting through my face and neck.
- Summer dresses:
Not all of us wear summer dresses to work because, at times it is not allowed and the other times, we’re not shaved. We stick to the full sleeves kurta and tops made of cotton and trust me that it is better than the summer dresses.
This is a kind of energy drink for the Indian household. Having a glass of Glucon-D before leaving the house and after coming home is a ritual that most of us follow. There is a belief that Glucon-D keeps you hydrated.
- Long showers:
Indians are quite hygienic and during summers we have the hygiene God within us. Taking shower two times a day is the best thing that we do. When the cold water touches your body, it not only touches your body but also your soul.
These are the most basic five things that we Indians completely relate to during a hot summer day.
