I really don’t like summers. Summer means sweat, lots of sweaty (
and stinky) people, and load-shedding (glares at K-electric).
Last year, Karachi faced one of the worst heat wave in decades. Thousands of people died and suffered from heat exhaustion, and as the heat wave around the same time as the holy month of Ramadan. It was double the battle.
This year the people are more prepared. The government, rangers and the civilian have all put up relief camps at various locations. Providing water, juices, hand towels etc for people on the roads in this weather.
The chart below shows the statistics for last year.
I wish the government and we civilians had learnt from the last heat wave and had planted more trees throughout.
So day by day the temperature keeps rising, just the other day when I was at my university waiting for the car the temperature 37 degrees Celsius that is approx 99 degrees Fahrenheit. Interior Sindh is suffering the most with temperatures hitting 50 degrees Celsius!
With the month of Ramadan fast approaching, and the temperatures rising day by day. I just hope we all make it out in one piece!
