Intense heat, a bad accident, but MAITRI activities continue!
The common feature of the two months is the searing heat that has relentlessly enveloped all of North India. Although very high temperatures are characteristic of the season, it is the fast rise of the mercury that has particularly hit people. 45C and over would be generally recorded in mid-May but this time they have been the norm already in the month of April. Workers, inpatients and animals have had a very hard time. The grounds that were so green up to March have become scorched and with great effort water is given to the plants for their survival.
