It is too hot in Pondicherry (a small state in the southern part of India) and now at 3.00 pm it is 40-42 degrees Celsius or 107 F. Usually the hottest month in Pondicherry is June but the tropical cyclone Amphan that is creating havoc in Eastern part of India and Bangladesh is making us in a hot air oven drawing all the cool air towards it.
Not only Pondicherry, but most of India is reeling under the heatwave created by the cyclone as is evident from the temperature graph from windy.com. But compared to the impact of the cyclone where it is going to hit, this heatwave is manageable. But to the thousands of migrant labourers who are out on the road due to the COVID pandemic, this is going to be a big challenge!!
