23-03-2009, Mangalore: People in Mangalore are finding ways to beat the heat this summer. Ice cream parlours are over crowded. People prefer to stay inside their houses. Its a tuff time for students and people who go out for work every day. The coolies working on the road construction struggle in the heat, but what to do its their necessity to work and earn in order to live.
Students prefer to sleep in the class during the lectures due to the heat. Its more humid here in Mangalore due to its geographic position. Its a coastal area its surrounded by a lot of water bodies that increase the humidity.
I had an appointment with my dentist today in the evening at 5:00 P.M., after hanging around with my friends for a while after the lectures I reached the clinic at 5:15 P.M. I was feeling very tired and I fell a sleep there in the clinic. At around 6:00 P.M. it was my turn to meet the dentist (Dr. Rohan Mascharenas, he is a well known professor). I had to wait for another 10 minutes on the dentist seat, as he was busy with another patient. I found it comfortable and fell asleep. Later after sometime the doctor came to me for fixing another bracket to one of my teeth. He is a good friend of mine. He asked me why I was looking so tired. I told him because of the heat out there. But his clinic was air conditioned so I could sleep comfortably. He asked me which sleep was comfortable, the sleep out there on the sofa or on his seat.Well definitely the one in his clinic.I find it easy to sleep wherever I find it comfortable. I even sleep standing on the bus leaning to the pole sometimes!!
As soon as I was done with the work I came out to go home. It started raining. Well it was a blessing for me from the rain Gods. I enjoyed the 45 minutes journey on the bus sleeping. It was so cool out there.
Hope you too enjoyed the little rain that showered in your area??
