Even with the onset of monsoon season, the harsh heat that Delhi experiences every year is hard to forget. But there's a fun side that makes summers more bearable: The satisfaction of slurping on a rainbow-hued chuski (flavoured snow cone), or hanging around at India Gate in the evenings, with an occasional splashing session in its little pools cannot be enjoyed all year round.
This video by Delhi I Love You, captures the ferocity of the summer at its peak, and the fun-filled measures that Delhiites take to cool themselves off. For those who have grown up in the capital, this serves as a link to their childhood memories that can be relived even today.
The video concludes with a bunch of satisfied people, happy with the simple ways that they can relieve themselves from the obnoxious heat.
'Delhi I Love You' is a 30-month long social movement started by a group of friends who share their love for the city. The project aims to highlight the charm of living in this city to residents and the world alike, and is expected to launch similar cultural events across the capital.
