Welcome to Delhi, the outside temperature is 45c

Yes that’s correct. At first I thought the Airline crew of Jet Airways had got it wrong. Surely she meant 35c. But the English announcement confirmed it.

Yes, Delhi is 45c or 113F and this was not the middle of the day. It was 7:45pm. The sun had set an hour ago!

In English, August there’s a line which goes:

SRIVASTAVA: If you think itís hot wait till next month. Even birds drop from the sky, dead!
The army recorded 52 degrees in Rajasthan. Iím sure Madna will top that.

Everyone thought that 52 degrees was over the top. 13 years later you don’t need to go to the desert. Even Delhi is getting close to it.
