Chennai has crossed the 40˚ mark. Its not even May yet!
And as a present from the government on the day this happens, there are random power cuts throughout the day, especially around noon. This ensures that for the rest of the year, grateful Chennaivasis dont complain, we just compare the day to the worst we had that year (42˚ with a no power machan!) and rejoice.
Brace for the FireStar!
