2016 is officially the hottest year ever recorded, and you probably already knew that! As you were trying to somehow still stay in a semi-solid state and not completely melt into a puddle, the NOOA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) of the US stated on Thursday that 2016 is on its way to even beat 2015 with its fiery heatwaves, and for India, “it could be one of the warmest years of the century”.

Reports have come in of over 100 people having died of heat strokes, but the temperature is only expected to go up. Several schools have also been asked to close early, and extend the summer vacations. With the election season around the corner, politicians have been promising voters everything under the sun, but even they have been unable to stop it from showing off its hotness.

And while we still wait for the April showers which we’re usually accustomed to, to arrive, those among us who are religious have taken to praying for the heatwave to subside, everyday after waking up!
