If there is one thing that is most talked about at this time of the year, is the Dilli ki thand as mercury has gone below 5C and add some, rain to it, you get to experience two seasons in one day.  

Most recently, the capital had the joy to experience two seasons in one day as the rains hit the capital and it seems to have been a blessing for the ordinary Delhiite, especially for the one who loves rains as there is lots of hot chocolate, kullad wali chai with some hot ‘n’ crispy samosas and pakodas have been the highlight of this winter.

 

The national capital yet once again witnessed rain during wintertime, in which people not only enjoyed the weather but it has also dropped the temperature where the minimum and maximum temperatures were recorded at 12 degrees Celsius and 17 degrees Celsius according to India Meteorological Department (IMD).

If you love long-drives in this amazing weather now is the time to go for it like Shashank Singh a Delhiite who loves winter expresses that he loves living in Delhi more in the winter than in the summer. So what happens when you add some rain to the already cold winter? In the case of Shashank, it is a heavenly combination. He recalls, “Since my childhood, I have been very fascinated about bikes and long drives. Although it’s too cold to drive during winters and most of the people also prefer not to use two-wheelers, I am very enthusiastic about these adventures.”

 

Rains in the national capital have always been a sight for sore eyes and for Kaustubh Sharma, it is a relief from pollution. He comments, “Finally the rain gave me and my friends the opportunity to take time out and spend some quality time catching up over up over hot coffee and lunch. It was indeed a relaxing day for all.”
