Cooling off in an Indian Summer Posted by Nitya on Jun 13, 2018 in Hindi Language
The summer months गर्मी के महीने (garmi ke maheene) in India are both good and not-so-good. They are good because they bring with them the season of the luscious mango आम (aam). However, once the mango आम season मौसम (mausam) or आम का मौसम (aam ka mausam) ebbs, the sun gets hotter and the hot summer wind लू (loo) gets unbearable.
temperatures तापमान (taapmaan) … noisy ceiling fans पंखे (punkhay) whirr at top speed in homes with electricity बिजली (bijli); those more affording enjoy the cool comfort of equally noisy air-conditioners (also referred to as aircon or a/c).
