We are getting some rains. The weather is cool. It must be because of
Varuna Parjanya Mantras chanting. Or a coincidence? Who knows?


The maximum temperatures in the city have been decreasing. “The maximum
temperatures, that are the daytime temperatures, are decreasing. The city
will feel cooler. Last week, we recorded temperatures up to 34.5 to 35
degree Celsius. But, as of now, it has come down to 30 to 31 degree.”
