Indian Cities boilingAccording to the latest report, in the coming years, these cities will cross 50-degree Celsius.

Even our air conditioners, coolers or fans will not save or protect us in summer.

Why is it so hot ?????  What are some of the main reasons to this!
In the last 10 years over 10 crore trees were cut for widening roads and highways.   And this is happening every other day.  In the name of developments, the authorities are allowing to cut trees!  🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳 🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳 🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳 🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳 

But the statistics say that only more than a lakh trees have been planted or replaced by the govt. or public, but cutting down the trees are numberless!

How to make India cool ?????

Please do not wait for the government to plant trees.  Here are some solutions we can apply!

Sowing seeds or planting trees does not cost much.
🌳🌲🌿🌳🌲🌳 🌳🌲🌿🌳🌲🌳🌳🌲🌿🌳🌲🌳
Just collect seeds of fruits like Mango, Lemon, Jamun, Neem, Custard Apple, Jack fruit, and other seeds.
🍏🍋🍒🍇🍐🍍🍈🍑 🍏🍋🍒🍇🍐🍍🍈🍑🍏🍋🍒🍇🍐🍍🍈🍑
Then dig two-three inch hole on open spaces, roadside, footpaths, highways, gardens and also in your locality, society or bungalow.

Bury these seeds in each hole with soil and then water them every two days in summer.
In rainy season no need to water them.

After 15 to 30 days small plants will shoot up.
Please nurture them and ensure they grow big.

Let us make this a National movement and plant 10 crore trees all over India.
This act will surely help us to reduce the temperature level from crossing the present level.
Please plant maximum trees and forward this message to everyone. Let us distribute saplings as return gifts during functions, birthdays, etc.    ‘

    Hello Philip Sir,
    well India is boiling these days. Here I came to your doorstep and I bring some hot news. The news is I will plant trees as much as I can so that everybody get rid of the hot weather.
    Very informative post. And the solution to get rid of it is quit awesome.

    May 24, 2015
    • Hi Piyush,
      Nice to see you here again! :-)
      Nice to know that my post made you to take some serious decision on this alarming situation!
      Good let us spread the news, so that many who are not aware on this serious issue in which
      they are knowingly or unknowingly involved in!
      These types of awareness among people especially among school college students it will reap
      great result.
      Nice to know that you have taken a firm decision to do something on this!
      Keep it up my friend :-)
      Have a great weekend

  4. Hi Phil,

    Oh yes…it IS getting pretty hot nowadays, and I am glad you wrote about it :)

    I did read this message in an email message I received yesterday too, and the temperatures always seem to soar higher and higher each year – all thanks to Global warming and the lack of education where conserving the environment is concerned. I wish more people would get down to really planting tress instead of not cutting them.

    Simple things also matter, like using more of water coolers in place of AC’s, and using the power saving tube-lights and bulbs instead of the fancy ones – anything to save the environment or else these temperatures will keep soaring as the years pass – winters become colder and summers too hot to bear.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice weekend :)

    • Hi Harleena,
      Thank you so much for finding some time to drop in!
      I appreciate your concern towards this global warming!
      The latest report says: The death toll increased to a 186+ in Telangana State (my state) alone in these few days,. and an altogether death rate in AP and Telegana shows 400+ This is really an alarming increase!
      Yes, as you said the simple remedies if we follow we can surely curtail temperature level down and eventually the death rate too down!

      As I mentioned in one of the linked posts, We need to make an awareness among people about the coming calamity the Global warming! Making awareness among School College level can make a tremendous change! And we bloggers and writers too can play a big role in spreading this awareness among people. :-)
      I appreciate you for adding more tips to this post.
      May you have a wonderful week ahead.
      ~ Phil

  5. That’s so hot! Here in my country, some cities are experiencing higher temperature.

    Cutting trees is one of the main reasons why we suffer super hot and cold weathers. We need to save Earth because the earth is our home. Planting trees and taking care of other resources would be a very big help.

    Thanks for sharing this.

      Oh My Goodness!
      Indeed this year is really horrible!
      The mercury is soaring high!
      The most affected people are in
      Telangana and Andhra Pradesh!
      48+ degree!
      No doubt, it is indeed our lifestyle is the culprit here!
      The connected links here talks much about this serious issue!
      Thanks for making note of these things here PV :-)
      Yes, the need of the hour is to spread the news among
      the people who are not at all aware about this increasing
      global warming! and what we can do about it, you brought out
      the seriousness in a measure through this post.
      Have a good and wonderful week ahead

    Hi Philip!

    I have to agree, even here in Delhi its crazy hot. I really do dislike the dry heat here. I can’t even imagine how hot it will be when its June or July.

    I wonder what the “Legendary Delhi’s Loo” will be like..

    And i am not talking about a “bio break”.. Lmao!


    May 26, 2015
  7. Wow. My wife panics when the temperature in the house goes above 22. She puts on the air conditioner and I freeze. I am not saying I would trade 22 for 48, but what a difference!

    May 26, 2015
  8. What a timely post Philip.

    I am in Delhi and I can feel the pain of this summer. In fact, we face extreme hot in summer and extreme cold in winters.

    Its going more than 45 degress. Difficult to live.

    May 29, 2015
    • Hi Atish,
      Thanks for the visit and the insight!
      Yes, I too experienced the extreme climate in Delhi.
      That was really horrible!
      But in Hyderabad and surrounding places this is for
      the first time, but i believe if we go forward with
      our present way of living no doubt the temperature will
      surely increase and we will suffer a lot. If we make
      an awareness about the reasons for this developments
      i am sure we can make a change, we the writers and bloggers
      can play a big role in this
      Thanks again for your valuable time Atish
      Have a great weekend

    Anyways Thank God,
    the atmosphere is now so pleasant!
    Good that you brought out this news
    to make an awareness among people to
    be vigilant about the coming calamity!
    The Global Warming!
    Yes, we can join together and make this
    point out to the people who are not aware about its seriousness!
    Let us plant more saplings in and around our dwelling places and
    work places.
    Thanks for sharing this

  10. Hey Phillip,
    The situation in India a few months back was scary. I was beginning to think if the world was coming to an end. Many people lost their lives to the heat waves. This could have been avoided or limited if only we adhere to conservation experts advocates!

    It is time we do our part to save the planet and save India. Planting trees is one way of respecting nature and making the world a better and safer place!

    I left the above comment in as well.

    Thank you for sharing this timely information with us as the cities in India are really boiling at an alarming rate. The suggestions are really worth trying. There is no doubt that if we follow those suggestions we can surely bring down the rate of heat tremendously.
    Let’s plant trees/ saplings wherever we can.
    Thanks Phil for this share.

Yes, all we need to do is to grow plants in and around us as much as we can, I am sure this will help our coming generation to face the alarming heat.

    Yes, planting trees should help a lot. I notice even when I just walk around the block, it’s at least 10 degrees cooler in the shade. My town is a ‘tree city’, they’ve committed to keeping as many trees as they can. They plant trees along the roads and try not to cut any down.
    Its a great idea to plant fruit/nut trees. That helps with feeding people too. I have planted orange, lemon, lime, and almond trees in my yard (along with the giant old oak trees that were here before. The citrus keeps me stocked all year. I guess it’s too hot for the almonds to produce. I’m trying some apples this year.

    great information about Indian cities and it’s soaring temperature.
    Thanks for giving us this updated information about the weather in India. I fully agree with thou that we need to think of the coming generation, yes we can provide them a better India by planting plants and trees in and around our cities and courtyards.
    We need to make an awareness about this among people. But sad, Many just enjoy the facilities of modern amenities to escape from this this scorching heat.
    But if we take an initiative to curtail it naturally it wil last forever.
    Thanks for this share will share it with my friends.
