This is the worst time of the year in Manipal. With University’s around the corner and the weather not aiding the situation either it becomes even more difficult for the students. This weather is the most draining part of the year in Manipal and the libraries are seen more crowded than usual with people coming in just to cool off. the Cafe Coffee Day’s and the ice cream parlours also do better business. There isn’t any point having a bath also as you start sweating as soon as you get out anyway and washing your hair is a complete waste of time because the oilness will be back in a day. Labs coats become more difficult to wear than usual and you seem to be perpetually dehydrated. A couple of handy tips for this weather:
1)Always carry a bottle of water with you. You never know when you might get dehydrated.
2)Carry an umbrella with you unless you want the top of your head to feel like a frying pan.
3)Apply sunscreen of minimum SPF 30 to avoid getting tanned or sunburn.
4)Try to wear cotton as far as possible.
Here’s hoping these tips will come in handy.
