June-like temperature in May (Heat Havoc)

As it is getting hot, it has not happened in the last many years.  In May itself the temperature remains like June.  This is the situation in most of the states of the country.  On Sunday, the temperature crossed forty-nine degrees Celsius at some places in Delhi.  It is not that mercury broke this record in Delhi itself.  Even in Banda, Uttar Pradesh, the mercury was at forty nine degrees.  However, in states ranging from Rajasthan to Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh etc., the previous records of temperature have been broken in many cities.
For the last few years, it is also being seen that the hill states like Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand are also coming under the grip of heat.  When the plains are scorching, people turn to these hilly states.  Therefore, if the mountainous areas of the Himalayas also start heating, then one-time surprise is bound to happen.  It is being told that this time cities like Shimla, Kangra, Dharamshala are very hot.  Shimla broke the record of the last eight years.  The temperature in Dharamsala went up to thirty seven degrees.
It has been said that the season moves according to its time.  There should be heat in summer and severe cold in winter.  But the seasons have changed in the last few decades.  The effect of this has been that the cycle and duration of winter, summer and rain are all changing.  Earlier, where it used to be very cold for three or four months, now it does not last even a month.  Same is the case with summer.  In April and May, all summer records were broken.  However, the duration of the heat wave is getting shorter than before.
It is also not that this weather is being hit only in India, most of the countries of the world are in its JD.  In the last few years, many European countries have also become victims of severe heat.  Heat and heat have wreaked havoc in America too.  In fact, no human force can work on the weather.  But a big truth that cannot be turned away is that most of the major factors affecting the weather have been created by man himself.  Therefore, now we have to find ways to avoid it.
The heat wave for India is a matter of more concern because twelve of the fifteen hottest cities in the world are from India.  All these four states belong to Rajasthan, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.  Not only this, six of the fifteen cities with the highest rainfall in the world are also from India.  That is, the situation of India in terms of weather is becoming more sensitive than other countries.
Obviously, our meteorological challenges are also increasing.  India’s condition is already very bad in terms of air pollution.  Excessive use of air conditioners and vehicles is a major reason for the rise in temperature.  Most of the cities of the country including Delhi start facing water crisis as soon as summer comes.  Greenery is necessary to reduce the effect of heat.  But the condition of Delhi has become such that there is no space to plant trees here.  The mountains of garbage start blazing every day.  Obviously, the heat will increase and we will have to come forward to protect it.
