Phalodi in Rajasthan broke all records on Thursday scoring India’s hottest ever temperature at 51 degree Celsius.
There are also reports of how soldiers are able to cook rotis in the Thar Desert and how crayons are melting in the summer heat.
So to escape the heat, many drove up the road to the soothing climate of Mussoorie in Uttarakhand. The result? A traffic jam!
Cars snaking along the narrow roads of the scenic town before the start of the holiday season is a surprise to the residents.
And if they are able to beat the traffic, a pleasant weather indeed awaits them.
