I talked to my mother in the morning who complained about the soaring mercury in Kolkata making life a living hell. She is worried if the temperature in the late March is so forbidding, what would turn out in May and June. The city of joy with its ever escalating temperature coupled with humidity going beyond tolerance level becomes quite insufferable during summer especially the way the heat ratio in weather turning worse every year. Cold drinks fresh out of the fridge give crisp refreshment to a parched throat thirsty after a travel outdoor. The following grapefruit orange apple juice served cold cools you down in addition to providing the vitamin needs of your body.
