There are parts of the country that don’t need a stove to make an omelette – that’s how hot it is. 2016 will not only have one of the world’s hottest summers in decades, but will also see one of the hottest summers in India. Last year, over 2400 died in India in heat-related deaths.



Over 160 have died in the pre-monsoon heat wave, across Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, and the ongoing drought and pan-India water shortages can compromise the safety of 330 million people, according to government findings.

According to the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), several parts of the country are recording temperatures that are way above normal already: “2015 was the hottest year ever recorded. Our forecast for the summer has already talked of above normal temperature,” Director general of the IMD Laxman Singh Rathore told PTI.

“If you also look at the summer temperature until now, it looks that 2016 summer will be hotter,” he added. India’s hottest months are May and June, but some states have already registered temperatures in excess of 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit), forcing authorities to take emergency steps.
