    Considering the heat wave that’s been experienced by people in Pakistan and other countries this is absolutely applicable. What inspires you to write such stories?

      Guess, the heat wave was what has inspired me. It’s sad that this year has been one of the most hottest years on record with deaths reported from across the Indian subcontinent. Our destruction of the environment is costing as dear with all the global warming going around :(.

  2. This is saddeningly true 🙁

    • Yes, it is so sad to hear of deaths due to heat. It seems like this should be avoidable.

      • aseemrastogi2

        Yeah it should be avoidable if we stop destroying the planet with our own actions like cutting trees, increased pollution, damaging natural habitats and the likes. And this is resulting in a temperature increase across the world leading to a global warming kind of situation.

      True Kalpana. Quite sad, isn’t it? Like this year there have been so many deaths across the Indian subcontinent due to the summer :(.

  4. We think of the Sun as such a comfort, it’s easy to forget that too much of it can be harmful.

    • aseemrastogi2

      True James. Along with the heat, it’s the UV rays of the sun which are damaging as well :(. Guess, that’s the sad reality in many countries around the world.
