 The sales of Fans have increased said a local dealer. He said normally the demand is there from mid march or later but these enquiries started in late February only and we are doing good business in this first week. The same is the case with AC’s. The sale of ice cream is rising day by day and as soon as the exams get over all the ice cream dealers will be doing brisk business.

Incase of ice cream this time in the city you can also taste Baskin Robbins at the Nucleus mall, elsewhere Aditya  ice cream is the latest new comer with easy availability almost all over, there are those old brands like Dinshaws and Amul also.

 The sale of eye glasses on the road side has also seen a rise. Juice centers, coconut vendors are doing brisk business as the temperature is rising day by day and there is no great relief.

Just compare the monthly averages in Jan and Feb. this year and we could be heading for a very hot summer ahead. In May we could even break some records.

It is believed that after Holi if the rains come, they keep on coming in between till the monsoons. Let’s see Holi is a couple of days ahead and hope for the best.

See the forecast for the coming week, no sight of relief.
