Kolkata’s trial by Celsius got worse on last Monday with the hottest April day in a decade and the prospect of the heatwave continuing at least until Thursday. The maximum temperature recorded on the first working day of the week was 41.3° C five notches above normal and only the third time in 10 years that the Celsius had breached 41 in April 2016.

The weather office has said that the maximum temperature would stay in the same range – between 41° to 42° Celsius – on Tuesday and that the heatwave would persist at least till Thursday.

2. If you are traveling make sure you drink lots of fluids. Wearing light colored cotton clothes can help you beat the heat and cool baths can keep your body temperature in control.

3. Eat Smart. Nature gives you the ideal food during this time, so make sure you include them in your diet. Eating watermelon, papaya, mango and banana can cool your system.
