The heat is on

Sweltering heat, tempers on edge, air-conditioners working overtime, soft drink companies revelling in a pre- summer bonanza. That has been the character of the fortnight gone by.
Add to this the tension and frantic activity of the all important Board exams and the forthcoming final exams for the rest, and a recipe for a good summer migraine evolves.
Perspective can span the entire spectrum. While some bemoan the weather, others revel in nature’s giver of life – the Sun – the gift that ripens the ears of paddy and provides the chlorophyllic tonic for summer vegetables.
We are fortunate to have wide open spaces and beaches within striking distances to spend time cooling both the body and mind.
Let not the weather decelerate your day’s schedule – for life is like an ice-cream – lick it before it melts.
