Mercury remains high

Highest temperature stat:

1958 – 43.7 degree C
2002 – 43.0 degree C
2009 – 42.1 degree C

Kolkata, with entire South Bengal, is passing through a terrific time. Heat wave of Central India reached South Bengal this year. Initially humidity was low. Citizens of Kolkata are habituated with humid weather; dry summer makes them sick.

Now, the heat flow continues and humidity level also goes up – what a painful situation. Met office recorded 42.1 degree C temperature on May 9, 2009. Humidity was 87 percent on that day.

However, today’s storm followed by a sufficient splash made the situation better.

But, this is the time to think again – “are we on the right track”? Such abnormal hot summer can be an indication of global warming. Beware before it’s too late. I have started saving water and energy as much as I can – WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

I tweet

Whenever I open this blog and see the date of last post, I feel sad. I really really want to post on web wings, but I hardly get time these days. So many works to do – so many indeed! Office from 10:00 – 7:00 (officially), preparing for my music exam that is due in June, then helping my friends to manage their blogs (voluntary job, but of huge responsibility), top of all abnormally hot summer in Kolkata this year - sometimes I really feel exhausted and tired.

Please note that whether I am posting web wings or not, I spend a lot of time surfing the net. After orkut, facebook and linkedin, twitter is my latest crush.

I am tweeting heavily these days – got a lot of followers and am following others religiously too. I receive a lot of news updates, resources, quotations on twitter everyday. And it feels good when someone starts following me. Even I got some #FollowFriday mentions on last two Fridays.

So follow me (Find Saikat Sengupta on twitter) on twitter and stay connected. If you do not love twitter, read this article.
