The weather was capital

Written in


The capital visited me yesterday, and for the purposes of making small talk, people kept asking me about what the weather was like in Delhi. To answer that question, I recap my trip thus.

  • Taxi to Chennai airport. Weather – Windy (the windows were open).
  • Chennai Airport, Weather – Crowded (the temperature, humidity and pressure of 1000s trying to get from Chennai to point B, whereever that may be.)
  • Jet Airways flight to Delhi. Weather – 25 degrees (It was airconditioned)
  • Flight to terminal by Jet airways bus. Weather – 25 degrees (It was airconditioned)
  • Delhi Terminal. Weather – Blackhole (The immensely turbulent atmosphere of 1000s packed into a terminal whose size could best be described as “2B/H/K”. )
  • Car to Office. Weather – you guessed it. 25 degrees. (It was airconditioned)
  • Office. Weather – Ditto.
  • Same, in reverse, in the evening

So, if the 10 seconds between me exiting the terminal and getting into the car counts for a statistically valid period of time for an accurate estimation, the weather in Delhi was pleasant. Better than Chennai. Much better.
