In New Delhi, the birds are silent and time suddenly seems motionless. When the heat is at its peak in the early afternoon, life takes place in slow motion in the capital of India transformed into a furnace. Passers-by seek shade, vendors doze off, and naps are improvised en masse under the trees in the parks. Increased tenfold by a temperature that reached 46°C, thirst does not wait and you have to spare your efforts. Only the horns of the vehicles are still stubborn, made impatient under the effect of the heat wave. And everything gets hot, from surfaces exposed to the sun to tap water. Even public landfills, gigantic mountains of rubbish that ignite and disperse their toxic fumes in the air, already loaded with dust and pollutant particles
