The season of rains is here with a spell of showers and the national capital is basking in the glory of the rain drops. While the rain has increased the humidity, it has also brought a breath of fresh air in the natural surroundings. With a slight temperature drop, the monsoon season is calling for a break from the hot sunny days. Heavy rainfall and thunderstorm lashed the Delhi-National Capital Region (NCR) early Thursday morning, but it also resulted into waterlogging in several areas. To top that, a lot of streets were jammed when the traffic was at its peak.
To voice their thoughts about the rains, Twitterati took to the social media platform and coated it with a layer of sarcasm and humour. While some are “thinking of buying a boat”, others are busy wondering if it was a “meteor shower” instead of just a rain shower that hit Delhi. “How tough is it to get drainage right? The Harappan civilisation did it thousands of years ago! Wading thru water this morning,” a Twitter user tweeted.
Take a look at some of the tweets here.

Gee, are you sure it was only a rain shower that hit Delhi roads? Looks more like a meteor shower to me. #DelhiRains

To address the woes of people online, Delhi traffic police’s Twitter handle also issued advisories. Their helpline received over 70 complaints of waterlogging, while many traffic signals also stopped functioning due to the rain. The rainfall brought down the maximum temperature to 28-degrees Celsius. Precipitation and humidity were recorded at 30 per cent and 96 per cent respectively.
