“One can smell the winters approaching. The trees have started giving out a distinct fragrance. Though the sun is up, the winds are chilly. A morning cup of warm coffee in cold weather with rain outside and soft music inside is what marks the beginning of my winters each year,” said Alka Banwait, a 24-year-old medical representative.
