It's Getting Hot in Here!

This week, Ahmedabad experienced a little pre-summer heatwave. It went a little something like this:
  • Monday, March 15th--high of 37ºC
  • Tuesday, March 16th--high of 38ºC
  • Wednesday, March 17th--high of 38ºC
  • Thursday, March 18th--high of 40ºC
  • Friday, March 19th--high of 41ºC
  • Saturday, March 20th--high of 41ºC
The formula to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit is as follows: ºF=(ºC+32)*9/5

You tell ME how hot it got in here! Perhaps, as incentive to participate, if you get ALL the correct answers, I'll send you a little prize (just leave your answers in the comments).

I would also like to add, Steve and I did NOT turn on the air-conditioner ONCE during this heatwave (which is still going strong, and supposed to last until Monday or Tuesday). That makes us troopers. And yes, I would like some sort of prize for my trooper-ness. 

the first one is 99 degrees
the next two are 100 degrees
the one after that is 104 degrees
and the last two are 106 degrees

Annnnd i'm a big cheater pants as i found a calculator online. HEE HEE HEE!

Either way I'm staying here in my happy go lucky 70 degrees.

100 degrees. I'd be a puddle on the ground crying. Particularly if there's humidity.

Here are the conversions, I think, for anyone wondering...
37C = 98.6F
38C = 100.4F
40C = 104F
41C = 105.8

Hodgepodge and Miscellany

The land of dreams and romance, of fabulous wealth and fabulous poverty, of splendour and rags, of palaces and hovels, of famine and pestilence, of genii and giants and Alladin lamps, of tigers and elephants, the cobra and the jungle, the country of hundred nations and a hundred tongues, of a thousand religions and two million gods, cradle of the human race, birthplace of human speech, mother of history, grandmother of legend, great-grandmother of traditions, whose yesterday's bear date with the modering antiquities for the rest of nations-the one sole country under the sun that is endowed with an imperishable interest for alien prince and alien peasant, for lettered and ignorant, wise and fool, rich and poor, bond and free, the one land that all men desire to see, and having seen once, by even a glimpse, would not give that glimpse for the shows of all the rest of the world combined.
- Mark Twain

In India, I found a race of mortals living upon the Earth, but not adhering to it, inhabiting cities, but not being fixed to them, possessing everything, but possessed by nothing.
- Appolonius Tyanaeus

If there is one place on the face of earth where all the dreams of living men have found a home from the very earliest days when man began the dream of existence, it is India.
