Its definitely not an ideal situation to be as i and around 3000 other students of the National Institute of Technology,Durgapur,India are finding themselves in.with the surface temperature here touching almost 50 degrees,we ,the future technologists are being roasted alive in this godforsaken place.well almost!
What is it with these highly inflated temperatures?what is more frustrating is the fact that this sudden change in weather coincided with the commencement of our semester examinations!aarggh!!the unbearable heat..and yes i will talk about the the most cliched cause of it all–yes you got it right–global warming and its nefarious effects.what is ironic is the fact that we continued to pointlessly talk about the various ill effects of it without really implementing a strategic solution to the various problems.countries failed to form a consensus in order to find a n appropriate remedy to the aforesaid problems.the IPCC has no idea as to which direction they are heading towards.Also India’s honorable minister of state for environment and forests Jairam Ramesh’s apparent confession that “the Government had digressed fro its pre-Copenhagen assurance by allowing provision for international consultation and analysis” did not impress certain sections of THE intelligentsia.
Phew!finally some cool breeze..a temporary respite from the stifling heat..help Thy Almighty!
