The tap water from the overhead tanks is perfect hot to make cuppa noodles. Ahem! they aren't banned yet. Right?! If you go by the weatherman, temperatures are going to hover around 40-42°C in Noida
over the next two weeks with probability of rain being dismal. (See this fortnight's Weather Info-graph below) So what's best way to beat the heat. Chillers!
Yo! Good old Aam Panna, Shikanji, Milk Shakes, Fruit Slush and Squashes to the rescue. Kiwi flavor from Mapro is our current favorite - and when mixed with coconut water - it tastes divine. This I had tasted first at Dilli Haat near INA Market. Incidentally, they hosted an amazing three-day 'Sharbat Festival' which ended on 7th June. If you have missed that event, you can still be part of another Sharbat Mela to be held at Dilli Haat, Pitampura
