Don't lose your cool this summer... here's how.

Arjun Gurung

All winter we shiver and long for summer and when its finally here all we want to do is turn off the sun. Well too bad we can't do that, but that doesn't mean we have to lose our cool either. Here are some inexpensive ways to fight the summer heat...

 1. Drink a lot of water. Dehydration makes summer a real bummer.

2. Buy your little brother or nephew a water gun and tell him not to use it on you.

3. Sit in the shade of a large tree with a pair of binoculars. Summer also brings beautiful sights to see.

4. Dress appropriately. Loose clothes and short clothes are great way to escape the heat.

5. Carry a small and handy umbrella while going out. Matching it with your wardrobe will be even more fashionable. Remember, umbrellas are for men too; both the sexes feel equal heat. ;-)

6. A hammock and a good book are also great. Of course the book won't be read much so you might as well as take something intellectual. Tell others that you prefer to read lighter stuff in the summer.

7. Work your way up the office ladder to that cubical just bellow the Air Conditioner.

8. Drive an open top convertible or race your bike through the wind on open roads. Roads, which lead to some places where you can swim.

9. Have Ice cream for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. Or you could try frozen dal, bhat and tarkari. mmmm.

10. Wet a hanky and wrap it around your head, or take a frozen bottle of water and rub it along your skin.

11. Evening strolls is a perfect way to let off steam of the day, be it from work or be it from the heat.

Well, I hope these pointers to beat the heat will come in handy to you as it has to me.  Now if you'll excuse me, I have some "binocularing" to do.
