The mercury has dipped to the season’s lowest temperature so far of 4 degrees Celsius in India’s capital city of New Delhi.
Delhi residents are complaining and documenting their methods of staying warm. Many are also trying to take the cold with some humor.
It is so cold in Delhi that if a Mumbaiite visits here, he will turn into an ice statue.

Delhi winters are back the way we love it. Sunny clear days and cold cold winds. Let’s freeze

Delhi is unbearably cold, after the comfortable weather of Imphal.

A local news station even attempted to bring the weather to life in the studio.
So far, there have been no reports yet of any deaths due to the cold. Delhi’s rail and road connectivity has been severely hit owing to dense fog, however, and flights have been delayed.
India’s Met Department says that the cold wave is likely to mellow down from Jan. 13. Until then, stay warm, Delhi!
