Jaipur sizzles with heat wave: Birds, animals die
With temperature soaring beyond 47 Celsius, due to scorching heat both human beings and animals are suffering in Jaipur. More so the birds and the small animals. Many birds, cats, dogs and squirrels have died in the city because of thirst and dehydration.

In Rajasthan, relentless heatwave conditions affected normal life and people prefer to stay indoors and birds and small animals went uncared for.

Many NGOs and animal welfare activists have got active and have started putting up water troughs in the city parks, on roadsides and in gardens. An appeal has been made to the public to place water troughs in their lawns and terraces to save the birds and small animals dying due thirst.

Acting on the appeal, I too have put on my garden wall three water troughs- one earthen trough and two aluminium ones. Scores of pigeons and other birds are visiting the troughs to have water. In the morning, it is a great fun to watch them sit on the electric wire and take turns to quench their thirst by flying down to the water troughs.

According to some media reports about the weather, under severe heat wave conditions, Jaipur had the hottest day in 33 years and if it the temperature rises beyond its present mark, it will reach the one which was recorded 116 years ago, speculated Rajasthan Patrika.

In Rajasthan, Shergarh recorded a temperature of 49 degrees Celsius on June 8. It is expected that coming 48 hours are going to be the worst ever in Rajasthan.
