Soaring temperatures and heat wave gripped North India, as the locals tried to beat it by drinking fluids and tried to cover themselves as they drove their vehicles. The effect of the rising temperatures was visible in Allahabad when scores of people turned up to take bath at the Ganges River to beat the heat. For most of the people gathered, taking a bath in the cool river waters was a way to escape from the electricity and water shortage that Allahabad is currently facing.
