In India the summer season begins in early March and lasts until late June. Much of Indian life during the summer is spent indoors and out of the sun. Daytime work is often abandoned between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Even so, the extreme heat claims thousands of lives each year. Even those acclimatized to such conditions are not immune to the power of the sun.
