Dealing with humidity in Delhi

Posted in Delhi forum

I'm from the West Coast of the United States, and I'm spending three months volunteering in Delhi. How do you deal with the humidity??? It feels like there is no difference between a quick shower, rain, and normal weather.

    Thank goodness for the monsoons - otherwise I think I would have died from the weather. Thanks for your help!

    I agree with Pramod in that you will have to shift to the hill stations to avoid the Indian summer. The weather you describe in Delhi isn't that humid (as compared to Mumbai or Chennai both coastal metros).

    If your work is indoor an air-conditioner would relieve you of any discomfort. If you work outdoors try the local fan based coolers that spray water to cool the surroundings. They work quite well and are low priced.

    The monsoon usually reaches Delhi by the first week of July. You should be relieved of the heat and humidity by then.
