With summer setting in and the temperature in the Capital rising by the day, people naturally flock towards water bodies to get some respite from the heat.

The camera candidly captures the reflection of a couple of children walking gingerly beside a fountain near the India Gate greens.

With the temperature threatening to touch the 40 degree celsius threshold, Delhiites prepare for hotter days ahead.

Anticipating huge water shortage, Delhi is planning to garner an additional 85 million gallons of water per day — most of it from Haryana — to meet the increasing demand.
