The heat prolongs

Is this summer? It seems to be worse than that. The City has been reeling under severe heat, quite unusual for this part of the year. With oven-like conditions, afternoons in particular and even the nights have become torrid. The prolonged dry spell has only compounded the problem further.

Drained of all energy, a group of labourers apparently migrated from the nearby districts in search of livelihood following the severe drought conditions, slip into deep slumber under the shade of a tree. How long will the hot conditions continue?
