Would you rather be stuck in a heatwave, spit-roasted alive under the slow-burning flame of the scorching summer sun or drown in the trenches of filthy gutter water amidst incessant torrential downpour that like most men on Tinder, can't seem to take a hint? Answer: would rather be in Manali, enjoying mountain Maggi and chilly gusts of wind.
But anyway, fantasy aside, Bangalore is undergoing some ugly rainfall and Twitter is going berserk:
Bangalore is back to the clothes are not drying weather. #bangalorerains— Hemisha હેમિશા (@hmaroliadsilva) May 16, 2022
It rained so much that the every street smells of rasam and looks like it too.#bangalorerains— Bindu Rao (@binduraocomedy) May 18, 2022
Twitter: Bangalore weather is such a bliss!— Peter Wen-Alen Schiff (@Alexjohnes4) May 17, 2022
Plebeians: Try taking a walk in the rain. You'll return like the kid in Tide detergent's ad...#bangalorerains

We encroached upon lakes and converted them into concrete jungles. Now, with the rains, Bengaluru has become one big lake.— Gautham Machaiah (@GauthamMachaiah) May 17, 2022
#bangalorerains A 5km stretch took me 2h & 30min to cover ,reached home past midnight ,Bengaluru has turned into a big dirty swimming pool overnight.#BBMP pls stop this repeated white topping of pavements and instead provide access for rain water to percolate into earth pic.twitter.com/TXpUeKeorx— Nirmala Ramaiah # SaveSoil (@Nirmala87723858) May 17, 2022
If it rains another few hours this way, Knee-level water will become chest-level on Bengaluru roads.— Latha (@DrlathaC) May 17, 2022
At trying hours like this, let's not forget to honour the unsung warriors who brave against all odds to keep our cities safe. If you are in a position of privilege, in any capacity, lend a helping hand to those in need!
Rescued a puppy today. It was about to wash away in today's Bangalore's torrential rains. There were two puppies actually, the other one was already dead.— Veertineni Prabhakar (@pustakalapurugu) May 17, 2022
Our family's planning to adopt him if he survives. Pray for him.#bangalorerains #RescueDogs
If you still think climate change is a hoax, please stick your head down the toilet or even better, enjoy a relaxing dip in the sewer water infested streets of Bangalore.
