Since ecological balance has been disturbed profusely, climatic changes are order of the day. Sudden change in weather conditions suffices to cause heat stroke, diarrhea and dysentery, cough, colds, influenza, other chest infections and their impact is so sudden and so severe that an affected person cannot take any preventive step. Weather cycles have changed everywhere and weather man’s forecasts generally prove wrong.

Use of air-coolers and conditioners has further added to the dilemma of the common man, as exposure is a common spectrum which spells out so many diseases. We cannot change the weather but we certainly can safeguard ourselves from such impacts. Keeping an umbrella can protect you from heat and rain.
