As summers creep up slowly, we can feel the heavy heat wave make its way through in different parts of the world. In India itself, the heat is excruciating with heavy droughts affecting most northern regions and killing crops and drying up water bodies.
Apart from that, the heat is surely having an adverse effect on humans and animals alike and we're wondering when the monsoons are going to hit us.
But, even though we're miserably bearing this heat, some parts of the world are far worse, when it comes to dealing with the sun.
Incidentally, a man from Kuwait died from the strong heat wave that has engulfed the country. He suffered a heatstroke and passed away, with his tools next to his body. The forensic reports stated an overexposure to the sun. And this happened because Kuwait recorded its hottest day in the month and you won't believe how far the temperature rose.
Kuwait recorded its highest temperature so far, which was also the hottest day in the world on the 8th of June, 2019. The maximum temperature recorded was 52.2 degrees Celsius, in the shadows and 63 degrees Celsius, under direct sunlight, as reported by Gulf News.
The same day, Saudi Arabia recorded a maximum temperature of 55 degrees Celsius at Al Majmaah, during noon. That is by far the hottest day recorded in the history of weather updates, and here we are complaining about a mere 43 degrees Celsius!

Kuwait summers are largely unpredictable and the meteorologists have predicted that maximum temperature could reach up to 68 degrees Celsius in July.
India, by far has been experiencing its own climatic divide. While the southern regions are experiencing monsoon, the northern parts are going through immense heat. The highest temperature recorded yet was 48.9 degrees Celsius in Charu, a city in Rajasthan.
