Dear God

Subject: Chennai Weather

I know you must be completely occupied with your December, 2012 plans but meanwhile, with due regards, I would sheepishly like to draw your attention towards the dismal weather scenario in Chennai. Its 2nd week of May and temperature is already soaring up to 44C. Sometimes, it feels that Equator’s epicenter is this place only and we are inside some kind of an unregulated oven. Humidity, BEWARE. Freaking 80%. It takes 20 minutes for the weather here to expose the brand of my baniyan (vests) I am wearing inside. Not only this, I have been sweating so badly that in the last few days I have tasted every salt my body has produced through the sweat and trust me it’s not NaCl(common salt), it taste way weird. About body odour, dude worst!!!! Guess what, if odour were visible, as color is, I'd see the summer garden in rainbow clouds.

God, as per my class 2nd Gulmohar books, there are 4 seasons. (World Meteorological Department later confirmed me as well) But it seems like you have completely forgotten about winter. About spring, don’t you even ask. People have even stopped expecting it here. Probably, the next generations of Chennai won’t even have the description of spring in their school-curriculum. Not fair god. It’s just summer and dreadful eternal summer here. And YOU MR. SIDNEY SHELDON, Nothing Last Forever, HUH, my foot. God, I am not accusing you but literally I feel that the sub ordinates to whom you have given the in charge of Chennai zone are perhaps busy listening to Radio Mirchi 98.3 FM, “its hot” without realizing the fact that Chennai is turning way hotter.

Trust me god, the constant sweating while watching cricket matches (IPL season 4 these days) is exceptionally irritating. You just imagine how you will feel when this same sweating annoys you while you are watching the classy dance of Urvashi and other apsaras.

Dear god, I don’t want to hurt your sentiments. In fact, I am a big follower of yours. I appreciate the way you designed the whole Darwinian thing to take place cell by call, gene by gene, one by one. You also made dinosaurs to extinct which I personally feel that you did the right thing. Do same with the cockroaches. Least to mention, you made India win the WC and I know deep inside that when that winning six was struck, it was not Dhoni, it was you.(okk fine, enough of buttering).

But god, please please pleases, for god’s sake, take Chennai seriously. After all, it’s a metropolitan (according to article 738:1939). Till today, DOORDARSHAN includes Chennai while telling the chaar mahanagron ka taapmaan during National NEWS, then why don’t you include it in your priority list. God please don’t concentrate all the UVs of India over us only. Distribute to Bangalore and Pune as well.

Awaiting immediate response

Truly yours (except in May)

Vineet Singh

Resident, Chennai

PS: That’s it, confirmed, I will go to hell. L

it was hilarious and i enjoyed every line you wrote.

I was brought up Orissa where temp touches 48 degrees in April, and it used to do so four years ago; but i doubt I can apply to God on the grounds of privileges Chennai has. :)

akanksha said...

Never been to Chennai but heard so many stories about the weather.And this one was the best ever!!!

Also, in an attempt to save Chennai, please don't ask God to disrupt Pune.I am in love with that city!But, I don't mind distribution of heat to Bangalore though.

Thousif Raza said...

loved the post first time here n will be here again :).... i hope god's mail bank is free for this letter.... because i guess he'd need a smile too ;)

take care and keep writing............

vineet said...

@madhumati: waah, thnks to u n ur friend..all my pleasure

Lehari. said...

"you made India win the WC and I know deep inside that when that winning six was struck, it was not Dhoni, it was you"

hilarious read !
cheerz !

trisha said...

this is too good vineet, well we the people from kolkata share your misery.

we dont know what spring is, we have almost forgotten winter. all we know is killer heat and choking monsoon.

this post is awesome! it made me smile and forget the blood boiling inside my body. :(

i hope god will hear and sack his present employees and appoint new ones.

tarunima said...

delhi is boiling!:(

TALON said...

I loved this. I had to laugh at the "buttering" part. God must have so many things to deal with, I wonder if his helpers (such as Mother Nature) are feeling overwhelmed. She seems to have left the faucets on in our part of the world and can't seem to shut them off. I can't figure out if the faucets are broken or stuck. :)

Hope you get some relief from the intense heat soon!

vineet said...

@lehari: glad u liked it

trisha: LOL at ur comment, it seems like whole India is suffering the curse.

tarunima: deyin chennai, u will evaporate by now

@talon:thnks, hope we get relief, it rained like hell yesterday so i presume plea was heard

Aparna said...


hOPE god takes immediate measures reading your letter

Hey don't ask god to distribute heat to Bangalore...! i live here.

Let him dissipate heat to mumbai or delhi

Eeshie said...


Certified shit, indeed.


Rockford said...

Quite a superb writeup.. Feeling the same @Kolkata. :)
Keep blogging and I will keep following you.

Beyond Horizon said...

Did you get your response? Probably the untimely showers was his reply... :(

Hehehe...and there was lot of buttering :P
Don't worry you won't be in hell alone, everyone is thinking the same these days ;)

A really nice post from you after long time...worthy wait :)

Vinati said...

Haha...I had a good read.
keep writing, Vivek!! =)

Take care!

vineet said...

@Vinati: thanks :)

@beyond horizon: yaa i did get, dere were sheowers fr around 2 dayz here in chennai bt later on, back to normal,dayymm itt!!

@rockford: kolkata=pseudochennai, jus feel the warmth of chennai n u gonna forget Kolkata :P

@Eeshie: truly

@aparna: my frnds @Blore mocks me abt chennai, its revenge time..its war.(though i m loosing dat war by a big margin as its raining cats and dogs there in Blore) :(

Rachit said...

hehe.. that was awesome... just add Lucknow too there.. :)

Unnati said...

Hey! I read this letter of yours in a magazine. And I feel, it's just awesome! Very creative! :D

Rachna Chhabria said...

Please Vineet, Do Not give God ideas about sending a little bit of the heat to Bangalore. Your letter is heart tugging, but mention another city. Bangalore has way too much pollution and traffic. We do not need the heat to add to our woes.

the thinking cupcake said...

we will consider your application & get back to you..
till then, please dont melt :P

the weather wing!!
