It is that time of the year again when the cold wave hits the national capital, Delhi and the internet gets creative. On Wednesday, the minimum temperature recorded in New Delhi was 3.5 degree celsius and according to India Meteorological Department (IMD), the condition will remain like this till Friday.
Delhi winters are harsh yet exciting for a lot of people living in the city. With piercing cold winds blowing in the national capital, netizens have come up with hilarious and relatable memes. While some complain about the umpteen layers of clothes that one wears, another mentions the anxiety of taking a bath. The internet has a meme for every winter related issue.
A victim of Delhi winters compared his situation to Pakistani meme sensation Momin Saqib and posted this:
Another user commented on the surprise of men who see women still owning their fashion game despite the winter weather.
However, not all is that bad in winters, as one user said, “Advantage of living in Delhi is that you hardly receive electricity bill in winters. We have received latest electricity bill of just 390 Rs. #Delhi (sic)”
One user was clearly agitated by the winter conditions in the capital and asked people to stop romanticising the weather.
While another user compared the winters in Mumbai to winters in Delhi and tweeted this:
For some, the only way to survive the winter season was a hot cup of tea or coffee.
The bone-chilling weather also requires us to bundle up in layers of clothes as this woman tweeted:
Another user tweeted how a family reacts when their relative from Canada mentions that they have not experienced real winters:
For some, the harsh weather has prepared them enough and they will not be surprised if it even starts snowing in Delhi.

The severe cold weather is likely to remain like this in areas of Delhi, Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh for the next 24 hours. The icy cold winds blowing from the snow-covered western Himalayas has brought the minimum temperature down sharply.

In a recent tweet, the weather department said that these conditions are likely to remain for the next two days and will dissipate by Sunday and next week.
