You know summer is here when you hear, 'chubti jalti garmi ka mausam aaya' or you see the classic Glucon-D advertisement where the sun sucks all the energy leaving you dehydrated, which is rather true. Sucking on ice cubes and golas is a cheat that you can afford during summer, but nothing beats water or water-based drinks when it comes to staying hydrated.
