Ajay Yadav got the idea to make sunny-side-up eggs after he left a pan outside in the sun for over an hour. Yadav lives in a shanty, and when he touched the pan, it was so hot he thought about trying to cook an egg. He left the pan in the sun, and after 10 minutes, the egg was cooked.
Yadav works washing clothes. He spends a lot of time outdoors. He says that clothes dry very quickly because the sun is always shining down.
The temperatures are sometimes so unbearable that Yadav sleeps with a wet shirt on. There’s no other way for him to cope with the extreme heat. Thousands of people who, like Yadav, live in shanties, are having a problem dealing with the heatwave that goes across the Indian subcontinent. The extreme heat has killed over 1,400 people across the country.
According to government records, most of the victims were construction workers, the elderly, or the homeless. The weather experts have issued heatwave warnings for the states of Odisha, Andhra Pradesh, and Jharkhand. Those places have high chances of heatstroke, dehydration, and fatality because temperatures there reach the highest point.
