Secret of a second home at hill
Urbanization has a beautiful face of increased infrastructure, shopping malls, sky scrapers, metro and mono rails, cinemas, job opportunities, etc. But the other face of it is impermeable surfaces, reduced greenery density, increased population and atmospheric heating in metros and cities.
In cities, especially metro like Chennai this leads to a high rise in the temperature even during the winter season and most importantly a consistent increasing trend in annual mean minimum temperature.
What about summers then?
Chennai is a hot and humid city; each and every summer is uncomfortable. The peak summer temperature in Chennai started crossing 40 °C frequently and shifting towards upward scale while the comfortable temperature for human being is between 22 °C to 27 °C.
Inorganic way of mitigating summer heat
Usage of Aircon is the common phenomenon known to all to mitigate this issue and people believe that the problem is resolved with it. But it is not so.
When the usage of Aircon increases, greenhouse gas emission becomes more. It triggers the ozone layer depletion and paves the way for further temperature increase in the upcoming years.
Can you imagine where this cycle is leading us to?
Yes towards unlivable thermal condition in the coming generations.
Organic ways to mitigate summer heat
There are many ways traditionally followed to manage this issue like roofs with coconut leafs, white walls, tree plantation around the house, etc instead of Air cons in the past. But today many of these concepts are not practically possible in cities and metros.
Moreover, continuous living in Aircon is not only expensive but also hazardous to health.
Is it a check mate then?
No. There are people in cities still protecting their village life by maintaining their village houses and farms. They spend the summer vacation there along with their family. By which they not only protect them, but also help the society by contributing green gas emission reduction from their part by avoiding Aircon usage in summer.
What if one do not have a nativity village or property there?
The only option left out is to own a hill station property and spend summer there.
