This isn't unusual. The city has extreme temperatures in summer and winter every year. :shrug:

How do people in New York handle heat?

This isn't unsual. The city has extreme temps in summer and winter every year.
How cold does it get in winter?

The coldest recorded is a little below zero degree celsius. ( - 0.6) to be exact.
The highest recorded is 47.2 degree celsius.

Delhi has really extreme weather. I feel Delhi at 4 Celsius is equivalent to -10C in America. That horrible fog makes it so miserable in the winter.

-0.6℃ hardly can be judged as "extreme":unsure:

Moscow had it in a range of 35-43C for more than a month last summer. Aggravated by severe smoke from wildfires. Moscow! Where one day of such a weather is normally a weather event. People survived. For Delhi? This is a normal weather, I think..

Lower temperatures around the Zero degree Celsius, are extreme by indian standards, especially if you have very high summer temperatures. Most of the North Indian states do not experience such harsh temperatures at the extreme ends. Possibly, with the exception of Gujarat and Rajasthan.
In Mumbai, anything lower than 10 degree celsius in winter would be termed extreme. :)

Of course there is! :facepalm: Many states in the North have below 0 degree celsius temperatures and snowfall, but they don't have 40 + temperatures in summer.

Today it was 37C in Kolkata with 80% humidity, which means it felt like 45C :tape: And later this week the temperature is supposed to be 42C :help: Here we can handle the temperature but the humidity makes it awful :( Sweating a lot is a continuous process :(

In Delhi, the humidity is not much, so even if it is above 40C, it doesn't feel so, because people don't sweat a lot. I have visited Delhi in the summer, so I am speaking from experience. And the minimum winter temperatures in Delhi are always around 2-3C :)

India is situated near the equator, so the climate is supposed to be hot and humid. We get 8-9 months of summer here, so we are used to it ;)

And yes, there is also snow in India. Many northern states near the Himalayas do get snowfall in winter and the summer temperatures there do not get so high :)
