The residents of Indian capital city New Delhi were in for a pleasant surprise as they woke up on 8th January 2020. They were overwhelmed with happiness after seeing that it was raining in the city as it would not only make the climate a little pleasant but also reduce the smog and pollution to some extent.
There is no denying the fact that the pollution levels in Delhi have crossed the alarming point and it has become pretty difficult for Delhites to breathe and live there. In such a scenario, rain brought a relief for them and suddenly the city started looking like a hill station.
The same weather was experienced in the nearby cities such as Noida, Faridabad, Gurugram, etc. and it resulted in troubles for the commuters as well but still the majority of the population was quite happy with rains.
Within few minutes, #DelhiRains started trending on the micro-blogging site Twitter and people started expressing their happiness. While some were pleased to skip their college, few were thankful to rain because they overslept and several others were hoping to go for a long drive in such a lovely weather.
Here is a collection of some tweets under the hashtag #DelhiRains:
Thank God for #DelhiRains. Atleast now I have a reason to skip college 🙂

You can take a Mumbaiker out of Mumbai but you can't take Mumbai out of her.
A nice rain shower, even in this wintery Delhi puts smiles on my face, a spring in my steps and a song on my lips 🤩#DelhiRains 💦💦

While Delhi witnessed rains for just one day, some of the hilly areas of the country were experiencing heavy rains for more than 36 hours.
