Delhiites welcomed the rains despite facing traffic snarls on Wednesday. “This year’s monsoon till now was just a few showers here and there. That was only increasing the humidity and temperature, though it was not reaching like that in summer,” said Madvi Saxena, resident, Vasant Vihar.

“Monsoon this time was uncomfortable since there was hardly any rain,” he added.
