Surviving the Mumbai summers without air conditioning (AC) can be challenging due to the extreme heat and high humidity levels. While it is technically possible to endure the heat without air conditioning, it can significantly affect your comfort and well-being.
AC provides a controlled and cool environment, which can be essential for maintaining a comfortable living space during scorching heat. However, it’s worth noting that people have been living in hot climates for centuries without the luxury of air conditioning, but not in Mumbai.
A viral image shows a makeshift room that has a split air conditioner, right over a drain; have a look.

It is summer, and without air conditioning it is impossible to bear the heat. But who would have imagined an air conditioner in a temporary space directly above the drain?
Now the same thing is being shown in Mumbai in an image that is going viral online. ‘Gabbar’, a Twitter user, posted a photo of a makeshift community in Mumbai on the microblogging platform.
The split air conditioner caught our eye even though the photo shows a relatively low-maintenance room. Not to mention, the room is directly above a drain.
“A split air conditioner in a makeshift room built over a huge open drain. Mumbai in a nutshell,” the Twitter user wrote when posting the image.
The Internet was not surprised by the image.
One man pointed out, “There’s an ocean view tower called kanakia miami behind this cabin.”
