Smart way to escape sun burn!!

All those people who have been following this blog would know that the Superdrive team on the White Route has been traversing through the hottest belts of India viz. Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Chhattisgarh.

And it was during this hot drive that I noticed a huge number of people, males and females alike, covered from top to bottom, sans just their eyes to escape from the oppressive heat. Initially, it looked absurd as I felt it would make them feel more uncomfortable. But once I saw my extremely dark skin turning darker by the day, I understood that the locals know best and their technique is the right way to escape sun burn in these unbelievably hot places.


  1. But I remember reading Pune Police had security concerns with this way of covering the face...

  2. Yes, covering the face is banned, considering the cases of hit and run. However, the police and the local authorities understand the importance 0f covering self up as direct sunlight can cause more damage to individuals instead of few criminals
