Villagers set up beds on trees after mercury soars to 43 deg Celsius


Villagers in Chhattisgarh decided to set up their beds on trees after temperature in Chhattisgarh touched 43 degree Celsius.

They used bamboos to make a sturdy base and tied them to the tree trunk. They put mattresses over the bamboo base, to make the bed cosy.

They were seen helping each other to use ropes to climb the tree.

“The land is hot and so our houses also become really hot. Our children fall sick. So, we decided to take shade under the trees. It’s cooler here,” said the villagers.
