Short Take: Pleasant Present

BY JAMIL KHAN

AS a newcomer to the city, I was informed about the scorching summer season in Sharjah. The drizzle of last week and cold breeze in the nights had changed the perspective about the city known for its sizzling heat.

I am one among those who take the words of close friends seriously and hence avoided taking any warm clothes and other attires before departure for the UAE.

This resulted in shivering during the nights and facing cold breeze in the day throughout the week.

On my way from hotel to workplace, the taxi driver had some advice for me to buy warm clothes as soon as possible as the weather in the city had become impossible to predict.

“Due to massive plantation in the last couple of years, the weather in Sharjah and Dubai has become pleasant and hope people will continue to enjoy the real winter season on streets,” he giggled.
