How does one beat the heat, apart from the traditional methods?We all know that neem trees give us maximum shade. We also know that we need to consume a good amount of fresh coconut water, the juices from water melon, and eat mangoes that actually cools down our bodies.
However, the temperatures in most parts of the country, are upwards of 45 degrees. What can be done to beat this heat?
Since am not aware of the nature of trees, Members may please chip in with the variety of trees that actually will not only help us beat the heat, but also keep the entire atmosphere cool;.
Surely, there must be some methodology for growing such trees, and there must be some logic, based on scientific evidence to support such a logic.
Members may also highlight the trees that do not need much of water. In the place I live, we go for what we call "punga maram", which does give a lot of shade, but this tree takes years to grow, unlike the neem trees.
Please do let us know what all we can do to beat the heat. Growing trees is one thing. Can we consider roof gardens as an effective solution?
