why is no holiday being declared with such temperatures. Other countries do announce holdays for cyclones and storms etc. Pity those who have to be out due to their work just because its a part of their job and they have no one to complain to.....

To those whose nature of work is mostly outdoor, may the Almighty God brace you with physical strength and endurance as you do your work while fasting..
