New Delhi, January 05, 2013
From Bollywood songs to poetry dedicated to it, Delhi winter has its share of lovers and haters too. Friday faced the coldest January morning in Delhi in the last five years, as mercury dropped to 2.7 degrees celsius, 4 notches below normal. While some took relief in dhaba chai, others sat huddled around fire. And, Twitter was abuzz with mixed feelings.

The homeless get no respite in Delhi. Death tolls rise with the temperature but also with drastic drops in the same
