Everything has two sides

There's always a bright side

My house in Kolkata is sandwiched between two other buildings with only the regulated minimum distance maintained. This means my apartment gets only a glimpse of sunlight any given day. But that also means that the apartment remains cool even in the harshest summer day.

And there's always a dark side

My mother-in-law resides in a house which doesn't have a building for at least 40 ft on either side. This means the house gets a lot of sunlight. It also means the house becomes a furnace during the peak summer (which is now).
