Health Tips To Avoid Falling Sick This Monsoon
After the scorching summer, rains, unarguably, is a pleasant experience. However, these pleasing moments might be spoiled by non-desirable health problems like a cough, cold, diarrhoea, etc. Therefore, taking precautions during the rainy season is important to stay healthy and happy throughout the monsoons.

- In rainy season roads tend to be slippery. So make sure you wear weather appropriate shoes.
