It is very hot in India. It is 47°C. This weather makes people sick. Many people are in hospital. Around 1,700 people die.

The electricity grid is overused. It does not work well. Many people have no electricity.

People should drink a lot of water. They should stay out of the sun. They should cover their heads.

Difficult words: electricity grid (the system which moves electricity), overused (used too much), should (if you should do something, it is good to do it).
