Bengaluru man seeks Refuge in OYO

Bengaluru, a city which is often celebrated for its mild climate, is currently facing an intense heatwave, with temperatures soaring beyond comfort. 

Amid this unusual heat, Rishabh Srivastava, a resident of the city, found a unique way to escape the scorching temperatures. Turning to X, he shared his plight and innovative solution.

"Looks like Bangalore weather decided to level up from chill to grill. Can't survive without AC anymore. Checked into an OYO as a refugee," Rishabh humorously posted on Elon Musk-owned X (formerly Twitter).


This witty remark quickly caught the eye of OYO Rooms, a popular hospitality chain. 

Jumping into the conversation with a playful response, OYO Rooms tweeted, "Bangalore, you had one job. But now, we're doing it."

This light-hearted exchange didn't go unnoticed, with Ritesh Agarwal, the CEO of OYO, amplifying the message by resharing the post on his own X account.

Bengaluru, which known as India's startup capital, has recently recorded its highest maximum temperature for March in the past five years, hitting 36.4 degrees Celsius. The situation worsened as temperatures in Karnataka's Kalaburagi crossed the 40-degree Celsius mark, signaling heatwave conditions.

The crisis is deepened by Bengaluru's water woes, with the city facing a significant shortfall in its daily water supply, exacerbated by depleting groundwater levels and drought in the Cauvery basin.
