    My answer may not be related to astrology. As a person I truly love Chennai. Yes it would be hot. But not as hot as Delhi, Rajasthan. You have so many things to appreciate in summer. Cool beaches, delicious mangos, wonderful cane juice / coconut water, the wonderful taste of ice water as soon as you reach back home.

    As long as you don't venture between 11.30-3.00 you would be fine.

    Stay indoor,have plenty of water and fruits like mangoes,water melon,musk melon,etc.
    Finish your work early and avoid staying in the kitchen for long during the day.
    Do not venture out between 11 and 3 .
    Enjoy the fresh air in the terrace at night.
    Go to the beach in the evenings when ever possible.
    Take plenty of cucumber,coconut water,and butter milk.
    Wear cotton ,apply sandalwood paste,it keeps you cool.
    Keep all the curtains drawn as the house becomes cool.
    As someone said it is not as bad as it is in the North,you can manage.

    Summers in Chennai can get really hot. It is just the beginning. Summer brings with it its share of good and bad.

    It does not get as hot as Delhi or Rajasthan, but you just have to get used to the sweating. It might feel sticky and humid but the plus side is that the sweat keeps the skin cool unlike north India where summers are dry and you can actually feel the hot air blowing.

    The other problm that comes with the heat is the rise in mosquitoes. Use mosquito nets at night and do leav surfaces wet. Clean the house and spray regularly.

    Fruits like water melon and mangoes are in plenty. Keep yourself weel hydrated and eat lots of fresh veggies n fruits and consume lots of juices.

    As for skin care, be sure to use a sunscreen when you go out. If you are going out between mid morning and mid noon do take an umbrella with you to prevent the hot sun rays and also wear a pair of sunglasses to avoid eye strain.

    Otherwise, its ok. I hope your first summer in Chennai will be a refreshing and enjoyable one!
