It has rained last night and Delhiites are loving it. Except that part about going to work. The highways are clogged, the streets are water-logged, and some of us are digging up all the pending compensatory offs as an excuse to enjoy the weather. If you’re thinking of stepping out, we have five cafes just perfect for the occasion.  By Jasmine Kaur
