A family from the city of Bangalore has spent their entire winter in a cabin at the New Delhi International Airport as they try to survive the winter.
India has one of the worst winters on record, and residents have spent the past year waiting for the weather to change, in an attempt to make the winter safe and manageable.
In the past few months, a number of flights have been cancelled and there has been an influx of flights from the UK, China, Brazil and Australia.
On Sunday, a passenger from London to Bangalore said that they were forced to wait for over an hour in the rain at the airport, which they said was not unusual.
“I have been waiting for hours,” said the passenger, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
Another passenger who arrived in New Delhi earlier this week said they were “very grateful” for the “good weather” in India.
This is the first time that we’ve been in a cold winter,” said an Indian passenger from Bangalore who was travelling to New Delhi.
He said the hotel they were staying in was “unbearably cold” and had a lack of air conditioning.
The British government has been sending packages of food and blankets to the Indian capital for those in need. “
We will not rest until we can guarantee a safe, dry and comfortable winter season,” he said.

At least 5,700 people have been killed in the country in the past three months, with an estimated 300,000 missing and over 1.4 million injured.
