The National Capital Region woke up to a heavy downpour on 31 August.
The rains brought the morning traffic in the region to a standstill, affecting countless commuters who left homes early in the morning to reach schools, colleges and workplaces.
Many offices in Gurugram declared a work from home for employees. With many stuck in endless traffic jams, Delhiites took to Twitter to try and make the best of the situation.
Soon enough, the microblogging platform was full of both tweets of frustration as well as jokes at the expense of the residents of the National Capital. After all, what better way to deal with the wrath of the monsoon than with a pinch of humour?
In case you missed out on the fun, here are some of the best tweets from the day:
