ARMAN ALI, prominent disability rights activist tells us what keeps him cool in summer arman5


White is my favourite colour and I am mostly seen in white shirts. I love wearing white cotton linen shirts which helps keep me cool.


I love wearing dark shades. It helps in keeping cool in the sun.


In summer, the key to keep cool is to eat less  and drink lot of water and juices.


This year I am also planning to wear kurta pajama to work . They are very comfortable and makes you look cool!
