Delhi Rains: A light downpour days after the stringent humid weather was a delight for many in the Delhi NCR region. But before they could get their hands on a steaming plate of pakora with a cup of kadak chai, it stopped raining. Yes, disappointment prevailed in no time, but this condom brand is not feeling sorry about the situation. In fact, they have a rather quirky take on it.
Sharing a post on Instagram, condom brand Durex wrote, "Sorry not sorry.. #DelhiRains #DelhiRain #Delhi #Durex #DurexIndia." The post has a message which reads, "We're not sorry if we delayed your chai pakora plans and now it stopped raining."
