In many places unpredictable rain keep taking place and at some places the Sun shines so brightly that you just cannot go outside without a cover. If it is cloudy or bright sun shine and you need to go out, do you prefer to carry your umbrella in your bag or along with you to protect yourself or you just do not care to carry it?

In our country the weather is not so unpredictable. Anyway, if I go out for the day, I keep a folding umbrella in my handbag.

It is wiser on your part to keep an umbrella in your bag because you never know when the weather will turn adverse.

@dpk262006 It can help also in summer if it's too hot, to protect your head from the sun.

@Sreekala You are right,but they harm those who stay too long in the sun.I don't need to expose myself to Sun rays only for a few minutes.

@Shivram59 - It is okay if you do not feel like carrying an umbrella just to protect you from sun rays. It depends how long you are required to remain outside, specially during summer months.

@Shavkat So there is a possibility that you are caught off guard, if you do not have an umbrella?

Yes, it is wiser on your part to save yourself in the scorching heat with the help of your umbrella. I think protection given by Umbrella helps you walk on the streets.

@magallon When you carry umbrella, there seems no justification walking without it on the streets.

Do you face lots of sunshine, when you are outside? or do you live at a place, where it rains very often?

I used to carry an umbrella in my bag but when winter season starts I taken it out and kept at home. Now it seems I have to keep the same in bag for escaping from the Sun.

Yes, you are right that during winters, the Sun is not so harsh and one can make do without carrying an umbrella. However, once the winter gets over and Sun starts shining in its full glory, it is better to carry an umbrella with us for our protection.

The weather in the UK is very unpredictable. It can start off bright and sunny and within hours it will be raining. I prefer to wear a coat with a hood rather than carry an umbrella.

Even if the weather is unpredictable, you don't feel like carrying an umbrella. May be you feel that it is an extra burden, instead you prefer to wear a raincoat to protect yourself.

@dpk262006 You can get those fold up umbrellas which fit in a bag but they are hopeless in the wind.

@sprite1950 I more or less agree with you that smaller foldable umbrellas do not help, if it is very windy.

Of course when it is not raining, there is no need to pull out your umbrella from your car.

Yes, if there is continuous downpour, it is wiser to always keep an umbrella. Here it is spring and there are no rains as such (here in New Delhi).

If I am going to be outside and don't care if I get wet, I just get wet.. lol However, if I do care if I get wet, my handbag is not big enough to hold my umbrella, so I would carry it. By the way, I sent you a message, I hope you can help me with a member who also lived in India.

It is interesting to hear that you do not care about getting wet and you many a times do not carry your umbrella with you. I have not received any message from you, could you please send it again.

@dpk262006 I change my answer. I still wouldn't carry an umbrella, but I will wear a poncho, a plastic cover. I did this Sunday when we went to the zoo and it poured at least 4-5 times and I had my phone on me as well as snacks in my backpack. So there are times I don't want to get wet..

It is safer rather than feeling sorry. It is wiser on your part to carry one small umbrella in your bag, as rains could take place anytime in Bangalore. The uncertainty of weather should not catch you unaware.
