Owing to the cold and windy weather, prakopa of Kapha dosha is happening. Vata is also getting aggravated and thus the pain related illnesses make life miserable. The body is passing through so many catabolic activities and hence the agni will be more. As a result, people get symptoms like cold, sore throat, different types of pain etc.
