Everyone in Delhi knows that they are in the middle of an environment crisis with very few precedents at least in our country. However, it still seems a lot of people are unwilling to accept the fact that the smog is not really good for them. What else can explain more crackers being burst in the city as part of Chhatt Puja celebrations.

If you need something to drive the point in, here are a couple of photographs that show why this smog is something we should be very worried about. The set of photographs were taken by Dharam Pal, a joint secretary in the Department of Fertilisers. The senior bureaucrat was on his way back from Gangtok when he noticed this.

The photos show how the Himalayas are clearly visible from eastern India, but hide behind the smog cover as you look at it from North India. Others who have flown into Delhi over the past week have also reported how it is impossible to see the city before they come in to land because of the thick smog cover.

      NDTV India is otherwise watchable channel compared to 24X7 cousin minus of course Bhawish and his sinister agenda. Coming to government intervention, NDTV guys are lucky democracy has kept them in the game. A system anything less than fully democratic would have carted them to jail while channel vanishes altogether.

            Delhi should celebrate Cracker-less Christmas and New Year to bring down pollution level. They can also celebrate booze-less New Year as drunken and rash driving after New Year celebration lead not only to killing of dogs on streets but also humans.

                Dayaluu BJP ko koti koti pranaam for having allowed NDTV to exist. It is BJP's largesse, not NDTV's Consutional Right.
