If this doesn’t wake us up to the evils of air pollution, we don’t know what will. According to PTI and this report, Delhi’s air quality witnessed a gradual regression on Diwali and the day after, due mainly to the fireworks, with some areas recording ‘critical’ levels of pollution, and the rest ‘very poor’.

In fact, the World Air Quality Index even issued a health alert, on Diwali, due to the potential “serious health effects” especially among patients, children and the elderly. 

The IGI Airport station of System of Air Quality, Weather Forecasting and Research (SAFAR) says that Noida and Delhi University (North) are expected to record higher levels of pollution, while Lodi Road and Mathura Road will witness less. 

We think it’s time to do something about it, and soon. Meanwhile, here’s where you can buy masks and air purifiers.
